Creighton head coach Greg McDermott is making his return to the bench this week … one game after he was suspended for making a racially insensitive comment in a post-game speech last week.
As we previously reported, McDermott admitted to using a “plantation” analogy after a 77-69 loss to Xavier on Feb. 27 … saying, “Guys, we got to stick together. We need both feet in. I need everybody to stay on the plantation. I can’t have anybody leave the plantation.”
McDermott apologized for the comment — he even offered to resign from his position — and was suspended from the team last Thursday.
