Dan Campbell, Detroit Lions coach front-runner, made controversial anti-gay remark

Speaking at a pep rally called the "Aggie Bonfire" before a game against rival Texas in 1998, Campbell, a senior at the time, made an anti-gay remark in front of about 40,000 students, staff members and alumni, causing outrage from some students and professors, according to a media report at the time.

After expressing hatred for the Longhorns, Campbell said he was proud to attend a university where “men like women and women like men.”

A local newspaper published an apology from Campbell in the days after the event: “I offended some people, and I’m sorry for that. It was heat of the moment. It’s not necessarily that I directed it at anyone.”


oops

On it's own, this isn't disqualifying since it happened so long ago and people can learn and grow but what comes out after this and how he treated people since may be.

I have zero problem with this whether he's eventually the lions coach or ends up somewhere else. 22 years ago a young dumb and full of ... college football player said something stupid and offensive and later issued a public apology. In other news, water is wet.

I know my conduct and attitudes have grown and evolved over the last 22 years. If this is the only skeleton that comes out, it's a nothingburger.

Idk, he said something stupid 22 years ago, apologized for it, and now it’s being brought back up after he’s being considered for a hc.

But we know nothing about who he is and these things sometimes tend to snowball the more stories are revealed.

OR he grew up and this is a nothing burger

Right now, he gets the benefit or doubt unless more comes to light.

...because it gets the attention of those that support cancel culture. If it didn't elicit a reaction then the media wouldn't print.

I'd say it's much less of a concern than the skeleton that tumbled out of Matty Patty's closet.
