"That's what we tried to do, 60 minutes of unnecessary roughness," Narduzzi said. "Just glad it didn't get called every snap."
"There's no question that Coach Narduzzi was caught up in the emotion of the moment," Hollis said in the statement. "However, that doesn't excuse him from being accountable for his statements. Needless to say, Pat chose his words poorly, and he expressed his regret over making those comments to our local media following practice earlier this week.
"I have taken this opportunity to express to Pat the importance of collecting his thoughts after an emotional game to ensure that he puts his best foot forward with the media and public in the future."
