Washington coach Sarkisian receives reprimand

Unpublished

Walnut Creek, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Washington Huskies head football coach Steve Sarkisian received a reprimand by the Pac-12 for public comments he made about officiating.

Earlier this week, the Pac-12 reportedly issued an apology for a penalty call on Washington offensive lineman Dexter Charles. The Seattle Times reported the apology was made by the conference for an errant call that negated a touchdown in the Huskies' 41-31 loss at UCLA last Friday.

"The Pac-12 has specific rules that prohibit our coaches from making public comments about officiating and from discussing private communications with the Conference office," stated Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott. "We have an obligation to our membership to enforce the conference rules which they have approved."

The Huskies are 6-4 this season, including 3-4 in the Pac-12. They play at Oregon State Saturday night.
