A ..."Zero Tolerance"....Act

The University of Pittsburgh fired a football coach.    A coach who never actually  coached a game.   An African-American.......The 2010 Mid-American Conference "Coach of the year".

We applaud.....the University.

Michael Haywood  was arrested for a domestic violence charge....against a woman who had fathered one of his kids.

We applaud the University of Pitt.....for not making excuses.....not postponing judgments and actions.

Putting your hands do harm...on a helpless female....we find repulsive.

 From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

New Pitt coach fired after release from jail

The University of Pittsburgh fired newly hired football coach Michael Haywood one day after he was jailed on a felony domestic abuse charge in Indiana -- just 16 days after he was introduced as a leader who would bring discipline to the program.

The ouster Saturday of Mr. Haywood, 46, left the university's football program in disarray, without a head coach to lead the team in the BBVA Compass Bowl against Kentucky Saturday in Birmingham, Ala., and without a coach to recruit high school players during a crucial period that ends with the athletes signing letters of commitment Feb. 2.
