Pac-12 reprimands Steve Sarkisian
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- The Pac-12 has reprimanded Washington coach Steve Sarkisian for public comments he made about officiating and for revealing private communications he had with conference officials.
Sarkisian this week complained about the officiating in Washington's game against UCLA, and he said that the conference apologized for a blown call that wiped out a Huskies touchdown in their 41-31 loss on Friday.
Commissioner Larry Scott said Thursday in a statement: "The Pac-12 has specific rules that prohibit our coaches from making public comments about officiating and from discussing private communications with the conference office. We have an obligation to our membership to enforce the conference rules which they have approved."
Washington is the most penalized team in the country at 8.9 per game.
