Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy has released a formal apology video to OSU players on Monday.

This video is in response to players' concerns over Gundy's decision to wear a One America News t-shirt in a fishing trip last week.

"I had a great meeting with our team today," Gundy said. "Our players expressed their feelings as individuals and team members. They helped me see through their eyes how the t-shirt effected their hearts. Once I learned how that network felt about Black Lives Matter, I was disgusted and knew that it was completely unacceptable to me. I want to apologize to all members of our team, former players, and their families for the pain and discomfort that has been caused over the last two days. Black Lives Matter to me and our players matter to me. These meetings with our players have been eye opening to me and they will result in positive changes for Oklahoma State football. I sincerely hope that the Oklahoma State family near and far will accept my humble apology as we move forward."
