Cam Newton’s coach in junior college is blasting as “false” the notion that a former Mississippi State quarterback was auction off Newton’s services to the highest bidder.
Brad Franchione, coach of Blinn Junior College, told CBSSports.com that he believes in the character of both Newton and his family.
“They are a humble, modest family,” Franchione said. “It’s unfortunate.”
Franchione also voiced hopes that the controversy won’t affect Newton’s pursuit of awards like the Heisman. That likely won’t be clear until the ceremonies in the December.
