Florida State star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson is among the players upset with first-year coach Mike Norvell’s comments to The Athletic in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.   

Norvell told The Athletic’s Tashan Reed that he “went back and forth individually with every player” last weekend after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was filmed kneeling on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes.  

Here is an excerpt of Norvell’s interview with The Athletic:

Wilson, who bypassed the NFL Draft this season to return to the Seminoles, took exception to that answer. Wilson said Norvell sent a generated text, and that players will not work out until further notice.  

Norvell was hired at Florida State after leading Memphis to a 12-1 record and a berth in the Cotton Bowl last season.  

Chauvin had a third-degree murder upgraded to a second-degree murder charge this week. The other three officers involved were charged with aiding and abetting a second-degree murder while committing a felony and with aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter with culpable negligence.
