Mississippi State coach apologizes for saying f— you to Marshall Henderson

Rick Ray Marshall HendersonMississippi State coach Rick Ray apologized on Sunday for cursing at Marshall Henderson at the end of the Bulldogs’ 82-63 loss to their rivals.

Mississippi State was down big in the final seconds when Ray was frustrated and said “f— you” to Henderson. Henderson is used to playing the villain role and was cruising around the court in full-on swag mode. He went 7-for-17 for 19 points.

The coach posted an apology note on Instagram Sunday. This is what the note said:

“I responded inappropriately to an Ole Miss player [Saturday] in our game. I reached out to [Ole Miss] coach [Andy] Kennedy immediately to apologize and subsequently to the player too. There is no reason for a coach to ever have interaction with an opposing player, ever, regardless of the circumstances. I was more upset with our performance than the player. I was totally at fault.”

Well, at least he owned it. But who can really blame him for what he did? Who doesn’t get ticked off at a loudmouth, green-lighted showboater like Henderson? He’s the exact type of guy who would get under everyone’s skin.
