As a person of color I find this extremely offensive and borderline racist. Reggie got the job on his merits, not his skin color. African American coaches are fired all the time, and often don’t get the same second chances that white coaches get.

This shouldn’t be a race issue. Shame on you for trying to make it on

It shouldn’t be but it is! If you don’t think that he gets a longer leash because he’s the first black head coach in school history and the political climate today you are kidding yourself!

Turn off Fox News and give me a break.

In three years he’s 35-20 in conference. That’s why he wasn’t fired. That’s one of the best three year stretches in recent memory. He recruited the freshmen of the year. He’s won the conference coach of the year. All in less then three years. And this year they have a real chance to win the maac tournament. Saying the only reason he’s still coach shows your true colors...

Maybe your dislike of him is because he’s African American

Griffin Mike is right. Reggie had a pretty good record at UB. He developed players and turned a doormat program into a contender. He was fired. To suggest that he won’t be fired because of his race is despicable, and racist.
