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.
