The University of Oklahoma will wait until after the season to begin seeking a replacement for baseball coach Larry Cochell, who resigned for using a racial slur while praising a black player.
Sunny Golloway, an assistant under Cochell, will act as interim head coach, associate athletic director Kenny Mossman said Monday.
ESPN reported Friday that before a Tuesday telecast of the Oklahoma-Wichita State game, Cochell, in describing a freshman outfielder, said "There's no n----- in him."
It also reported that he said in a separate interview: "There are honkies and white people and there are n------ and black people. (My player) is a good black kid."
What was he thinking? Now former coach Cochell has more time to think about other things, like the blockage in his arteries.
