Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll weighed in Friday on defensive end Frank Clark‘s recent comments to a female writer.

Clark first offered Bleacher Report’s Natalie Weiner a job cleaning his fish tank in response to a critical article she wrote about him in 2015. He later issued an apology that was deemed unsatisfactory and followed it up the next day with a statement sent from within the Seahawks’ headquarters.

“Frank did not handle that real well,” Carroll said, according to Brady Henderson of ESPN Seattle. “I think he’s done a nice job to recognize and made a statement and an apology. I think he’s definitely learned from that.

“Sometimes that lesson for other people as well can be valuable and I’m hoping that Frank will do a nice job of communicating that to other guys in the locker room. So I’m glad that thing’s behind us.”

Clark, arrested in college for domestic abuse, can only hope this latest issue can be put behind him.
