NFL Commish "Not Proud" of Swearing

Roger Goodell had to see this coming.

He’s “not proud” of the language used by New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan in HBO’s recently finished hit show, Hard Knocks.

“Obviously, at times, you’re going to get language that’s not appropriate for all ages,” he told Mike and Mike Wednesday morning. “It’s something that we’re not proud of, but it’s a reality of what’s happening in those camps.”

Goodell won’t penalize Ryan, however. Wait, NFL coaches swear? We’re shocked.

Tony Dungy previously criticized Ryan after which the Jets coach responded and then the pair cleared the air with a “man-to-man” chat.

This isn’t the first time swearing and coached have appeared in the newscycle together.

In 2009, Oklahoma St. basketball coach Travis Ford publicly apologized for a profanity-laced tirade. A video of former Texas Tech head Mike Leach circulated around the Internet in early 2010. (Leach had already been fired, albeit after a player complained he was “forced to stand in a small, dark closet while he was suffering a concussion.”) And at least one source thinks, jokingly, that Oregon State assistant Mike Cavanaugh would be a perfect fit for the Jets because of his propensity to dish out four-letter words.
