Oregon’s Aliotti apologizes for Leach comments
Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti has apologized for his harsh comments about Washington State coach Mike Leach.
“The bottom line is, I’m sorry,” Aliotti said in a statement released by Oregon. “I’m embarrassed that I got caught up in the moment after the game. There’s no excuse, but sometimes right after the game the adrenaline is still flowing and I made a huge, human error in judgment. I wish I could take it back, and I promise it won’t happen again.
“I’d like to apologize to Mike Leach and Bill Moos (Washington State athletics director), Washington State and its fans, and Oregon and our fans.”
Trailing 62-24 late in the fourth quarter, Washington State threw two touchdown passes in the final four minutes against Oregon backups.
Aliotti said following the game that he thought WSU’s decision to leave its starters in late was “Bull—-” and “low class.”
