WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Fort Hays State University says it will announce Friday what it will do with its controversial debate coach whose profanity-laced tournament debate was posted on YouTube.
The incident at a Wichita tournament in March received nationwide attention after it was posted on YouTube on Aug. 2. In the clip, debate coach William Shanahan pulled down his shorts and exposed his underwear at one point in the debate.
University officials are keeping mum about their decision until the news conference. Shanahan declined to comment on it until after Friday's official announcement.
He says he was not invited to the news conference.
