Pac-12 issues public reprimand to Oregon State’s Rueck
SAN FRANCISCO - Oregon State University head coach Scott Rueck has been reprimanded by the Pac-12 Conference for public comments made about women’s basketball officiating, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.
Rueck was reprimanded for comments made to the media in a postgame press conference that called into question the officiating during Oregon State’s game versus Arizona on Saturday, Feb. 9.
“The Pac-12 membership has established rules that prohibit our coaches from publicly commenting about officiating,” stated Scott. “We have an obligation to our members to enforce approved Conference rules. 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.”
