Shatel: What happens now with Creighton coach Greg McDermott?


By Tom Shatel

Stunning.

That’s my initial reaction to the Greg McDermott story. I try not to be surprised by anything, but this is truly stunning.

For one, that the Creighton men’s basketball coach would use a racist term in a locker room speech to his team. McDermott admitted as much and apologized on his twitter account on Tuesday.

After the loss at Xavier last Saturday, McDermott said he told the Jays, “Guys we got to stick together. We need both feet in. I need everybody to stay on the plantation. I can’t have anybody leave the plantation.”

After the loss at Xavier last Saturday, McDermott said he told the Jays, “Guys we got to stick together. We need both feet in. I need everybody to stay on the plantation. I can’t have anybody leave the plantation.” Plantation? Creighton University called the word “deplorable.” There’s no other way to describe it, writes Tom Shatel.

1. My SIL grew up with him

The families are from the same small town. She hasn't had a lot positive to say about him.
