Pitt issues statement on Haywood arrest


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. ┬áHere’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.”

    Do you think James Willis gives Haywood a call now?

    Their statement says it all, they are going to can him. And they don’t have the $ to get a high profile coach, I don’t understand why they didn’t take a serious look at Bradley at Penn State.

    Doesn’t Pitt have a boxing team ?

    Ditch this guy and hire someone we actually heard of like Mike Leach.

    This will be the shortest tenure as a Head Coach in NCAA Football History.

    Sad thing is the human tragedy behind it. We see this far, far too often these days.

    Although I hate to admit it pajoe, I agree the Bradley makes sense at Pitt. Also, word is that he is growing tired of waiting for the geriatric wonder to kick, and then have PSU place his baby boy at the podium. But Pederson has screwed this from the beginning so why would we expect anything more.

    P.S. and Leach makes no sense at Pitt, he’s is a great offensive mind but he’s a boob. And hopefully we are in the process of getting rid one of those already.

    If Pitt keeps him, they are sending a terrible message o the kids. He should have known to stay out of situations that can get him arrested.

    So, is this the shortest span a college coach has been employed by a team?
