Montgomery sorry

Wed., Feb. 20, 2013

California coach Mike Montgomery said Tuesday there was no excuse for him shoving star player Allen Crabbe. “It’s obvious I made a mistake and I feel very badly about it,” Montgomery said at his weekly news conference. “There’s no place in sports that you can basically put your hands on one of your student athletes. In 30-plus years of coaching it’s never happened before. It’s something I deeply regret. It’s not going to happen again.” Montgomery has been publicly reprimanded by the Pac-12 conference and his own athletic director for pushing Crabbe with both hands during a timeout in the second half of Cal’s win over USC on Sunday night. – AP
