Gary Pinkel, along with his assistant coaches, posed with players of the Missouri football team as Pinkel tweeted a photo this morning.

“The Mizzou Family stands as one. We are united. We are behind our players.”

This is the first public response from Coach Pinkel after black football players at the University of Missouri banded together vowing to not participate in any practices or games until University of Missouri System president Tim Wolfe resigns or is terminated.
