The Kansas City Star said Matt Millen apologized Monday for calling Kansas City Chiefs receiver Johnnie Morton a "faggot" after Morton rebuffed his efforts to congratulate him.
Kansas had just beaten Detroit, 45-17.
Millen apologized for his actions during a Monday news conference: "When I went to congratulate Johnnie, he just kept walking and then made a derogatory remark toward me, which really upset me. Unfortunately, I retaliated with a derogatory term toward Johnnie."
