South Carolina coach Shane Beamer has apologized for his reaction after the End Zone Title IX ceremony against Georgia on Saturday.

The school honored 275 female athletes during a television timeout at Williams-Bryce Stadium as part of an ongoing recognition to mark the 50th anniversary of Title IX. However, the restart of the game was delayed as players left the field.

ESPN’s camera panned over Beamer. i saw you screaming “Get off the field,” gesticulating frustratedly toward the end zone where the athlete was leaving. His reaction went viral on social media, but on Sunday he apologized and said he didn’t know what ceremony was going on. I made it clear that I told them to prepare to do so.
