Those who know or know of Kyle Whittingham are already very aware that the Utah head coach is as classy an individual as there is in the college coaching game. The latest example of said classiness?
During Utah’s loss to Oregon Saturday night, Ducks tight end Pharaoh Brown sustained a significant and season-ending leg injury. Significant enough, in fact, that Brown underwent surgery almost immediately to repair the damage and remains, as of Tuesday morning, in a Salt Lake City hospital.
During his press conference Monday, Whittingham stated that he would go to the hospital a second time to try to see the injured player. And, yes, that’s right — Whittingham had already attempted to see Brown but, due to bad timing, couldn’t connect.
“I went over (Sunday), but he was in surgery, so I timed it not real good,” Whittingham said. “But he’s here (in Salt Lake City) and I’ll get over there at some point, if not today, the next couple of days.”
Bravo, Coach Whittingham. Bravo.
