After an investigation into his alleged use of a racial slur, the coach of the CBB team resigns.

Jim Hayford, the head basketball coach at Seattle University, was placed on paid administrative leave last week.

Hayford resigned from his position on Thursday evening.

Hayford used a racial slur multiple times during last Thursday’s scrimmage, according to Jeff Goodman of Stadium.

Because of that incident, the majority of Seattle’s basketball team refused to play for Hayford, according to Stadium.

The school investigated allegations that Hayford used a racial slur shortly after he was placed on paid administrative leave.

Seattle University’s athletic director, Shaney Fink, issued a statement regarding Hayford’s resignation.

In addition, he revealed the school’s top priority for the future.

“It is clear to me that Coach Hayford is no longer capable of leading the team effectively,” Fink said in a statement released by the school.

“Our top priority in the Athletic Department is and will always be to support our student athletes’ well-being and success in and out of the classroom, as well as in their chosen sport.”

We are dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive athletic community.

We will take additional measures to address any program concerns and to ensure that all of our student athletes are seen, heard, and supported.

Seattle University has started a review of the program’s climate as part of our commitment.”

On Thursday night, Hayford made a statement about his resignation.

“Despite their origins, I have always believed that the use of racial slurs has no place in society,” Hayford told Stadium.

“However, my recent attempts to limit the use of a derogatory term within my own program were misguided, and I apologized to our student-athletes for causing division.”

In light of the outcome and in the program’s best interests.”

For the time being, Chris Victor has been named as Seattle’s interim coach.
