A Kentucky high school basketball coach discovered a racial slur drawn on his back windshield after a game last week.

Coach Erik Daniels, who once played for the University of Kentucky Wildcats but now coaches a local high school girls' basketball team, loaded his four kids into his car after coaching the girls' basketball game at Woodford County High School on Friday.

Before taking off, he noticed the markings, according to the Lexington Herald

"I asked my children if they could recognize what it said and they looked at it. It was the N-word," Daniels said.

The father of four, who had just become the head coach of the girls' basketball team, made a Facebook post about the incident, calling out the suspect.

 “In 2020 we still have cowards doing things like this. But the funny thing is that we laughed about it because with me playing basketball all over the world this happened a lot. I've been called a n***er in several languages so it doesn't bother me at all,” the post read. “I'll keep doing God's work by educating these kids and preparing them for life.”

The school district released a statement addressing the situation. 

“As we prepare to return to school this Monday, we are deeply saddened and concerned by an unfortunate incident that occurred Friday evening in our district,” the district said in a post on social media. “At the conclusion of last night’s home girls’ basketball game, a racial slur was found written in the moisture on a window of the vehicle belonging to our girls’ head basketball coach (and teacher at WCHS).”

"Law enforcement has been informed and an investigation has already begun including a review of security camera footage; we are optimistic the footage will provide valuable information. This incident in no way reflects the values and mission of Woodford County Public Schools, and appropriate action will be taken upon a positive identification of the individual," the statement continued.

The footage, when reviewed, reveled that the racist doodler was a student, but the district has yet to release their name. Although school administrators said on Monday that swift and appropriate action has been taken, the student's punishments has not been revealed, WKYT reports

"Words mean something, and when you use certain types of words, they cause harm to the community as a whole," Versailles Police Assistant Chief Rob Young said.

Scott Hawkins, superintendent of Woodford County schools, said Daniels handled the situation with a “tremendous amount of grace and a tremendous amount of character.”

Just a few miles away in Lexington, an irate Pizza Hut delivery driver told a group of friends they needed to be hung for accidentally leaving a 9-cent tip.
