The University of Pittsburgh is withdrawing from debate tournaments and a debate coach has apologized for an argument in which a Kansas coach ``mooned'' her during a tournament.

The argument between Pitt Professor Shanara Reid-Brinkley and Fort
Hays State Bill Shanahan showed up on YouTube last month.

It started when Fort Hays removed Reid Brinkley as a judge and a competing team suggested it was racially motivated. Fort Hays fired Shanahan. Reid-Brinkley won't coach or travel with debate teams this year. She also apologized for using obscenities during the argument.
