Grizzlies coach vows to be vocal against Confederate monuments

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale has been outspoken against Confederate monuments.

Tuesday, the Grizzlies introduced their newest players at FedExForum. During the press conference, Fizdale was asked about his campaign against the monuments.

"I won't let up on it until we get our city where it should be," Fizdale said, "I know a lot of people I'll probably receive that disagree with me. I just felt in my heart what's right for our city is to get rid of, out of public view, things that remind a big chunk of our population in our city of horrible things."

Fizdale said he will continue to speak up until the statues are removed.
