Southern Illinois head coach Barry Hinson has been an overnight sensation with a six-minute postgame rant following his team’s 73-65 loss to Murray State on Tuesday night. He appeared on the second hour onThe Dan Patrick Showon Wednesday morning to discuss the viral video.

During the rant, which was mostly entertaining, Hinson calls out one of his players by name. In his interview with Patrick, he apologized for singling him out.

Toward the end of the interview, Patrick got his Hinson’s wife, Angie on the phone. In Tuesday night’s press conference, Hinson referenced her twice, both funny moments in the memorable rant.

The Salukis are 2-8. They get back at home on Saturday night to play 2-6 Ball State.
