New Pitt Football Coach Mike Haywood Allegedly Chokes Baby Momma

31 Dec

by Chris McCoy

Two weeks ago, Pitt hired Mike Haywood to be their new head football coach.  Now University officials are wondering if they will need to start the search again.

Haywood was arrested on domestic violence charges this afternoon in South Bend, IN according to a report by WNDU.

According to the report, Haywood got into a heated argument with his baby momma over custody of their child. Haywood, a former Notre Dame assistant coach, allegedly grabbed the woman by the arm and neck as she was attempting to leave and then proceeded to push her down.

C’mon son!

You can’t go choking out your baby moms two weeks after you get your dream job! Nobody ever told you that???

The 46 year-old Haywood was a hot commodity after turning the Miami (OH) Redhawks football team around in just his second season. The Redhawks went 9-4, won the MAC Championship, and gave Florida a tremendous scare in their first game of the season – the Redhawks were down by only nine in the fourth quarter before the Gators pulled away to win 34-12.

In Haywoods first season, Miami (OH) won only one game, the turn around was the reason his name was high on the potential head coaches depth chart. Hired as Dave Wannstedt’s replacement, this was his opportunity to take those fiery speeches and CEO-like leadership skills to a BCS school and showcase the outcome.

The University of Pittsburgh has yet to release a statement, but my guess is he may be soon looking for another job. This incident reminds me of a situation with the Florida A&M Track & Field program, where Olympian and former “World’s Fastest Man” Rey Robinson’s contract was not renewed, and Olympic gold medalist Walter McCoy was brought in as his replacement, only to resign the following week after being arrested for unemployment compensation fraud – charges which were later dropped. These charges may not be dropped, as the police report details the woman had red marks on her arm, neck and back.

Get it together Mike!

Harrison Gets A Refund Check

31 Dec

The NFL has reduced the fine levied on Steelers linebacker James Harrison for his Oct. 17 hit on Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi from $75,000 to $50,000. The league’s appeals officer, Ted Cottrell, reduced the fine because he said Harrison understands the player safety rules and has made an effort to adjust his technique to play within those rules. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell supported the reduction.

Harrison’s four fines this season for dangerous hits now total $100,000.

Kevin Garnett likely out two weeks

30 Dec

Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Thursday afternoon an MRI confirmed Kevin Garnett’s injury is a strained right calf muscle and not related to his surgically repaired knee.

Ainge, speaking on Boston sports radio station WEEI, estimated Garnett would miss two weeks with the injury. “It’s actually the muscle just off the side of the leg below the knee,” Ainge explained. “It’s not anything to do with his knee, which is great news. He may be out for a couple of weeks, at the most. … I think that’s on the conservative side.”

Garnett injured the muscle in the first quarter of Wednesday night’s Celtics loss to the Detroit Pistons, leaving the game. He immediately underwent X-rays, which came back negative.
