After citing an enslaved person and an enslaver from the Bible while speaking to a player, Mark Adams announced his resignation as the head coach of the Texas Tech men’s basketball team on Wednesday.
The school nonetheless referred to Adams’ comment as “inappropriate, disrespectful, and racially insulting” even though he had also been accused of spitting on a player and had rejected those claims.
The University Came To An Agreement
Adams’ bitter finish, however, took a turn for the better when he and the university came to an agreement under which he would get $4.1 million.
Adams will receive his money from the school and whatever incentives he received this year within 30 days. The parties to the settlement also agreed to hold each other harmless and to forego further legal action.
“Adams hereby agrees to the release of any and cxzall claims against TTU and Texas Tech University System and their employees, appointees, regents and representatives relating to his employment, whether known or unknown, as of the date of this Agreement and TTU agrees to release any and all claims against Adams,” the settlement reads.
“This Agreement is not, and shall not in any way be construed as an admission by the Parties of any wrongdoing whatsoever against each other or that the Parties violated any federal, state, or local law, which both Parties deny,” the agreement states.

The head coach explained Stadium on Sunday, stating that he had been quoting a scripture from the Bible when he informed one of the players that there is “always a master and a servant.” He continued by saying that he was merely “citing scripture” when speaking about a player’s ability to be coached.
“I said that in the Bible that Jesus talks about how we all have bosses, and we all are servants,” Adams told Stadium. “I was quoting the Bible about that.”
