Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy apologizes for comments on coronavirus response

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy on Saturday apologized for comments he made last week during a teleconference in which he talked about the national and state responses to the coronavirus pandemic.

Gundy had said his goal was to return to the football building on May 1 because he hoped that tests for COVID-19 would be available in a few weeks to clear both employees and players -- a proposed timetable the university and its athletic director quickly disputed.

"I have been made aware that comments from my press conference have offended some," Gundy said in a prepared statement.
