Air Force coach not dwelling on Wyo. coach actions
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Air Force coach Troy Calhoun isn't dwelling on the outburst directed at him by Wyoming coach Dave Christensen after the Falcons beat the Cowboys last Saturday.
Asked about the situation Tuesday, Calhoun likened it to military personnel having to put up with people voicing dissent about the military.
He says those people have a right to voice their views and the best thing to do is move forward and continue to defend freedom of speech.
After Saturday night's game, which Air Force won 28-27, Christensen confronted Calhoun on the field and accused Air Force of feigning an injury to its starting quarterback in order to set up the next play without taking a time out.
Christensen has since apologized and was reprimanded by the Mountain West Conference.
