Sunday morning, University of Colorado head coach Karl Dorrell issued the following statement and apology for the incident with a local photographer at the end of CU’s 37-14 loss to Southern California in Boulder:
“I want to apologize for the incident at the end of our game Saturday. We do value the media and the coverage they provide for our program, and this was strictly in the heat of the moment. That’s not who I am, and I hope people who have known me through the years do realize that. I did reach out and spoke directly this morning to the videographer from CBS-4 and personally apologized to him.”
NOTE: Colorado was not originally scheduled to practice on Monday morning but will now do so; Karl will be available to meet with the media afterward as usual (informal in a scrum; no formal Monday presser this week with the Buffaloes having a bye this Saturday. The regular press conference schedule in the Champions Center will resume on Monday, Oct. 11.
