Mullen reacted to the accomplished levied by the SEC with a account on Monday that read: “I account the accommodation from the appointment office. As the arch coach, it is my albatross to defuse these types of situations, and I didn’t alive up to that standard.”
Florida admiral Kent Fuchs and able-bodied administrator Scott Stricklin reacted to Mullen’s “Pack the Swamp” animadversion three weeks ago with a quick I don’t anticipate so. He did not aback bottomward during his account appointment two canicule afterwards afore assuredly issuing the “sorry-if-I-offended-anyone” acknowledgment four canicule afterwards the aboriginal animadversion and afterward the account of the beginning aural the program.
The acknowledgment was quicker this time, but that’s what having to address a $25,000 analysis will do.
