SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Ed Rush has resigned as the Pac-12 Conference's coordinator of officials following comments that he targeted Arizona coach Sean Miller during internal meetings before the league tournament.
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement released Thursday that ``I want to express my appreciation for the great contribution Ed made to basketball officiating for the Conference during his tenure, particularly in the area of training and the cultivation of new officiating talent.''
Rush also thanked the conference for giving him the opportunity.
Scott told the AP a day earlier that Rush made an ``inappropriate joke'' before the Pac-12 tournament semifinals offering a group of officials $5,000 for a trip to Cancun if they called a technical foul on Miller, but that every official interviewed confirmed ``nobody thought they were getting a reward.''
