Redden’s position came under fire when he made a public comment on the Houston Chronicle‘s Facebook page criticizing Watson’s play following the Texans 20-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Redden wrote,, “That may have been the most inept quarterback decision I’ve seen in the NFL,” and “When you need precision decision making you can’t count on a black quarterback.”
The Onalaska ISD wrote on their Faceoobk page, “Onalaska ISD regrets that an inappropriate comment has been attributed to the District’s Superintendent. The OISD does not condone negative comments or actions against any race. The District values every individual and therefore the District will take the appropriate measures to address the situation expeditiously and completely.”
