On Friday, video of Oklahoma football star Joe Mixon viciously striking a woman during an incident in 2014 surfaced. The disturbing video led to immediate criticism directed at head coach Bob Stoops, athletic director Joe Castiglione and university president David Boren.
Those men saw the video of Mixon’s violent outburst and determined it was not a serious enough issue to boot the running back from the school.
Instead, Mixon simply was kept from team activities and given a redshirt season.
Now, people are calling for Stoops to be fired.
Stoops failed to uphold the university standard with such a light punishment and a poll on social media from FOX Sports analyst Clay Travis shows a majority of people believe Stoops should be held accountable for his weak stance on the issue.
As of the time of this writing, a whopping 78 percent of people voted that they would support firing Stoops.
It’s unlikely that Stoops will actually be fired, but he will have to speak out on his decision to allow his players to brutally punch a woman without repercussion sooner rather than later.
Of course, he could continue to hide from the issue and simply keep blocking anyone who asks for an explanation.
