Texas school superintendent resigns after posting racist comment about Deshaun Watson

Texas School Superintendent Resigns After Making Racist Comment About Deshaun Watson

He made the comment in reference to a poor throw by Watson toward the end of the game.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien on Wednesday blasted a Texas school superintendent after the official criticized quarterback Deshaun Watson in a racially tinged social media comment, saying "you can't count on a black quarterback".

Redden thought he was making a private comment and deleted it when he realized it was public.

Lynn Redden, formerly of the Onalaska Independent School District, made his remarks shortly after the Texans lost Sunday to the Titans, 20-17.

Lynn Redden, superintendent for the Onalaska Independent School District, submitted his resignation letter to the Board of Trustees during a special meeting held Saturday that was meant to discuss possible penalties for the educator.

"I don't think he needs to be in that position he's in", said Jeremy Watts, a parent and firefighter, told ABC 13.

"My resignation as the Superintendent and as an employee of the Onalaska Independent School District is tendered, subject to, and in accordance with, the terms, conditions and provisions of that certain Voluntary Separation Agreement between the Onalaska Independent School District and me effective the 22nd day of September, 2018".

"That may have been the most inept quarterback decision I've seen in the NFL", Redden wrote. He said he was referring to the "limited success" black National Football League quarterbacks have had in the NFL.

"The OISD does not condone negative comments or actions toward any race". Redden referenced him in his letter, recognizing that Watson did not take the opportunity to belittle the superintendent but instead chose "peace and positivity".

Redden received blistering criticism for his remarks, but none really from Watson, who said, "I'm all about love so I don't focus on none of that, I love all people", according to The Associated Press. "I worry about me, so I'm not anxious about what he had to say", Watson said. Asked whether he had experienced racism as a quarterback, Watson replied, "Of course". "We didn't have any timeouts, and they guarded the sideline very well".

"That's just everyday life, I guess", he said. "But I felt like I wasted about a minute and a half responding to that B.S". I'm all about love, so I don't focus on any of that.
