Listen to Doug Gottlieb discuss the sweeping Mike Gundy fallout, as the head coach of the Oklahoma State football team continues to receive backlash after pictures surfaced of the Cowboys coach on a fishing trips with his sons wearing a t-shirt with the logo of conservative news network ‘One America News Network.’
The outrage was heavily triggered by OK State star running back Chuba Hubbard voicing his displeasure with the shirt on Twitter, which ignited the PR firestorm, and eventually reached its apex when Hubbard and Gundy made a video together embracing one another and admitting fault for how the situation got out of hand.
Hubbard tweeted 'I will not stand for this' in the replies of the original 'OAN' photo being posted, appearing to show that he didn't agree with Gundy wearing a shirt with the logo of a conservative news network, but didn't specify any other details about the right-leaning news network.
Gottlieb tweeted out on Tuesday afternoon that Oklahoma State football players then attempted to make demands towards altering some of Gundy’s locker room policies, including the dress code, and even the playing of music with derogatory language.
Gottlieb took exception when a writer from Bleacher Report, Tyler Conway, then responded to why Gundy had a locker room policy in the first place, and called the rules ‘racist.’
Check out the audio above as Gottlieb pushes back to the comments from Conway, and explains why a head football coach having expectations for his players isn’t remotely racist.
