The old guy above really made a splash back into the national spotlight this week when word leaked out of Texas that Guy Morriss, the former University of Kentucky and Baylor head coach, had no problem at all that his Texas A&M-Commerce football team stole student newspapers.
His reasoning is astonishing, really, coming from a guy who’s held jobs at public (read: government backed) institutions.
Texas A&M University-Commerce football Head Coach Guy Morris admitted to police that his team was responsible for the removal of student newspapers distributed on campus Wednesday.
The East Texan published a story on Wednesday titled â€œFootball Player Arrested in Drug Bust.â€
Lt. Jason Bone, crime information officer, later interviewed Morris, who admitted to his team membersâ€™ involvement in the theft and said he supported their actions.
â€œI am proud of my players for doing that,â€ Morris said. â€œThis was the best team building exercise we have ever done.â€
Yep, Guy really said that. Police have video of two players ripping off the newspapers.
Then, because he’s a Texas bad ass, Guy called out the prosecutor when asked about charges being leveled against his team. â€œThen I guess I will be the first one out of the door in handcuffs,â€ Morris said.
Expect Guy to either apologize or pack up his Ford Expedition to find another coaching gig. Maybe a JUCO in Montana is looking to hire?
