Joel Miller, the USF walk on who coach Jim Leavitt is accused of striking, has finally given his own take on the story. He's defending Leavitt—just like his brother said he had no other choice but to do.
Miller told ESPN's Joe Schad that Leavitt has nothing to apologize for. He merely "grabbed my shoulder pads to motivate me, because he's a passionate guy." (That's for sure.) Joel says his family's side of the story is being "misrepresented," which is just baffling because they clearly got their side of the story from him and I don't see how you can misrepresent the sentence, "Leavitt, for lack of a better term, is an 'a-hole.'" Not a lot of ambiguity there.
