MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Huntingdon College golf coach Matt Mahanic was fired Friday after a recording of his profanity-filled tirade at his players made its way onto the Internet.

Huntingdon, a Division III team, had finished 11th out of 12 teams at the Gordin Classic. The audio, recorded by one of the players, eventually made its way to Deadspin. About two minutes into the six-minute recording, Mahanic begins screaming at his players, dropping obscenities into just about every sentence.

College President J. Cameron West announced on the school's website that Mahanic had been dismissed.

He said the school adheres to NCAA principles, which says that employees should act with sportmanship at all times and represent ``the honor and dignity of fair play and the generally recognized high standards associated with wholesome competitive sports.''
