Jack Del Rio: Comments, What Did He Say, Fined Or Fired, Salary
Commanders head coach Ron Rivera held a press conference Tuesday morning before the team opened its three-day mandatory minicamp, and the $100,000 fine issued to defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio last week was the first topic of conversation.
Rivera begins the press conference by discussing his conversation with Del Rio about the coordinator’s tweet, calling the January 6 attack on the Capitol “dust” and comparing it to the response to the killing of George Floyd in 2020 Went.
Rivera said he spoke to Del Rio last week and again on Tuesday morning.
What did he say:
Just more than one week ago Washington Commanders defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio tweeted what he dubbed an “honest question” while comparing the social uprising following the murder of George Floyd to the actions taken by a group that had gathered at the Capitol building last January.
He declined to address the content of those conversations, but said the issue was not Del Rio’s ability to speak freely but the result of comments on the team.
Over the weekend Washington coach Ron Rivera issued a statement expressing his disappointment and disapproval of the comments, fined his defensive coordinator $100k, and Del Rio deleted his Twitter account.
