Big 12 Conference Sanctions Texas Tech Football Coach Mike Leach

In accordance with the Big 12 Conference Principles and Standards of Sportsmanship, the Conference has issued a public reprimand of Texas Tech University head football coach Mike Leach for his comments following Saturday's game against Texas.

In addition, the Conference also assessed a $10,000 fine for Leach's post-game remarks and put him on notice that any future such behavior will result in a more serious penalty, including a possible suspension.

"Coach Leach's public statements called into question the integrity and competence of game officials and the Conference's officiating program," stated Commissioner Dan Beebe.  "Accordingly the seriousness of this violation warrants a public reprimand and the largest fine issued to date by the Conference."

Beebe noted that coaches are an integral part of the game officials' evaluation process, which enables them to express concerns and address specific issues privately.  Coaches are also able to submit video of calls for review to the Conference for feedback.
