Fired Coach Haywood Enters Plea

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - A magistrate in Indiana has entered a

not guilty plea on a felony domestic violence charge for former

Pittsburgh coach Mike Haywood.

Haywood walked out of the courtroom and didn't speak to

reporters after his brief initial court appearance Monday. His next

appearance is set for Jan. 11 in St. Joseph County Superior Court

in South Bend.

Haywood faces six months to three years in prison if convicted

of domestic battery in the presence of a minor. Police say Haywood

was arrested Friday after a custody issue developed with a woman

with whom Haywood has a child.

Haywood replaced Dave Wannstedt on Dec. 16. Pittsburgh fired

on Saturday after he was released on bond.
