Birmingham, AL (WIAT) Garrick McGee said he made a mistake this past week regarding the dismissal of the Blazers leading returning receiver, Jackie Williams.
Not the dismissal itself, but the way he described it.
“When I released that Jackie was no longer with the team I said it was an undisclosed reason” McGee said. “That gave everyone an opportunity to speculate what it could be and that wasn’t really fair to the kid….I want to clear it up that kid has not gotten into any trouble around here.”
He went on to say the “Culture” needed to change at UAB, and that was the main reason for the dismissal of Williams.
