GAINESVILLE - Remember Emily Austen, the former Rays sideline reporter who disappeared from Fox Sports Sun after some controversial comments?

She has resurfaced (temporarily) with a stop at the Florida Gators.

Austen tweeted Tuesday that she spoke to student-athletes at UF with a thank you to football coach Jim McElwain (and others):

 

It was Austen's first tweet since June.

"In 2016, I made a bad decision and my life took an unexpected turn," Austen tweeted. "Now I'm passionate about helping others avoid making a similar mistake."

That mistake was a 35-minute video with multiple controversial comments about minority groups, including Mexicans, Chinese people and "Jews in Boca."
