Arkansas Little Rock AD resigns after being caught on hot mic talking about player’s hot mom
Longtime University of Arkansas-Little Rock athletic director Chris Peterson abruptly resigned from his job on Tuesday after being caught talking dirty about a soccer player’s mom last month during a live broadcast.
According to the Arkansas Times, Peterson was having a press box conversation with members of the school’s sports information staff during an Aug. 22 women’s soccer game between UALR and Chicago State. Typically a video feed of the game is shown on the school’s website, but this time a microphone was left on, transmitting sound during the first half of the game. That’s how Peterson’s inappropriate comments ended up being broadcast.
Here are some of the things Peterson said about the player’s mother.
“She had her s– hanging out, too. Remember that? ….. I got to make sure I’m in town for the weekend on Parents Day.
“She had two of ’em and they were out there for display.”
Peterson submitted his resignation on Tuesday and will serve his final two weeks with the school on leave. His official date of resignation is Sept. 15.
“What one hears from the Director of Athletics on the live video transmission of the women’s soccer game on August 22 is unacceptable for a person in a University leadership position. Director Peterson apologized for it and resigned,” said school chancellor Joel Anderson in a statement.
