Published:
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Colorado State defensive line coach Greg Lupfer has been suspended without pay for two weeks for using a gay slur when yelling at Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday in the New Mexico Bowl last weekend.
Athletic director Jack Graham also ordered Lupfer to undergo anger management and diversity training at his own expense.
Lupfer issued a statement saying he was grateful to keep his job on Jim McElwain's staff and said "I am deeply sorry for my behavior, which does not represent who I am or my values."
Lupfer got into a verbal altercation with the Cougars' QB after his first TD throw. His slur was caught on ESPN cameras and marred the Rams' comeback from a 22-point deficit for a last-second 48-45 win to kick off the bowl season.
