“I would just like to see the coaches get the guys cleaned up and not looking like Florida State and Miami guys," Petersen told the Tribune-Democrat. He said he didn’t intend for his letter to have racist undertones.


“It wasn’t threatening or anything," Petersen explained. "I was just disgruntled about some of the hairdos that we’re seeing."


"You think of Penn State as a bunch of clean-cut guys," Petersen added. "And you do see so many who are clean cut. But the tattoos and the hair—there are a lot of guys with hair coming down their backs and it just looks awful. And it’s the same for the NFL and NBA, too.”

Penn State tweeted about the letter on Monday evening.
