Do you remember that video of Ed Reed going nuts after accepting the head coaching job at Bethune-Cookman University? He showed up trying to help the school, by cleaning the facility, and now Ed Reed is not taking the job.
Ed Reed released this statement:
“Bethune Cookman University has been working with my legal team to craft contract terms with the language and resources we knew were needed to build a successful football program,” Reed said in a statement. “It’s my desire to not only coach football, but to be an agent of change that most people just talk about being. However, after weeks of negotiations I’ve been informed that the University won’t be ratifying my contract and won’t make good on the agreement we had in principle, which had provisions and resources best needed to support the student athletes. I was committed to coaching and cultivating a relationship with the University, players, community and the fans. It’s extremely disappointing this won’t be happening.”
This is a crazy turn of events. I am not shocked by this decision, the school better call Raymond Woodie, he would be willing to change the school’s atmosphere.
