Controversial Comments

Air Force Academy football coach Fisher DeBerry says black players are better runners and that's part of the reason why the Falcons lost this weekend to Texas Christian.

DeBerry's comments came today when he was asked about the Falcons' struggles this season. He said Texas Christian University had more black players than Air Force did and that they ran a lot faster.

An academy spokesman says senior leaders are aware of the reports about DeBerry's comments and they'll speak with the coach before commenting on them.
