Former NFL football star O.J. Simpson enters for his parole hearing at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nev., on Thursday, July 20, 2017.

A Nevada parole board says O.J. Simpson has requested to live in Florida if he is released from prison.

Simpson then said, laughing, "I could easily stay in Nevada but I don't think you guys want me here."

The chairwoman of the parole commissioner said, "No comment here." Parole commissioners say he applied to live with family in Florida.

Simpson has spent more than eight years behind bars for armed robbery and assault with a weapon after trying to take back sports memorabilia in a budget hotel room in Las Vegas.
