Star Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard has apparently settled his disagreement with his coach over his wearing a One America News Network T-shirt and will participate Tuesday in the Cowboys’ first day of voluntary, on-campus workouts.
Hubbard, the country’s leading rusher last year, expressed his disapproval Monday after seeing head coach Mike Gundy wear the shirt in a social media picture.
Hubbard retweeted a post with in which Gundy is seen wearing a shirt with the conservative news channel's logo on it, while on a fishing trip.
"I will not stand for this," Hubbard wrote in the post. "This is completely insensitive to everything going on in society, and it’s unacceptable. I will not be doing anything with Oklahoma State until things CHANGE," he declared.
However, the two met later in the day.
Gundy said he had met with some players and that he’s "looking forward to making some changes and it starts at the top with me."
Hubbard said he should have discussed the issue with his coach, not first tweet about it.
He also said that they will "focus on bringing change, and that's the most important thing," according to ESPN.com.
