Texas Tech suspends coach

- — Cindy Boren

Texas Tech suspended Coach Mark Adams for making “an inappropri­ate, unacceptab­le, and racially insensitiv­e comment” last week, the school announced.

Kirby Hocutt, Texas Tech’s director of athletics, on Friday became aware of an instance in which Adams encouraged a player to “be more receptive to coaching and referenced Bible verses about workers, teachers, parents, and slaves serving their masters,” the school said.
