NORMAN, Okla. — Coaches and players who worked with longtime Oklahoma football assistant coach Cale Gundy posted reactions on social media following Gundy's sudden resignation on Sunday night.

Gundy said his resignation followed an incident in which he read a word he says "that I should never, under any circumstance have uttered" on a player's iPad during a recent film session. He'd worked with the football program for 23 seasons and played quarterback for the Sooners in the early 90s.

New OU head coach Brent Venables said Sunday night he accepted Gundy's resignation "with sadness."

Venables clarified Monday that he thinks Gundy made the right decision by resigning after he'd repeated the offensive word "multiple times."

Gundy was set to serve as one of the few sources of stability for OU as coaches, players and recruits ditched the program following Lincoln Riley's departure for USC. Former OU coach Bob Stoops worked with Gundy in some capacity throughout his tenure in Norman.

Former Sooners running back Joe Mixon released a lengthy statement of his own defending Gundy, attributing his success despite his own issues at OU to the now-former coach.

Former OU and NFL star Adrian Peterson posted a message of his own in support of Gundy on Monday afternoon.
