Students at Bethune-Cookman University ask leaders to resume contract negotiations with Pro Football Hall of Famer Ed Reed.

The demonstration took place in the street in front of the university campus.

“We voice our concerns. We send emails all the time. There’s no response so that’s what it came to,” said Janaya Jones, vice president of the student body.

It came to that after the university broke off negotiations with prospective head football coach Ed Reid. This weekend, he said he couldn’t sign his contract because they couldn’t certify his details. Reid took to social media, using profanity to criticize physical conditions at UBC, claiming that even his desk was not clean. Reid later apologized but the university decided this weekend to reopen research.

As the students petition for Reid’s reinstatement, they say it’s time to speak up, too.

“We have a voice and we have to use that voice,” said Tyrone Franklin Jr., a student at the University of British Columbia.

Franklin is the quarterback on the football team, frustrated that Reed was dropped by the university.

“I think it should show what we go through as a student body. A lot of people have been saying this for a long time,” Franklin said.

“The first two months I was here, I was really sick because of the mold. Taking showers makes my skin break out because they don’t really care about the health of their students,” said Saida Subir, a student at the University of British Columbia.

Many at the protest say Reed spoke the truth about issues at school and they showed up, even walking down the street to re-hear everything. Ultimately, they say, this is what they want leaders to respond to.

“What’s the next step? How do we solve this? What can they do to improve it for all the students here?” Jones said.
