*Warren Sapp’s ex co-workers at the NFL Network are reportedly happy that he was fired because he was a nightmare to work with, according to TMZ Sports.

Sapp was fired from his analyst gig after he was arrested for soliciting prostitutes in Arizona last Monday.

TMZ spoke with nearly a dozen current and former employees, and “everyone is telling us the same thing — GOOD RIDDANCE!!” TMZ reports.

TMZ continues:

In fact, the people we spoke with … ranging from low-level people all the way up to big shots … told us there was an unofficial “Sapp Disclaimer” when it came to interacting with the Hall of Famer.

Among the highlights:
-Don’t look Warren in the eyes (seriously).
-Introduce yourself, but DO NOT try to befriend him.
-Call him Warren. NEVER call him “Sapp.”

Of course, there are Sapp supporters … but even they couldn’t really defend the guy.
As one person put it, “I know certain people [at the Network] complained about the guy a lot but overall he was always cool … just unpredictable.”

Another person told us, “Warren has had one too many chances to get it right, and it just didn’t work out for him. We all wish him well in the end.”

As for his tough reputation around the office, it’s not the first time we’ve heard that about Sapp — back when he was on “Dancing with the Stars” he was known as the “diva” on set … and was constantly causing problems.
