Jim Boeheim Shoots Down Andy Katz as "Disloyal Idiot" [VIDEO]

by at . Comments

Following his team's loss to Connecticut last night, Jim Boeheim was barely in the mood to answer questions from the press.

Still, he performed his duties as Syracuse head coach... until it came to ESPN reporter Andy Katz.

Responding to a simple question about the historic rivalry between the schools, Boeheim cut Katz off and then cut him down to size with:

"I'll answer anyone's question but yours because you're an idiot and really a disloyal person. And a few other things I can add, but I'm not gonna go there."

It's unclear what set Boeheim off, as sources say he hasn't even talked to Katz since late 2011.

But it is believed the coach is livid over how Katz covered the Bernie Fine mess at Syracuse, after that assistant coach was accused of sexual assault and harassment.

"Andy Katz is one of the industry's best reporters, who is extremely professional and respected," ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said in a statement to USA TODAY Sports. "He doesn't know exactly what led to that reaction from Coach Boeheim, who hasn't spoken to Andy since December 2011."

Dear Jim Boheim, Let's talk about "loyalty". Sometimes loyalty can be a bad thing like when you were loyal to your assistant coach who sexually molested young boys. The counts against him were dropped because the case was too old.
