Watch Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim call ESPN’s Andy Katz an idiot


Syracuse men’s basketball Coach Jim Boeheim was probably already in a bad mood after his sixth-ranked team lost to Connecticut, 66-58, Wednesday night. But he got into an even worse mood at the post-game news conference when he was asked a question by ESPN reporter Andy Katz.

Katz asked a question about the end of the rivalry between Syracuse and UConn when Boeheim let him have it.

“I’ll answer anybody’s question but yours because you’re an idiot and a disloyal person,” Boeheim said. “There are a few other things I could add but I’m not going to go there.”


Why does Boeheim hate Katz? He didn’t say, but there is one theory: A 2011 article Katz wrote that criticized Boeheim for his hands-off approach to running the program.
