New Pitt coach jailed on domestic violence charge

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – New Pitt coach Mike Haywood is jailed on a domestic violence charge after a struggle at his South Bend home.

Assistant St. Joseph County Police Chief Bill Redman says Haywood was arrested about 3 p.m. Friday after a custody issue developed with a woman with whom Haywood has a child. The unidentified woman told police that Haywood grabbed her by the arm and neck and pushed her as she tried to leave.

Redman says the woman had marks on her neck, arms and back.

Haywood will be held without bond in the St. Joseph County jail until he goes before a judge. Redman says that might occur over the weekend, but no later than Monday.

Pittsburgh hired Haywood on Dec. 16 to replace Dave Wannstedt, who resigned under pressure. Haywood led Miami (Ohio) to a 9-4 record this season and the Mid-American Conference championship.
