Rex Chapman made a pretty embarrassing mistake while covering this year’s NCAA tournament.

Chapman, who is working for CBS as a studio analyst during the tournament, apparently believed that former Providence head coach Pete Gillen had died and paid his respects to Gillen during Saturday’s March Madness pregame show.

The only problem with Chapman’s comments about Gillen is that Gillen is still alive and actually works for CBS as a college basketball analyst.

Update: Pete Gillen appeared to get a good laugh over Chapman’s mistake.

Chapman got crushed by college basketball fans over his mistake.
