PITT fires brand new HC

Haywood was arrested Friday on a domestic violence charge. He was released on bond Saturday.


Pitt has fired new football coach Mike Haywood, the school announced on Saturday.

University of Pittsburgh chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg issued a statement on the decision.

"After careful consideration of recent events, the University of Pittsburgh has dismissed Michael Haywood as its head football coach, effective immediately. He was advised of that action this afternoon.

"To be clear, the University's decision is not tied to any expectation with respect to the terms on which the legal proceeding now pending in Indiana might ultimately be concluded. Instead, it reflects a strong belief that moving forward with Mr. Haywood as our head coach is not possible under the existing circumstances.

"This is a matter of real regret for the many people at Pitt who had looked forward to working with him. However, head coaches are among the University's most visible representatives and are expected to maintain high standards of personal conduct and to avoid situations that might reflect negatively on the University.

"We will immediately re-open our search for a head football coach, expanding the process to include a larger pool of candidates. Our goal is to move swiftly, but prudently, to find the right person to successfully lead the Pitt football program for what we hope will be an extended period of time."

I thought Wanny should go but Pitt has handled this horribly. The best they can do is Mike Haywood and two weeks later he's in Cell Block 9?

On a side note: I wondered if he used his one phone call to call a recruit. Hey if you were the recruit you'd feel pretty special if you were the one guy he called from jail, wouldn't you? haha.
