U of Nevada Coach Fox Reprimand...

Per the article, the WAC has reprimanded U of Nevada head coach Mark Fox for his behavior toward game officials and police during the 2007 WAC Tournament. It is interesting to note that the last time the WAC suspended a coach was nearly a decade ago (Feb. 10, 1998).

The best quote in the article: "A public reprimand is just pretty much what it says," Chaffin told The Associated Press from WAC headquarters in Denver. "It's not really penalizing. It would go in the file and next time something like this happens, more stringent penalties could occur."

I guess they have the "Steve Howe 8 Strikes and Your Out" rule in the WAC...

The WAC is really sending a message about how important they consider sportsmanship.

If he's not careful, he could get censured. Next is a "stern talking to". If that doesn't work, there might be a "non-binding resolution" to follow!

Beware, Coach!
I couldn't afford a cool signature, so I just got this one.
