WVU head basketball Coach Huggins says he regrets live radio broadcast remarks
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WSAZ) - West Virginia University head basketball Coach Bob Huggins issued a statement Monday evening about something he said he regretted saying on a live radio broadcast in Cincinnati.
Mountaineer Athletics issued the following statement from Huggins:
“Earlier today on a Cincinnati radio program, I was asked about the rivalry between my former employer, the University of Cincinnati, and its crosstown rival, Xavier University. During the conversation, I used a completely insensitive and abhorrent phrase that there is simply no excuse for —and I won’t try to make one here. I deeply apologize to the individuals I have offended, as well as to the Xavier University community, the University of Cincinnati and West Virginia University. As I have shared with my players over my 40 years of coaching, there are consequences for our words and actions, and I will fully accept any coming my way. I am ashamed and embarrassed and heartbroken for those I have hurt. I must do better, and I will.”
