OSU football: Offensive coordinator Todd Monken apologizes for comments on OU, Landry Jones

FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: April 27, 2012

A day after his comments in an blog drew attention on Twitter, OSU offensive coordinator Todd Monken issued an apology.

“I want to apologize to Landry Jones and to the Oklahoma football program for using them as a specific example to illustrate a point concerning how quickly an injury to a key player can impact how a team plays,” Monken said.

“While speaking to a visiting member of the media about the importance of a quarterback's confidence and demeanor and about how quickly things can change in football, I made the mistake of making a specific reference to illustrate my point.”

Monken's apology came after the story on quoted him as saying, “It didn't take long when ol' (Ryan) Broyles wend down and (the Sooners) started running the dozer to think: ‘Do we have our guy? That didn't take long. Landry went from like, “I'm the man to all of a sudden, ‘I haven't thrown a touchdown pass, I'm fumbling it over my head at Oklahoma State. I gotta go back and see my quarterback guru.'”

Junior OU safety Tony Jefferson responded to line in the ESPN article via Twitter, saying “Hell nah he better be quiet.” A minute later, Jefferson tweeted: “Let me stop. It's too early in the off-season for me getting mad.”
