FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU football coach Gary Patterson has apologized for himself for repeating a racial slur when telling a player to stop using the slur in team meetings.

Patterson’s tweet came a day after school Chancellor Victor Boschini said the 20-year leader of TCU’s program had apologized for using the slur.

It happened during a confrontation with linebacker Dylan Jordan at practice.

Patterson confirmed he met with seniors and the team’s leadership council to discuss the incident.
