Pitt Fires New HC Michael Haywood after Arrested on Domestic Violence Charge

Couldn’t even get one day into the New Year, without a Smarten Up Nas incident taking place.

Mike Haywood just got the job at the University of Pittsburgh and if these charges are true he will be in the unemployment line.

Here are the details:

At 2:26 p.m., county police received a 911 call from a woman with whom Haywood has a 21-month-old son. The woman said Haywood became angry when she tried to leave with the boy, and put her in a choke-hold, then pushed her, police said.

After county police officer Diana Landry interviewed the woman and observed red marks on her neck, back and arms, she arrested Haywood on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence battery.

Haywood was held without bond Friday night in the county jail. In domestic violence cases, the defendant must remain in jail without bond until an arraignment before a judge.

Because of the weekend, that means Haywood will be in jail until at least his 1:30 p.m. Monday arraignment, said county police Assistant Chief William Redman.

Bringing in the new year by choking the mother of your 21 month old son?

I don’t know if this is the type of guy I would want to send my kid to play football for.  If this is true. Pittsburgh has to think is this the right individual to be leading their football team.


Haywood has just been fired.
