WVU Coach Bob Huggins had a lot to say after WVU lost to Kansas last Saturday. Whether the criticism was warranted or not, NCAA coaches aren’t allowed to criticize officiating. The Big 12 came out and issued a “Public Reprimand” to Huggins.
“There are proper channels within the Conference structure to handle officiating concerns,” said Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby. “Coach Huggins’ public comments are contrary to the Conference’s Sportsmanship standards.”
A “Public Reprimand” isn’t anything serious. It is basically a warning to Huggins, not to publicly criticize officiating again.
