    He took full responsibility and indicated it was for an "inappropriate relationship".

    Official statement regarding resignation of Tyler Summitt

    RUSTON, La. – The following are official statements regarding the resignation of Tyler Summitt as head coach of Louisiana Tech University’s women’s basketball program.

    From Louisiana Tech University:
    “Effective immediately and for personal reasons, Tyler Summitt has stepped down as head coach of Louisiana Tech University’s women’s basketball program. The university has accepted his resignation and appreciates the contributions he has made to the growth and success of the Lady Techsters program during his tenure. Louisiana Tech will immediately begin the process of selecting a new head coach to lead the women’s basketball program and student-athletes forward. Louisiana Tech wishes Tyler and his family the best of luck in the future.”


    From Tyler Summitt:
    “It is with great regret that I resign from my position as head coach of the women’s basketball program at Louisiana Tech University. I am profoundly disappointed in myself for engaging in a relationship that has negatively affected the people I love, respect and care about the most. My hope, plans and prayers are to repair those relationships. I am appreciative of the opportunity I was given to coach at Louisiana Tech. I am heartbroken that my time has ended in Ruston, but because of my respect for the institution, it is best that I resign. I am hopeful the media and the public will respect the privacy of my family and me as we deal with this difficult situation I have caused.”

    Unfortunately I doubt his request for privacy will be honored.

    You may be emasculated, but you're sure not judgmental enough.

    I disagree. His statement is a very rare admission of guilt with no hedging. He took full blame. Show me where "any other person" does that in this messed-up world.

    He screwed up, paid the price, and acknowledged all the blame was on him.

    With complete honesty, would you say the exact same thing had it been someone like T-Spoon who had done the same thing? Somehow, I think not.

    I imagine so.

    It is a pretty rare thing to see.

    I don't excuse his behavior. ... And he did not excuse his behavior.

    He did the right thing today. I hope over time he can repair the most important relationships.
