Here’s the statement from Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott regarding Cal’s suspension of defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi.
“The Pac-10 takes the integrity of the game very seriously. Instructing a
student-athlete to feign an injury is an unethical and unsportsmanlike practice in violation of coaching ethics as outlined in the NCAA Football Rules and Interpretations. This behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the Conference. Nothing is more important than the integrity of our programs and the role our coaches play in building good character in our student-athletes. We commend California’s Coach Jeff Tedford and Director of Athletics Sandy Barbour for the forthright manner in which they have addressed this issue and for the positive example they are setting by
reinforcing the importance of the principles at stake.”
