When Ole Miss star Marshall Henderson left the court during the team’s blowout win over the Mississippi State Bulldogs, Henderson went into full Marshall Henderson mode and began jawing towards the sideline.

Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray wasn’t happy with the antics from Henderson, so he answered back with a profanity laced tirade of his own.

As you would expect, Ray eventually cooled down and issued a statement on his Instagram account  apologizing for cursing at Henderson.

The statement read:

”I responded inappropriately to an Ole Miss player yesterday in our game. I reached out to Coach Kennedy immediately to apologize and subsequently to the player too. There is no reason for a coach to ever have interaction with an opposing player, ever, regardless of he circumstances. I was upset more with our performance than the player, I was totally at fault.”

Ray made the right move by apologizing, but it is hard to blame him for letting Henderson get under his skin.

After all, that is what Marshall Henderson has been known to do and there is no reason to believe he will stop anytime soon.
