Mike Gundy has been photographed in the shirt on Facebook and the photo was then circulated on Twitter. NAO, which means One America News Network, has attacked the movement Black Lives Matter, the champion Donald Trump, criticizes the mainstream media and recycles regularly conspiracy theories.
The teammates of Hubbard were soon born. Teven Jenkins said he and the offensive line have supported his comments, while the linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga has tweeted “I’m with him!” in response to the tweet of Hubbard.
The former star of the Oklahoma State AJ Green, one of the best receivers wide of the NFL, has added his voice to the reaction. “I can no longer remain silent! Call a spade a spade !! “, he wrote on Twitter.
Gundy, who played the position of quarterback for the Oklahoma State and is the head coach of the team since 2005, has spoken of his admiration for the NAO in the past. In April, he praised the way the network had covered the pandemic Covid-19.
“People infected with the virus, they rely on, they are back in public, they have antibodies that may help the fight,” he said. “It is really interesting to me to see what the mainstream media, unfortunately, how the world can be negative. See just the news. Let’s start by putting positive things, because I know that there are positive things out there. ”
Gundy has published later a statement on his comments. “I have been informed that the comments of my press conference to have offended some,” he said. “I never had the intention to offend anyone and I apologize for that. My first priority is and always will be the student athletes and do what is best for the program and the university. ”
A spokesman for the State of Oklahoma has declared that the university had no comment on this issue.
The comments of Hubbard came on the same day that a coach in Iowa, has left the team after allegations that he made racist remarks against black players.
