MTSU issues apologies from coach, linebacker
Middle Tennessee has issued statements from coach Rick
Stockstill and linebacker Roderic Blunt apologizing for Blunt’s
actions in the Armed Forces Bowl.
Blunt was ejected from Middle Tennessee’s 24-6 loss to Navy on
Monday after receiving two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties.
Stockstill said Tuesday in a statement that ”I have strived to
run a first-class program and I do not condone this type of play.”
Stockstill said he called Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo and
quarterback Keenan Reynolds plus Armed Forces Bowl executive
director Brant Ringler to apologize.
Blunt apologized to Reynolds, Navy and his own teammates and
coaches. Blunt said ”it was my last college game and emotions were
at an all-time high. But there is still no excuse for my actions
and know this is not a reflection of Blue Raider football.”
