ASU’s Bobby Hurley fined $10,000 for inappropriate conduct toward officials
The Pac-12 announced Monday they have reprimanded Arizona State Sun Devils head coach Bobby Hurley and fined him $10,000 for his conduct toward officials at the end of the team’s game Saturday against Oregon State.
A video of Hurley shows him at the end of his team’s loss heavily disagreeing with the officials before following them off the court on the way to the tunnel to continue making his argument.

“The public post-game conduct by Arizona State men’s basketball head coach Bobby Hurley violates conference policy and this type of behavior will not be tolerated,” said Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott in a statement.
“The conference assigns a high priority for administrators, coaches and student-athletes to support its officiating program,” he said. “Chasing and confronting an official or officiating crew after the contest fails to meet these high standards.”
In early January, the conference reprimanded Hurley for his comments after the team’s loss to Colorado.
I’m having a fine day!

Proceeds of the fine will go toward the Pac-12 student-athlete scholarship fund.
