McDermott Apologizes for “Plantation” Remark

Creighton men’s basketball coach Greg McDermott has apologized for urging players to “stay on the plantation” in a postgame locker room talk following a loss over the weekend. 

In a statement on Twitter, McDermott said he used a “terribly inappropriate analogy in making a point about staying together as a team despite the loss.” 

McDermott said he immediately recognized he had made an “egregious mistake.”
