Chris Peterson. In the recording one of the female soccer player's mother became the topic of conversation.
We're told the video we received, a Lady Trojan soccer match with Chicago State on August 22 was live streamed to
subscribers on the UALR Athletic's website.
The voice we're told is Peterson's asking the others who one of the players dates and if they remember her mom.
here's a quick excerpt of that conversation.
"She had her **** hanging out, she had two of them and there were out there for display."
In the video the voice we're told is Peterson's says he needs to make sure he knows when she's back in town.
Later on there's a discussion about whether the audio is broadcast along with the video, we're told it was.
Peterson's letter of resignation was given to the chancellor on Tuesday. According to the University they did not have an official reason for the resignation.
We are expecting to receive a statement from UALR's chancellor some time this week.
Chris Peterson released the following statement regarding his comments:
"On Friday August 27th I made insensitive remarks while visiting with some athletic department employees at a soccer game. My comments were picked up by an open microphone, unknowingly, making a private conversation public. I have apologized to the parties that may have been offended by my remarks and fully acknowledge my words were insensitive and out of line. I’ve learned a hard lesson. As I close this chapter, I know going forward that I’ll be more thoughtful, sensitive and conscientious of my actions. What my future holds I cannot say, but I’m upbeat, optimistic and ready for the next chapter."
