‘Jesus Christ Should Be in the Center of Our Huddle:’ Coach Criticized for Endorsing Christianity

Jones ssSTORRS, Conn. – A football coach at the University of Connecticut (UConn) has come under fire for telling a local newspaper that his football strategies include his belief that “Jesus Christ should be in the center of our huddle.” Ernest Jones was recently introduced as the assistant football coach for UConn, and was interviewed by the Hartford Courant about his new position. “Just because you come to the University of Connecticut doesn’t mean you won’t have the opportunity to pursue your faith,” Jones told the newspaper. “No, you’re going to be able to come here and love the God that you love. So we provide opportunities for them to grown spiritually in our community.” “We’re going to make sure they understand that Jesus Christ should be in the center of our huddle, that that’s something that is important,” he avised. “If you want to be successful and you want to win [and] get championships, then you better understand that this didn’t happen because of you. This happened of our Lord and Savior.” However, after the article was published, a number of readers complained about Jones’ statement and brought the matter to the attention of university president Susan Herbst. The Courant then published a letter from Herbst in which she took issue with Jones’ comments because she deemed them to be an endorsement of Christianity. More
