Oklahoma Football Coach Resignation

Post by Aggie84025 » August 8th, 2022, 9:08 am

One of the Oklahoma's coaches resigned due to reading aloud a racist word that was on the I-Pad of one of the players. It says he resigned not sure if he was forced to or not, but this seems to be excessive to me. Not saying i support reading aloud the words on the players I-Pad, but if he was forced to resign that seems way too much for this situation.

Sounds like a set up, doesn't it?


You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I read somewhere they took a player vote on his resignation and a majority of players believed he should stay. I wonder if it's one player who was offended and went to the administration and they're the ones applying the pressure.

He is a carryover from previous staffs I believe but obviously isn’t a Venable’s guy. I would have to think that if Venable’s really wanted to keep him on the staff the result would have been different. Seems like Venable’s may have been looking for a reason to justify purging him from the staff and this coach gave him a great reason to do so without much backlash.

Thanks for sharing, that goes into more detail than the initial report.
