“As painful as it was to deal with Coach Gundy’s resignation from the program, it does not touch on the experience of the pain felt by a room full of young men whom I am responsible for protecting, leading and loving. There are some things I would like to address,” Venables said in Monday’s statement.

This is not acceptable. Period. Coach Gundy did the right thing by resigning. He knows our goals. of excellence and that coaches have a special responsibility to lead by example. He also knows that, while he will always be a part of the OU family, that his words affected many of us and did not represent not the principles of our university. Again, his resignation was the right thing to do, and we will move forward positively.
