The head golf coach at Huntingdon College, a private Methodist college located in Montgomery, Ala., has been fired after he verbally exploded on his players in an extended profane rant following the team’s 11th place finish in a 12-team tournament in Ohio last month.
Deadspin posted the audio of former head coach Matt Mahanic’s wild rant on Thursday. On Friday, the school’s website had removed his name and named an interim head coach.
Apparently, it wasn’t the first time that Mahanic lost his cool. The difference this time was someone on the bus was recording when the coach went off the rails.
Listen here, the yelling starts at around 1:40 (WARNING! Graphic language):
Here are some of the highlights from the clip, brought to you by Deadspin, edited for content by TheBlaze:
“That is f**king horrendous. Horrendous that nobody can shoot f**king par on that golf course. That is the most f**king embarrassed I’ve ever been in my life, having to walk around that f**king scoreboard and look at those other f**king coaches—F**king 11 teams beat us this week! Eleven f**king teams! Goddam*it!”
“I gotta f**king go up there and watch that bullsh*t you four call golf! Like watching f**king paint dry! My dad looked and me and said, ‘Why the f**k are you recruiting these kids?’”
“I’m ready to lose my f**king mind. There is no f**king helping you! …F**king not a big deal, though. It’s not a big deal. F**king hunky-dory.”
“We f**king don’t deserve sh*t. F**king—we haven’t broke 300 all year. Four f**king chances in nice weather, and we haven’t broken 300 yet. F**k me.”
“I don’t want to hear a f**king word out of anybody until we get back to Kentucky[?]. Put your f**king headphones on, go to sleep, I don’t give a shit. I had to watch you play golf for the last 54 f**king holes. Please do not let me hear your f**king voice right now.”
And here is the school’s statement:
MONTGOMERY, Ala.- Huntingdon College President J. Cameron West announced today that the College’s director of golf, Matt Mahanic, has been dismissed, effective immediately.
“As a member of Division III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, we adhere to the principles expressed in the NCAA Bylaws,” said West. “To quote the Bylaws, ‘Individuals employed by or associated with a member institution to administer, conduct, or coach intercollegiate athletics shall act with … sportsmanship at all times so that intercollegiate athletics as a whole, their institutions and they, as individuals, represent the honor and dignity of fair play and the generally recognized high standards associated with wholesome competitive sports.’”
