South Carolina coach Shane Beamer apologized for his reaction after the school’s end zone Title IX ceremony during Saturday’s game against Georgia.
The school honored its 275 women athletes during a TV timeout at Williams-Brice Stadium as part of the ongoing recognition of Title IX’s 50th anniversary. However, the restart to the game was delayed as the athletes exited the field.
ESPN’s camera panned over Beamer, who was seen shouting “Get off the field” while looking frustrated and gesturing towards the end zone where the athletes were trying to exit. His reaction took off on social media, but on Sunday, he apologized and said he did not know what ceremony was taking place. He revealed that game officials said for teams to be prepared to restart play after the TV timeout.
