I'm sure it will be said that Jacksonville's coach should have been dealt with earlier than the third quarter if the reporter/columnist's description is accurate ... and I suppose that I would agree that more proactive measures were needed by the officials. But I will also say that I am sad that schools themselves don't deal with their coaches. Maybe after rushing the court this coach will finally lose his job -- maybe not. But I think the school itself is shamed by allowing a coach to ever get to that point.

I thought the following paragraph in the article was interesting: "It may seem offhand of me to say it, but, given that refereeing is a largely subjective, always-difficult job, wouldn’t it behoove basketball coaches to accept that it’s all probably going to even out over the course of a season and focus on what they can control: their own team’s performance?"

That has occurred to a few of us, too....

In earlier years I would have ignored this

The more I officiate the less I am willing to put up with outrageous behavior. I politely request the coach to stay in their box much more than ever before. I also don't respond if they're just venting continually.

If the description is accurate, maybe the officials should have taken care of this earlier. I also hope the school or district takes additional action.

I always appreciate it when a coach is coaching and teaching instead of refereeing.
