Yesterday, we wrote an article about Oklahoma State football coach, Mike Gundy. He was forced to meet with his players and then make a public apology after wearing a t-shirt with the right wing OAN (One America News) logo on it.
Now, a disturbing incident dating back to 1989 has resurfaced. Gundy was playing quarterback for Oklahoma State and reportedly used a racial slur against some Colorado players during a game. One of the players claiming he used the slur was Alfred Williams, who went on to have a long NFL career.
The story about the incident was published back in 1989 and Gundy denied it back then. He has not publicly commented since the story broke again yesterday but Williams did have plenty to say to The Oklahoman newspaper on Wednesday night.
“I remember that it was the first time that the University of Colorado beat Oklahoma State while I was there. It was a big win. It really was a big win. And I remember Mike Gundy called me the N-word. That’s what I remember.”
Williams says he doesn’t want Gundy fired now and there is no indication that Oklahoma State is even considering that. However, it is safe to say this story will not die out anytime soon.
