Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that his remarks about racism and discrimination in the NFL were “wrong” and apologized, saying in a statement, “I should have been more clear and I am sorry.”
Fangio, now in his second season with the Broncos, held a 16-minute session with local media Tuesday that covered a variety of topics, including his outrage at George Floyd’s death while in police custody and his support for his players’ involvement in social justice protests.
