CINCINNATI -- Some University of Cincinnati students think head coach Tommy Tuberville should be fired after he told a heckler to “go to hell” Saturday after the Bearcats lost 20-3 to BYU at Nippert Stadium.

UC Athletic Director Mike Bohn issued a statement on Twitter Sunday afternoon, saying Tuberville "was put in a no-win situation in front of his team last night which resulted in an out of character response for him.”

Hours after Bohn’s statement, Tuberville apologized for the outburst via Twitter, saying “we will fix this.”

There is no information on whether Tuberville will face repercussions for the incident.
