Football: Tedford reprimanded

Jeff Tedford has been reprimanded by the Pac-12 for his comments about the officiating during the Colorado game last Saturday. The reprimand likely comes from Tedford’s comment: “The one on Guyton was a terrible call,” speaking about the personal foul called on defensive end Trevor Guyton during the third quarter Saturday. The conference later acknowledged it was the wrong call.

Here’s the statement from Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott:

“The Pac-12 has specific rules that prohibit our coaches from making public comments about officiating, and this prohibition specifically includes comments that create doubts about the credibility of the Conference’s officiating program. The Conference expects each Pac-12 coach to adhere to our standards of conduct and to conduct himself or herself in a manner which will reflect credit on the institution and the Conference.”

There are no other penalties, such as a fine or suspension.
