CSU Coach Suspended 2 Weeks For Calling WSU QB “f*cking f*ggot”

Colorado State Assistant Coach Greg Lupfer has been suspended two weeks without pay for the incident Saturday during the New Mexico Bowl where he called Washington State QB Connor Halliday a “f*cking f*ggot.” Here is Lupfer’s statement released through the university:

“I accept these consequences — two weeks without pay and the training programs — and I am thankful for this second chance to continue coaching at Colorado State and be a part of the Ram Family,” Lupfer said in a statement. “I am deeply sorry for my behavior, which does not represent who I am or my values. I embrace the opportunity to participate in anger management and diversity sensitivity training. I was angry and careless with my words, and my words hurt many people. I sincerely apologize to the GLBTQ community for causing pain by using a slur without considering its meaning. I take ownership of my words and fully understand why people are very upset.”

The university also said that Lupfer would be placed on a zero-tolerance policy. Something tells me that they go on pretending this never happened after the two weeks are up. A strong statement would have been to have a “zero-tolerance” policy for gay slurs the first time a representative of the university did this.

    Mike Tomlin loses $100,000 for just standing outside the sideline. This coward suppose to be an example to young men calls a young man outside of his name with a hatful slur and he gets a slap on the rest. Why you you even want this coward coaching your son? I feel if you can just use that word when you get angry i feel its more likely he uses other racial slurs as well. Whats anger managment going to help a guy in his 40′s anyway i feel by the time to that age you are who you are and should at least some emotional control. He should really look in the mirror. i would never respect a coach like that at all.
