Texas Tech Coach is Suspended for “Racist” Comment
On March 5, 2023, Texas Tech suspended men’s basketball coach Mark Adams for what the school deemed as an “inappropriate, unacceptable, and racially insensitive comment.”
Per the school, Adams was urging a player to be more receptive to coaching. On top of that, Adams referenced Bible verses concerning workers, teachers, parents, and slaves serving their masters. Adams issued an apology to the team upon discovering that the player was unsettled about the use of that specific Bible verse, a source said to ESPN.
Athletic director Kirby Hocutt learned about the incident. He sent Adams a written reprimand but then decided to suspend the coach to carry out a “more thorough inquiry of Adams’ interactions with his players and staff.”
The 66-year-old Adams is a graduate of Texas Tech and has been a coach of the Red Raiders since 2016, when he started out as an assistant coach under Chris Beard. He assumed the head coaching role in 2021.
Adams later resigned from his position on March 8. “My lifelong goal was to help and be a positive influence on my players, and to be a part of the Texas Tech men’s basketball team,” Adams stated. “However, both the University and I believe this incident has become a distraction for the Texas Tech men’s basketball team and the University, which I care about so deeply.”
Texas Tech basketball finished its season 16-16.
No matter if they’re in red states, universities continue to be massive breeding grounds for woke politics. For a proper right-wing restoration to occur in American politics, there must be a thorough purge of institutions of higher learning in America. We cannot let these people poison young professionals’ minds nor should they be allowed to clamp down on all forms of free speech.
