Bowling Green head coach Louis Orr woke up to some upsetting vandalism on his house on Sunday.

Reportedly, Orr, who is entering his sixth season as coach of the Falcons, found the words “white power” and a swastika written on the outside of his home in chalk. Bowling Green police are investigating the incident, according to the Toledo Blade.

Orr declined comment through a spokesperson. The writing was discovered at 10 a.m. Sunday.

Ignorance is an awful thing. While it’s still unclear what the motives were, I can’t — or at least, hope — believe Orr’s job as coach of BGSU is the reason for it. He’s 176-162 in his five seasons at the helm. Whether it is or not, it’s tragic that we as a collective people haven’t risen above stuff like this.

Whatever the reason, let’s hope the vandals are caught.

Orr is an excellent coach, who did a great job at Seton Hall, although they confusedly fired him. As for this incident, I can't understand why such bigoted things happen to such a successful person that's wonderful to his profession.
