Former Georgia assistant Mike Ekeler didn’t like how his comments about his time in Athens were perceived.
Ekeler used profanity to describe his experience on the Georgia staff in an interview with the North Texas Daily. After his comments were published, he tweeted that he was misquoted. He said he was speaking more generally about any coaching job.
Miss quoted. I said, you can work at Georgia, USC, Nebraska, LSU etc and if you work with bad people it stinks. Loved working for CMR.

Ekeler told the North Texas Daily’s Clay Massey that he likes his current job at UNT because of the people with whom he is working. He contrasted that with the following comment:
“I’ve worked at some of the greatest schools history-wise in the game,” Ekeler said. “But what it boils down to is people. You can be at the University of Georgia and be miserable if you’re working with shitty people. I really enjoy my work environment and the players here (at UNT).”
