Creighton Suspends Greg McDermott


Creighton University has suspended basketball coach Greg McDermott indefinitely for using racially insensitive language while addressing his team after a game last weekend.

McDermott publicly apologized Tuesday and again Wednesday for urging his players to “stay on the plantation” after the 14th-ranked Bluejays’ 77-69 loss at Xavier.

McDermott coached in the Bluejays’ 72-60 loss at No. 10 Villanova on Wednesday night.

Assistant coach Alan Huss will serve as interim head coach for the home game against Butler on Saturday.
