Sometimes coaches can take things just a little bit too far and that’s what Kevin Stallings of Vanderbilt did on Thursday night
In SEC college basketball action that a lot of people probably watched on Thursday night, Vanderbilt walked away with a win against Tennessee. However, while a lot of people may not have been paying attention to this particular outing, it is the one that everyone is talking about, mainly because of the actions of Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings.
It all started at the end of the game as time was running out with Vanderbilt obviously about to come away with the win. Commodores guard Wade Baldwin got a little too cocky and began clapping in the face of a Tennessee player.
Well this did not sit too well with Stallings, who wanted to reprimand Baldwin for the act. The only problem was, he went about it entirely the wrong way, telling Baldwin that he will “f***ing kill him.”
It was clearly audible there on the television broadcast, which prompted the school and Stallings to issue an apology afterwards.
"“After the game, an incident occurred in which I need to apologize for. One of our players acted inappropriately and violated what we believe is good sportsmanship following the game.“In my haste to resolve the situation, I made a very inappropriate comment. While obviously it was not meant literally, it was still inappropriate. I apologized to the player immediately following the game, although displaying good sportsmanship is of the highest priority in our program.”"
Again, not the way you want to go about things if you’re a coach.
