The Oklahoma Sooners football program announced shocking coaching news Sunday night.

Longtime Oklahoma assistant coach Cale Gundy, who had been with the program for more than two decades, announced his resignation.

Gundy took to Twitter, revealing he said a word during a team meeting that he should “never” say. The assistant coach explained that he was reading a distracted player’s iPad and said the word unintentionally.

Still, Gundy felt the need to step aside.

Oklahoma coach Brent Venables confirmed Sunday night that he sadly accepted Gundy’s resignation.

The college football world is still pretty shocked by the Sunday night news.

Gundy, the Oklahoma State head coach’s brother, had been an OU assistant since 1999. He was a Sooners player from 1990 to 1993.

Oklahoma has already decided on an interim replacement for Gundy’s position.

The 2022 college football season begins in less than a month.
