DeBerry on Hot Seat After Comments

Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry, 67, will have some explaining to do after saying the Falcons lost to No. 20 Texas Christian, 48-10, because the Horned Frogs have more black players who "can run very, very well." DeBerry told Denver television station KWGN: "It just seems to be that way, that Afro-American kids can run very, very well. That doesn't mean that Caucasian kids and other descents can't run, but it's very obvious to me they run extremely well." Academy officials said they were aware of the remarks and plan to investigate.
