Jason Capel upset with treatment from alma mater UNC; Jeff Capel responds

Shortly after Nike Sibande blocked Caleb Love’s shot to secure a win for Pitt at the Dean E. Smith Center, the Panthers piled into the hallway and visitors locker room to celebrate their victory.

And then, after the cheering settled, Jason Capel started to yell. The Pitt assistant coach wasn’t screaming at anyone in particular, but his visceral choice words were targeted at his alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“Y’all gonna disrespect me? All I did for this program? Y’all gonna boo me? I held this sh*t together when Matt Doherty tore it apart,” Capel was overheard saying by a Pittsburgh Sports Now reporter. “F*ck that sh*t.”
