What a ‘Virginia Tech’ coach said to his team during the NCAA tournament
VIRGINIA TECH — A coach at a top Virginia Tech program has taken the NCAA to task for not properly educating the team about the dangers of using a helmet.
According to The Virginian-Pilot, head coach Tim Floyd has publicly complained about the helmet rules and the state of the program.
Floyd, who is the son of former NBA Hall of Famer Michael Floyd, was one of four coaches at Virginia Tech who resigned this season after a video surfaced of him yelling at a team member during the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
The coach has since apologized for his actions.
The school released a statement on Monday apologizing for what it described as a “misguided, offensive, and insensitive” comment.
The statement also said Floyd will not be coaching the Cavaliers again.
