Longtime Oklahoma Sooners assistant football coach Cale Gundy announced late on Sunday night that he had resigned from the program.
In a late-night Twitter posting, Gundy said he read aloud “a word that I should never — under any circumstance — have uttered” off the screen of a player’s iPad during a film session last week.
He added, “The unfortunate reality is that someone in my position can cause harm without ever meaning to do so. In that circumstance, a man of character accepts accountability. I take responsibility for this mistake. I apologize.”
The post also notes that Gundy “did not even realize” what he was reading and, as soon as he did, “I was horrified.”
Here’s a look at the full post.
Cale Gundy has been a staple of the Oklahoma football program for decades.
Cale is the younger brother of Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy and played quarterback for the Sooners from 1990 to 1993, setting several school records during his time in Norman. He joined the program as a coach in 1999 during Bob Stoops’ first season in Norman and never left. He spent 16 years as the running backs coach, then seven coaching inside receivers, and was OU’s assistant head coach.
During his time in Norman, Oklahoma has won 14 Big 12 titles, along with the 2000 national championship.
Offensive analyst L’Damian Washington will replace Gundy on an interim basis.
