COLLEGE STATION – Texas A&M offensive line coach Jim Turner, and special teams coordinator Jeff Banks were suspended by head coach Kevin Sumlin for two weeks without pay and ordered to complete 20 hours of community service for their role in an inappropriate presentation at Chalk Talk on Wednesday, the school announced Friday.
A series of inappropriate and misogynistic slides in a presentation to a group of about 700 women gathered for the school’s annual Chalk Talk event was the spark for the suspension. The slides, part of a presentation put on by Turner and Banks, were degrading to women and some featured sexual innuendos.
“There is absolutely no place in our program or in our University community for inappropriate conduct or degrading comments towards women, or anyone, regardless of intent,” Sumlin said in a statement.
