    Here’s an article that captures the gist of it:

    Wells, who is white, had alleged he was fired in January 2010 because his recruiting of white players upset alumni and administrators of the mostly black college.

    SSU countered that he was let go for sloppy records and failing to follow instructions.

    The legal case has been settled, but would you want this man as your party’s presidential nominee? I wouldn’t.

    This guy is dumb as a box of rocks. He sued because he new the College’s insurance would seetle knowing it costs more to litigate. He taks the job at a historial black college, then begins a process of replacing their football team with all white players. He should have been sued. I frankly do not see how his lack of morals and how his personal conduct will be accepted by the religious Constitution Party, oh wait, I know, he will lie. By the way, what are his qualifications to be President anyway? He doesn’t appear to be qualified to run a Quickie-Mart.

    FWIW, his career winning percentage at SSU was .318 – 7 and 15 in two seasons. Of course, he took over a broken program. He had a decent season in 2008 (5-7) but the team quickly regressed to where he found them, going 2-8 in 2009. I don’t know why he was fired and it may not have been related to his record. My alma mater (Manchester College) has held on to some coaches with horrible records because they were good guys who ran a clean program and treated the kids properly.

    My family has lived near SSU for years. Wells was a blow hard. It is not an accident that he has not coached since. The $200+K settlement he extorted from SSU will provide a living for only so long, you can bet he is paying himself a salary from contributions to his “campaign” as well.

    “The legal case has been settled, but would you want this man as your party’s presidential nominee? I wouldn’t.”

    Whether I would want him as the nominee of my party depends on where he stands on the issues, but the fact that he sued SSU for reverse discrimination doesn’t bother me except to the degree that I have some inherent skepticism toward people who file lawsuits. (Not all lawsuits are illegitimate, of course, but enough are to warrant skepticism.) I certainly don’t think the whole fiasco makes him “disgraced” although it might reflect on his leadership ability and people skills. I would like to know more details.

    If this guy is being solicited by Ricardo Davis, then this Robby Wells is probably on the same level as Mr. Davis when it comes to the subject of religion.

    Paulie @11, I know Red believes in reverse racism (Red, sorry to talk about you in the third person). I doubt he supports using it as an excuse to sue someone who fired you because you did a crappy job at your job. Social conservatives tend to embrace the idea of personal responsibility — something Wells clearly lacks. That’s why I said I think he’s a poor fit for any political party.

    “. I doubt he supports using it as an excuse to sue someone who fired you because you did a crappy job at your job. ”

    Well your link says “SSU countered that he was let go for sloppy records and failing to follow instructions.”

    This may or may not be true (that he actually had sloppy record keeping), do you know if it is or not? I don’t.

    As for not following instructions, what instructions?

  9. Jeremy C. Young

    Rob, do you really expect the school to produce the details? They keep those private to protect sloppy workers like Wells.

    Regardless of why he was fired, claiming reverse racism as an excuse makes Wells a whiner to the right and a racist to the left. In neither case does he make a positive impression.

    do you really expect the school to produce the details? They keep those private to protect sloppy workers like Wells.

    You are assuming the school’s claims in defense against the lawsuit are accurate. They may be – or not. If the lawsuit had merit, I’d expect them to offer some such other reason why he was fired. If it didn’t, same thing.

    Regardless of why he was fired, claiming reverse racism as an excuse makes Wells a whiner to the right and a racist to the left. In neither case does he make a positive impression.

    Red can of course correct me, but I don’t think his segment of the right sees Wells and others with such lawsuits as whiners.

    “claiming reverse racism as an excuse makes Wells … a racist to the left.”

    Really? Claiming reverse discrimination, which very well might be true, automatically makes a person a racist to the left? Then if that is true, the left are a bunch of mindless ideologues on the subject of race. That would serve to confirm the charge that the whole Cultural Marxist paradigm of what is good for the goose is not good for the gander is really just anti-white.

    That said, filing a lawsuit does raise the suspicion of whining. I hate to say that categorically because there are times when a lawsuit might be righteously justified. That’s why I would want to know more.

    “Red can of course correct me, but I don’t think his segment of the right sees Wells and others with such lawsuits as whiners.”

    It’s complicated. I think charges of reverse discrimination often have merit, but I have some skepticism about seeking redress in the courts. I think such victims should generally preferably either move on or air their grievances/charges publicly. But I don’t want to dogmatically rule out lawsuits.

    Does anyone have an official list of the candidates for the Constitution Party nomination?

  14. William Saturn

    Yes, I’ve seen that, but I’m wondering where the information came from. What is the official source?

  15. citizen1

    Wells sought out Davis and has met with him. Wells has been contacting Constitution Party state chairman to discuss the possibility of running with the CP.

    “I expect to se Wells on late night Cable Access TV selling swamp land as prime real estate.”

    Not much swamp land in Georgia.
