SIU Stands By Coach After Internet Rant Goes Viral

The head basketball coach at Southern Illinois University is one of the best known figures in college sports today… but he probably wishes he wasn’t. 


Barry Hinson has gained a lot of notoriety for a news conference rant that has gone viral on the Internet.  Hinson went off on his team, calling them "Mama's boys," “awful” and “uncoachable.” At one point he said his wife could post a better shooting average, because she knows how to “shot fake.” 


SIU’s athletic director says the school is standing by the coach… but says he does regret criticizing one player by name.
