Oklahoma University Football Coach Cale Gundy Resigned For Saying The N-Word Off Player’s iPad

It’s 2022, and there are certain words that everyone should know they can’t say, or they could be fired or canceled.

Longtime Oklahoma football assistant head coach and WR coach Cale Gundy said one of those words, and he has now resigned from his job. In a statement from his social media accounts, Gundy was very transparent about what happened, saying he noticed a player being distracted during a film session last week and also noticed the player was on his iPad.

After picking up the iPad, Gundy proceeded to read of what the iPad said and it was a “shameful and hurtful” word. He didn’t say what word it was but it’s probably easy to figure out what word was said.

“The unfortunate reality is that someone in my position can cause harm without ever meaning to do so,” Gundy wrote in a statement posted to his Twitter account. “In that circumstance, a man of character accepts accountability. I take responsibility for this mistake. I apologize.”

Gundy said that in the moment he “did not even realize” what he was reading and, as soon as he did, “I was horrified.”

“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,” Gundy wrote. “Still, I am mature enough to know that the word I said was shameful and hurtful, no matter my intentions.”

Gundy decided to resign from his job last night, and that has caused a big debate on whether he should have had to resign or not because he was reading the word from another player’s iPad. However, he is a 50-year-old man and should have known better.

There is definitely something else going on here. This doesn’t seem like something you fire someone for, especially if the players weren’t pushing for it.
