Ed Reed will not train a python cookman because negotiations fail

Ed Reed, a Super Bowl champion and a nine-time Pro Bowl selection with the Baltimore Ravens, announced Saturday that he will no longer be the head coach at Bethune-Cookman.

Reid was in tears during a 15-minute farewell in front of the players and parents.

“We were here trying to change things,” Reed said. “My vision of change, it’s probably moving too quickly for a lot of people. I’m not taking my name down, they said. They don’t want me here. They don’t want me here because I’m telling the truth.”

Reed too tweet an ad It detailed it, “After weeks of negotiations, I was informed that the university would neither ratify my contract nor enforce the agreement we had reached in principle, which contained provisions and resources to support student-athletes.

“I was committed to coaching and building a relationship with the university, the players, the community and the fans. It’s very disappointing that this isn’t going to happen,” Reid said.

Bethune-Cookman announced that the school and Reid had “concluded an agreement in principle…to be its 16th head football coach” on December 27. Its former head coach, Terry Sims, was fired in late November after going 2-9 in back-to-back seasons.

The decision to not certify Reed’s contract comes after the Pro Football Hall of Famer caused an uproar when he went on social media and complained that his office had not been cleaned prior to his arrival. Reid later apologized for the profanity-containing post and apologized for it again on Saturday.

He said, “I am a good man, not perfect.” “We all make mistakes, and I apologize for mine.”

Bethune-Cookman, a Black college in Daytona Beach, Florida, has won six MEAC championships since 2000 but struggled after joining the SWAC in 2021.

The program was hoping to achieve the same success that Jackson State had when it hired Deion Sanders as coach. Now in Colorado, Coach Prime called during his Saturday farewell and offered help and guidance.

“I know you don’t want to leave those kids,” said Sanders, who was briefly with Reid in Baltimore. “Sometimes in life you have to walk away.”

Reid, 44, has spent the past three seasons in a support staff role at his alma mater, Miami, most recently as a senior football advisor under head coach Mario Cristobal.
