Recounting the incident during an interview Wednesday night with The Oklahoman, Williams told the newspaper that he doesn't want Gundy to be fired, but he does want an apology and to see "some growth."

"I remember that it was the first time that the University of Colorado beat Oklahoma State while I was there," Williams told The Oklahoman on Wednesday night. "It was a big win. It really was a big win. "And I remember Mike Gundy called me the N-word. That's what I remember."

Oklahoma State declined to comment Wednesday when contacted by The Oklahoman, and Gundy has not addressed Williams' latest allegation.

Williams, an All-American and a Butkus Award winner at Colorado and a nine-year NFL veteran, told The Oklahoman that he had not seen Gundy's 1989 denial until Wednesday night.

"I want an apology from him, and I want to see him have some growth," Williams told the newspaper. "If he denies that he said [that], I have at least 20 people who will vouch for what happened that day. "I'm a little upset, because after 31 years I finally saw the story published in your papers out in Oklahoma. That was the first time I saw some of the responses to what I said."

Gundy, 52, has come under fire recently after a photo posted to social media showed the Cowboys coach wearing a T-shirt from OAN (One America Network).
