Colorado football coach reprimanded, fined $10,000
SAN FRANCISCO – The Pac-12 Conference has reprimanded University of Colorado head football coach Mike MacIntyre and issued a fine of $10,000 for his inappropriate conduct towards the officiating crew at the conclusion of Colorado’s game with Oregon State on Saturday, October 4, Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
Following the conclusion of the contest, MacIntyre chased down the officiating crew as it exited the field and vehemently voiced his displeasure before security officials turned him away.
“The public postgame conduct by Colorado head football coach Mike MacIntyre was completely unacceptable,” said Scott. “Such misconduct violates Conference policy and this behavior will not be tolerated.”
“The Conference assigns a high priority for administrators, coaches and student-athletes to support its officiating program,” added Scott. “Chasing and confronting an official or officiating crew after the contest fails to meet these high standards.”
Proceeds of the fine will go towards the Pac-12 student-athlete scholarship fund.
