As you have probably heard by now, Pittsburgh head coach Michael Haywood was arrested Friday afternoon in South Bend and jailed on domestic battery charges.
He was still jailed as of late Friday night, and arraignment is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
Just a short while ago, Pittsburgh released a statement addressing the arrest of a coach they hired two weeks ago. Here’s the statement in its entirety:
“The University of Pittsburgh is aware of an alleged incident involving head football coach Michael Haywood today in South Bend, Indiana. The University expects the highest standards of conduct from its employees, including its coaches, and any breach of those standards is a very serious matter. The University will decline further comment until more complete information is available.”
