In case you missed it while spending your New Year's Eve watching bowl games, Mike Haywood, Pitt's new head coach, was arrested on Friday afternoon in South Bend and jailed on domestic battery charges.  While we can't be sure what this means for Haywood's future at Pitt, there's a pretty good chance there won't be one.

For now, however, the school isn't saying anything about what it plans to do with Haywood.  Though Pitt did release a statement on his arrest on Friday night.

“The University of Pittsburgh is aware of an alleged incident involving head football coach Michael Haywood today in South Bend, Indiana. The University expects the highest standards of conduct from its employees, including its coaches, and any breach of those standards is a very serious matter. The University will decline further comment until more complete information is available.”

You have to believe there is some kind of ethics clause in Haywood's contract with the school, and should he be found guilty of these current charges, he'll no doubt be in violation of that clause.  Which would lead to the termination of his contract.

Pitt releases statement on Mike Haywood

How ironic for Pederson that he hires a thug.....Typical.  And they didn't like Holgorsen's lifestyle....HAHAHAHA. Apparently 20 hours is not enough time to get to know someone....Well now they can actually find a coach with a winning record as opposed to one with a criminal record

One pressing question

Has he officially signed his contract yet?  If not, the school could wipe their hands clean of the matter like Alabama did with the Mike Price affair.
