Alex Oriakhi Sr. wants it known that he was not referring to UConn or Jim Calhoun in his controversial tweet on Monday, which I used in my story for the Thursday a.m. Courant.
I want to set things straight for him here.
”The words ” master-slavery mentality” was not about Coach Calhoun,” Mr. Oriakhi emailed me today. ”… I never mentioned anyone by name. The timing was disingenuous. I love coach Calhoun no matter what. I did what is best for my son.”
Alex Oriakhi Sr., who gave me permission to use his email, is a frequent commenter on this blog, and on our main website, and his comments and tweets can be critical, but, of course, a father is allowed to defend his son.
He said he was referring in this tweet to another coach at another school. … My bad here.
