Shortly after the audio was posted online Monday, and West Virginia coach Bob Huggins' career was suddenly very much up in the air because he used a homophobic slur twice on live radio in a shockingly casual way, something the Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer tweeted in November 2020 started circulating.

It was a tweet about Thom Brennaman.

Brennaman was, back in 2020, the television play-by-play voice of the Cincinnati Reds and a lead announcer on NFL games for Fox. He was a big deal, an accomplished guy. But in August 2020, while working a game between the Reds and Royals, Brennaman was caught on a hot microphone calling San Francisco "one of the f-g capitals of the world," using a homophobic slur.

Very quickly, he lost those jobs. Then, just three months later, Huggins had Brennaman speak to his team.
