Todd Monken responds to Landry Jones quote

Gina Mizell Published: April 27, 2012

A comment Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Todd Monken made in an ESPN.com story about the Cowboys’ quarterback competition created some controversy Thursday–because the comment was made about Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones.

“It didn’t take long when ol’ (Ryan) Broyles went 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.’”

Monken responded to the story on Friday.

“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. 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.”
