Suspended Georgia Southern player apologizes after chugging beer on top of team bus
Georgia Southern nose tackle Gavin Adcock made his first public remarks since his indefinite suspension on Monday afternoon after a video surfaced on social media of him chugging a beer while standing atop the team’s bus while it was moving.
Adcock posted a note to his Twitter account apologizing for the incident.
“I want to reach out and express my deepest apology for my foolish actions on the bus this past Saturday,” he said. “I want to apologize to players/coaches present and before me who have paved the way for this great program and institution! What I did was very selfish and is not what we are about at Georgia Southern. The coaching staff and institution does not condone that type of behavior. For the remainder of my time here I will do everything in my power to reassure my love and commitment to this amazing place!!”
It has been an eventful 48 hours for the Eagles football program. On Sunday, following the team’s loss to Louisiana to fall to 1-3, head coach Chad Lunsford was fired. Kevin Whitley, the team’s cornerbacks coach, was named the interim head coach for the remainder of the year.
Georgia Southern faces Arkansas State on Saturday.
I love this place with a deep passion! Always Hail Southern!! GATA !!💙🦅 pic.twitter.com/tY3Zu5dssX
