I’d have said something about Coach Bozeman always having a place to crash at the Kidd house when things got tough, but, hey, when it rains, it pours. Ham sandwiches! From the Associated Press :

Morgan State basketball coach Todd Bozeman was charged with misdemeanor assault after an argument with a restaurant employee following a close loss to Longwood.

Bozeman “just went belligerent, screaming that he didn’t want ham sandwiches,” and grabbed and shook a female assistant manager.

Police were called to Mulligan’s restaurant near the Longwood campus Saturday after Bozeman arrived to pick up dinner for the team, according to restaurant manager Carlos Holland.Holland said Bozeman “just went belligerent, screaming that he didn’t want ham sandwiches,” and grabbed and shook a female assistant manager.

“We had kids in here eating, nice and quiet with their families,” Holland said.

“He’s the head coach of a university, showing a bad example.”Police Chief Stuart Dunnavant confirmed Holland’s account and said Bozeman was not taken into custody.

A call to a Morgan State spokesman wasn’t immediately returned Monday. Morgan State blew a 10-point second-half lead and lost to Longwood 75-73 at the buzzer.
