(AP) – In a story that has gone viral over the Internet, Lauderdale High School head coach Bob Grisham was suspended after one of his players surreptitiously taped a locker-room rant in which the Alabama coach ripped Michelle Obama and the Obama Administration, and made some very politically incorrect remarks about gays.

Here’s a link to the original story, and here’s the transcript of the rant that landed the popular coach in hot water:

Grisham: Like those lunches — you get 600-calorie lunches — you know who’s behind that?

Different voice: Michelle Obama

Grisham: Fat butt Michelle Obama

(Giggling in background)

Grisham: And look … look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight.

Different voice: Big fat gorilla


Grisham: I’m serious. Y’all, our country is, is, is going in the wrong direction.

Different voice: It’s going straight to hell.

Grisham: You’d better be aware of it. And people running around like, oh it’ll get better, it’ll get better. No, it ain’t gone get no better until things change. I can give you example after example of that, but I don’t want to use any local names to give you examples. Things won’t get better until there’s a change in some areas and stuff. And you know what his platform was? Change. We’re gonna change. We’re all …aw it’s OK …for …and …y’all can get pissed off at me or not. You can go tell the principal, you can call the superintendent and tell her. I don’t believe in queers, I don’t like queers. I don’t…I don’t hate them as a person but what they do is wrong, it’s an abomination against God. I don’t like being around queers.

Well, what a difference a suspension makes. Coach Grisham returned to Lauderdale High this week, seeming somewhat humbled by his suspension and pay-cut. Still not having quite learned his lesson about not allowing players to bring cellphones into the locker room, Grisham was yet again taped, this time giving his players a pre-game pep talk that reflected his new attitude after having signed a consent decree with the school district.

In the audio recording, although the coach repeatedly struggles to keep his language clean and slur-free, it appears as though he has definitely turned over a new leaf politically. But the speech, which appeared to leave the players in stunned silence, worried some who know the coach well.

“It didn’t seem like the Coach Grisham we knew,” linebacker DeWallace Stone told the AP. “I mean, it was him, but something had changed. I don’t know…it was just weird.”

“I kept wondering what they did to him. I mean, there was guys in black suits and earpieces standing in the doorway, watching him while he spoke,” running back Clarion Turrell told the AP. “The Coach Grisham who came back today, he ain’t the same man.”

Below is the full audio of Grisham’s “comeback” speech. Listen and judge for yourself if the embattled coach has indeed turned over a new leaf:
