Florida International issues apology after beach incident


The Florida International football team apparently wrapped up their summer conditioning program Friday morning and celebrated with a feast on a local beach.

It was supposed to be an event filled with good food, plenty of laughter, and great times under the sun. And everything was going smoothly until some of the Panthers players decided to shed their workout clothes in a public area for all to see.

Well, that incident inspired the following press release from head coach Ron Turner:

Early this morning, our football team had a workout and barbecue on Crandon Park Beach to conclude our summer conditioning program under the supervision of our strength and conditioning staff. Following the workout, some of our athletes went to rinse off at a designated public shower area and a few of them made a poor decision and changed their clothes in public. I want to apologize to the community and anyone who was at the beach this morning for this unfortunate incident. We are committed to helping our student athletes grow as gentlemen while preparing them for their careers. We are looking into this incident, and if appropriate, will take disciplinary action.

For the record, no charges have been filed against any of the players.
