The players got their message out there and hopefully some changes will be made now.

The statement said that the players decided to return after consulting former head coach Doug Williams, who was fired Sept. 11. He was replaced by running backs coach George Ragsdale, who was in turn reassigned within the athletics department Thursday amid the player revolt. Defensive coordinator Dennis “Dirt” Winston was appointed to replace Ragsdale as interim head coach.

The statement said Williams main statement to the players was, “Go out there and play football.”

In a text message to USA TODAY Sports on Friday, Williams had said, “I’m proud of them boys. They took a stance.”
