Pac 12 head of officiating being investigated

quote:

Pac-12 coordinator of basketball officials and former NBA referee Ed Rush has been investigated by the Pac-12 for comments made about Arizona coach Sean Miller in meetings that included several Pac-12 referees.

Rush, according to a source within the Pac-12 officiating group, told a group of referees on the Thursday of the Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas that he would give them $5,000 or a trip to Cancun if they either "rang him up" or "ran him," meaning hit Miller with a technical or toss him out of the game. Rush then reiterated during a Friday morning meeting, according to one referee in attendance, that officials should take similar action against Miller if he did anything on Friday in the Pac-12 semifinals against UCLA.

"He was emphatic about not dealing with him (Miller)," the ref told CBSSports.com. "He made that perfectly clear."

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott issued a statement to CBSSports.com:

"Based on the review, we have concluded that while Rush made inappropriate comments that he now regrets during internal meetings that referenced rewards, he made the comments in jest and the officials in the room realized they were not serious offers," Scott told CBSSports.com. "Following our review, we have discussed the matter with Rush, taken steps to ensure it does not happen again, and communicated our findings to all of our officials."

"They don't talk to me," Miller said of the officials immediately after the loss. "If I cuss and I'm out of control and I've been warned, shame on me. When I say, 'He touched the ball, he touched the ball' because I thought the two of them could have maybe gotten together and explained that, in fact, he did touch the ball."
I heard the audio on radio, but I can't find a link to it, but that's what he said. LINK


quote:

Miller was fined $25,000 by the Pac-12 for confronting a game official after the game had concluded.


Like HCB said, it wasn't that serious, but still interesting.

What a messed up situation. Of all the conference commissioners, I wouldve put Larry Scott as the guy I wouldve trusted the most but his response is laughable.

Def gotta feel bad for Miller and the team as well bc that tech was bull shite.

If this happened in the SEC, against any coach playing bama, the league director of officials would get a pay raise.
