Division II GVSU Offensive Coordinator Wants Dinner With Hitler, Gets Suspended

Grand Valley State University’s new offensive coordinator as of January 20 may be looking for work.

Morris Berger was interviewed by the Grand Valley Lanthorn and was asked which three historical figures he would like to have dinner with.

“This is probably not going to get a good review, but I’m going to say Adolf Hitler,” Berger said in the interview. “It was obviously very sad and he had bad motives, but the way he was able to lead was second-to-none. How he rallied a group and a following, I want to know how he did that. Bad intentions of course, but you can’t deny he wasn’t a great leader.”

Berger is currently suspended while a thorough investigation is being conducted. A school’s statement says that his comments do not reflect the values of Grand Valley State University. GVSU is located in western Michigan.

Berger was only officially announced as offensive coordinator by the school on Jan. 20, after being hired away from Texas State. He had been on staff at Oklahoma State from 2017 to 2018 and was at Missouri before that.
