This one sounds like an April Fools Day joke, but it’s not.
The Arizona Daily Star is reporting that Pac-12 director of officials Ed Rush offered his referee crew “inappropriate incentives” if they gave Arizona coach Sean Miller a technical foul or ejected him from a Pac-12 tournament game.
CBSSports.com originally reported the story and the Pac-12 office confirmed the essense of the report today in a statement.
Rush is saying he made the remark as a joke, but Miller received a technical one day later in the Pac-12 tournament semifinals.
Here’s the story from the Daily Star.
