The Kansas State football program has righted a wrong.
After initially denying wide receiver Corey Sutton his release, head coach Bill Snyder went on a highly-criticized rant where he revealed the pass catcher has failed two drug tests.
Fast forward 24 hours later, and the Wildcats have granted Sutton a full release from the program.
Sutton announced the news on social media:
Thank you to everyone who supported me, I am now released from Kansas State University.
— Corey Sutton (@coreysutton1997) June 2, 2017
Once Sutton made his release known, Snyder released a statement apologizing for his previous comments.
“I would like to apologize to Corey and his family for my remarks last night which included sensitive and private information,” Snyder said in a press release from the school. “I spoke out of line and for that I express a sincere regret for my comments.”
Sutton had a list of 35 schools when he asked for his release.
There is no word on where he will ultimately land, but it is good to see Kansas State doing the right thing — even if it was because of outside pressure.
