Morehead State Suspends Coach Sean Woods One Game For Outburst (Video)
CBSSports.com is reporting that Morehead State head coach Sean Woods has been suspended one game for his outburst and berating of a player Wednesday night.
Woods will miss Monday’s game against Norfolk State.
Woods made a brief statement regarding the matter.
“My behavior during Wednesday night’s game was inappropriate and unacceptable. I am truly sorry,” Woods said in a statement. “This type of situation will not happen again.”
With less than six minutes remaining, Woods lit into guard Devon Atkinson after he committed a ticky tack foul.
The reason for Woods berating and being upset with Atkinson has never been revealed.
I would assume from the video, Woods was not pleased with Atkinson’s body language or language he may have used towards the coach.
Morehead State Athletic Director Brian Hutchinson also released a statement.
“Near the end of the game, Coach Woods’ interaction with one of our student-athletes was unacceptable,” director of athletics Brian Hutchinson said. “[The suspension] will allow Coach Woods to consider his action and behavior, and allow him time to contemplate the appropriate way to conduct himself with his players and on the sideline.”
