Foul language audio of UALR coach surfaces

Posted: Updated:
Little Rock (KATV) – An audio recording that appears to be former UALR baseball coach Scott Norwood has surfaced.

Norwood resigned Monday after the university finished an investigation into allegations of physical and sexual harassment.

The over six minute audio recording emerged on the popular website deadspin.com. The recording was made in the locker room after UALR’s shutout win over Southeastern Missouri State.

KATV reached out to UALR for comment, Senior Assistant Athletic Director Richard Turner replied with a statement saying:

“The situation with Scott Norwood and the UALR baseball program is still under review. As you’re aware, Scott Norwood has resigned. We are still reviewing information related to our baseball program and we are committed to full compliance with NCAA and Sun Belt Conference rules and regulations.

We’re very excited about the pool of applicants. Our baseball program will be successful as we move forward to put in place the best possible candidate for this position. Our goal is to find a replacement as soon as possible.”

Inside a sporting goods store near the UALR campus, Eamon McManos listened to the recording then said, “I’ve had coaches yell at me be not like that.”

Scott Norwood has been no stranger to news headlines.

In an extra innings game against the UCA Bears, Norwood was part of a bench clearing brawl where three UALR players were suspended for four games, one for eight games.
