EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Seton Hall basketball coach Bobby Gonzalez was suspended by the university for next season's first Big East Conference game for criticizing the officiating after a loss to Rutgers in the regular-season finale.
Athletic director Joe Quinlan on Wednesday called Gonzalez's conduct on March 9 ``unacceptable'' and ``not representative'' of Seton Hall sports. The school said he failed to comply with university and conference policies.
``The Big East provides the best roster of game officials for our students in the country,'' Quinlan added in statement. ``They represent the game and the conference with great integrity and dignity. We regret any embarrassment this episode may have brought to the Big East and our fellow institutions.''
Gonzalez was not immediately available for comment.
