One day after Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard lashed out at coach Mike Gundy on social media for wearing a T-shirt promoting a far-right news channel, Gundy apologized.
“I had a great meeting with our team today,” he said in a tweeted video. “Our players expressed their feelings as individuals and as team members. They helped me see, through their eyes, how the T-shirt affected their hearts.
“Once I learned how that network felt about Black Lives Matter, I was disgusted and knew it was completely unacceptable to me. I want to apologize to all members of our team, former players and their families for the pain and discomfort that has been caused over the last two days. Black lives matter to me. Our players matter to me.”
He was praised for it by many, but not by Aubrey Huff.
The 43-year-old, who spent 13 seasons in the MLB, took to Twitter and ripped the Oklahoma State head coach for caving to the pressure and actually apologizing.
“You’re spineless coach. As an ex @mlb player I’d never respect or listen to a coach who allowed me to publicly criticize him.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
