A few weeks ago, longtime Oklahoma wide receiver coach Cale Gundy resigned after reading “a racially-charged word” from a player’s tablet during a position meeting.
The backlash surrounding the situation reached news outlets across the country, but the support from former and current players has been overwhelming, as those closest to Cale know that his name and racist don’t belong in the same sentence.
Still, Gundy has remained relatively quiet since his resignation, but that will change on Friday night as Gundy will join former Sooner legends Barry Switzer and Billy Sims at the River Spirit Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma. An event known as the Coaches Cabana is scheduled, and will be an opportunity for Oklahoma fans to see former coaches, players, and special guests from week to week during the college football season.
This will be the first time that Gundy has made a public appearance and only the second time he has been heard from since the incident, the other time being when he was asked to come and speak to Millwood High School shortly after his resignation.
While his legacy will be tainted by recent events, Cale Gundy has been beloved in Norman and surrounding area for decades and that doesn’t appear to be changing anytime soon.
