Chris Rix, former Florida State Seminoles quarterback and current college football insider for Fox Sports, went on Jay Mohr's radio show yesterday and gay-baited his former teammate, Darnell Dockett, who currently plays defensive end for the Arizona Cardinals. Things get started at the 2:42 mark of the audio clip below, when Mohr asks Rix if Dockett—who isn't shy about speaking his mind—has always been so boisterous.
While responding, Rix commented that, "There was always jokes about Darnell, and what his preference was in college, if I might. Because there was a few incidents of him hanging out with some dudes in the Union and some other stuff." Mohr goes on to ask if other guys ever made fun of Dockett's sexuality to his face, to which Rix replies, "Yes, they did. And he would get defensive at times, as most guys would. But let's just say that there were a few stories of 'Why is Darnell hanging out at this guy's house or this guy's dorm room?'"
Today, Rix tried to apologize:
@ddockett Apologize about radio show yesterday Dock! Convo was about you, KWebb & GJones..I let it go somewhere it shouldn't have. My bad DD— Chris Rix (@CoachRix) February 7, 2013
But Dockett is having none of it (his tweets have since been deleted):

Those are harsh words, but Rix seems to be letting them bounce right off him. He's at peace with being an asshole:
1 thing you can control about apologizing to someone: Doing it. // 1 thing you can't control: whether they accept it.— Chris Rix (@CoachRix) February 7, 2013
