"We are stunned by the news today of murder charges being filed against OKC Energy FC assistant coach Chris Spendlove. We are deeply saddened by the news of the incident and our hearts go out to the
family of the police officer who lost his life. We are also disheartened for Chris. As an assistant coach, he was always professional and conducted himself in a proper and respectful manner. …
Given the seriousness of the charges, we have made the decision to dismiss Chris from the organization."
