Current head coach of the Calgary Flames, Bill Peters, has been at the center of controversy since players made allegations about him using racist language and being physically abuse. On Wednesday Peters wrote a letter to Flames’ general manager Brad Treliving.
In his letter, Peters does not resign but instead lays out his side of the story — wherein he allegedly used the ‘N’ word while speaking to former player Akim Aliu. Peters apologizes for his actions and acknowledges the harm they caused. But the letter does not mention Aliu by name, and it remains unclear if Peters has apologized to Aliu directly.
The letter also does not mention the corroborated accounts of physical abuse against Michal Jordan and another unnamed player.
