PITT FOOTBALL COACH JAILED ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGES

PSR Logo
New Pitt head coach Mike Haywood is being held in an Indiana jail without bond after his arrest on domestic violence charges on Friday afternoon.

Assistant St. Joseph County Police Chief Bill Redman said Haywood was arrested about 3 p.m. Friday after a custody issue developed with a woman with whom Haywood has a child. The woman told police that Haywood grabbed her by the arm and neck and pushed her as she tried to leave.

The woman had marks on her neck, arms and back.

Haywood is being held without bond in the St. Joseph County, which is scheduled to occur Monday at 1:30pm, but could possibly occur over the weekend.

“The University of Pittsburgh is aware of an alleged incident involving head football coach Michael Haywood today in South Bend, Indiana," read a statement released by the Pitt athletic department. "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.”

The University of Pittsburgh hired Haywood on Dec. 16 to replace Dave Wannstedt, who resigned under pressure. Haywood led Miami (Ohio) to a 9-4 record this season and the Mid-American Conference championship.

He was hired, according to Pitt athletic director Steve Pederson, to change the culture of Pitt football and instill more discipline in the program.
