WATCH: Southern Illinois coach Barry Hinson unloads in press conference

10 Comments

Southern Illinois head coach Barry Hinson delivered the press conference of the year after Tuesday night’s 73-65 loss to Murray State. Hinson, the second-year coach who is 16-25 with the Salukis, has his team off to a 2-8 start this season and is less than pleased about the state of his team. Fast forward to the 3:00 mark of the video. It kicks off with this:

“I’ve been telling my wife this for years: size doesn’t matter.”

A little more than a minute later, he unleashes this gem:

“There was a sniper in the gym. Did you see that? We had guys falling down.”

“I would have thought Navy Seal Team 6 was out there.”

We laugh, but Southern Illinois senior Davante Drinkard didn’t find it too funny:

UPDATE: Hinson was on the Yahoo! SportsDash on Wednesday, where he apologized for calling out guard Marcus Fillyaw.
