HOUSTON — A white Texas school superintendent who posted online that “You can’t count on a black quarterback,” in reference to Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, has resigned.
Deshaun Watson said he’s dealt with racism before, so he’s “not worried” about comments made about him on Facebook by a school district superintendent.
In a letter Saturday to the Onalaska Independent School District board, Lynn Redden said his comment posted earlier in the week on the Houston Chronicle’s Facebook page was “wrong and inappropriate.”…
Redden had criticized Watson for letting the clock run down before completing a pass in a 20-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
Redden’s comment prompted the school board to convene a special meeting Saturday.
