Fat coach extraordinaire Mark Mangino has been accused by players of being an abusive bully. Oh, and the school is doing an internal investigation on him as well. As I'm sure you can guess, he's taking things well. Wait, no. He's not taking this well at all.

Here was Mangino going nuts yesterday on his radio show, blaming both players and their parents for being f****** p******.

“Let’s take a look at this,” Mangino said. “We’ve improved graduation rates here for football. We have set semester records for team GPA. We’re graduating kids, we’re putting kids out into the world that are prepared. But I can’t do the work of some parents, what they should have done before they got to me. There’s some things for 18 years that happened in their lives that I can’t change in four years of college. Can’t change their behaviors, can’t change their attitudes.

“But let’s talk about Todd Reesing and Kerry Meier and Darrell Stuckey. Let’s talk about Nick Reid and Brandon McAnderson. Let’s talk about Charles Gordon. Let’s talk about the guys who have left here and made this place proud and not embarrassed. I think there’s people embarrassing this program just for their 15 minutes of fame.”

Yeah, this dude is so getting fired.
