Texas Tech men’s basketball coach Mark Adams has been suspended by the school. We do not know how long he will be suspended.

The Red Raiders begin their conference tournament on Wednesday. Adams allegedly said a “racially insensitive” comment to a player.

The player felt disrespected and got his coach suspended. Adams reportedly was quoting scripture from the Bible that led to his suspension.

The Bible verse that he told one of the players was “that there is always a master and a servant.”

“I was quoting the scripture,” Adams told Stadium. “It was a private conversation about coaching and when you have a job, and being coachable. I said that in the bible that Jesus talks about how we all have bosses, and we all are servants. I was quoting the bible about that.”

The Stadium, a news outlet, is reporting that the parents of the student, who was upset from the conversation, reported it to the Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt last week. Adams was reprimanded.

However, the school has announced that they will investigate the further. Adams has not apologized for the conversation, according to Stadium.

Adams, who is in his second full season with the Red Raiders as their head coach, allegedly spit on a player earlier this season. He is also being investigated for that incident.

At this time, the school has not made an announcement on whether or not he will face punishment from the allegation.
