Pac-12 reprimands Washington's Romar
SAN FRANCISCO -- University of Washington Head Coach Lorenzo Romar has been reprimanded by the Pac-12 Conference for public comments he made about men’s basketball officiating, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
Romar made comments to the media questioning the officiating during Washington’s game with Oregon State Wednesday night, and subsequent public comments that did not support the Conference’s statement regarding its review of the end of game situation.
“The Pac-12 has specific rules that prohibit our coaches from making public comments about officiating,” stated Scott. “We have an obligation to our membership to enforce the Conference rules which they have approved. As a part of our officiating program, there is a protocol in place for our coaches to provide feedback directly to the coordinator of officials.”
