Cale Gundy the assistant head coach at Oklahoma and the wide receivers coach has stepped down from his position and will leave the program. According to his own statement he is sorry for using the word he used in the film session.

“Last week, during a film session, I instructed my players to take notes. I noticed a player was distracted and picked up his iPad and read aloud the words that were written on his screen. The words displayed had nothing to do with football. One particular word that I should never – under any circumstances – have uttered was displayed on that screen. In the moment, I did not even realize what I was reading and, as soon as I did, I was horrified,” Gundy said when explaining his resignation.

“I want to be very clear: the words I read aloud from that screen were not my words. What I said was not malicious; it wasn’t even intentional. Still, I am mature enough to know that the word I said was shameful and hurtful, no matter my intentions. The unfortunate reality is that someone in my position can cause harm without ever meaning to do so.”

The word was not shown, but what was the word? To be that vile and toxic? For him to be fired basically is a shame. I wonder if the players will buck, I would. I mean he didn’t even write the word, that is crazy.
