Men’s Basketball Coach at Texas Tech Suspended Over Slavery Remarks

The university stated on Sunday that it had suspended men’s basketball coach Mark Adams after he referred to Bible texts about servants obeying their masters in a conversation with an athlete. The school condemned Adams’ remark as “inappropriate, disrespectful, and racially offensive” in a statement. Adams eventually apologized to the squad, but the player involved was not identified. The event reached the school’s sports director on Friday, who formally reprimanded Adams before finally suspending him. Now, Adams must undergo a review of his past dealings with players and employees.
