KUSA - An assistant coach for Colorado State University is apologizing after video from Saturday night's bowl game showed him screaming obscenities and an anti-gay slur at the opposing team's quarterback.

In video of the heated exchange, the audio cannot be heard, but CSU defensive line coach Greg Lupfer's lips are seen yelling two offensive "F" words," one of which is a disparaging term for homosexuals.

The slur was directed into the face of Washington State University quarterback Connor Halliday during Saturday's Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

You can see the exchange for yourself. The website Deadpin has posted a slow-motion version of the video (WARNING, explicit language).

"I am truly sorry for what I said. It was wrong and those words do not represent who I am and what I believe in," Lupfer said in a statement after the game. "I apologize for the embarrassment I caused for Colorado State University, this team & my family."
The incident occured after Halliday scored a touchdown early in the game.

"I don't have anything to say about that," WSU associate athletic director Bill Stevens told 9NEWS.
