SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Pac-12 and Mountain West conferences are teaming up to collaborate on men's and women's basketball officiating, putting longtime Mountain West coordinator Bobby Dibler in charge of the programs and managing a pool of the top national and regional officials.
In announcing the officiating alliance Friday, the conferences say that the West Coast Conference, Big West Conference and Western Athletic Conference also will take part in the leagues' training programs in an effort to get all officials on the same page with a common approach to training officials.
The Pac-12's system came under intense scrutiny during the conference tournament in March at Las Vegas, where former officiating coordinator Ed Rush had offered bounties - $5,000 or a trip to Mexico - for any official who disciplined Arizona coach Sean Miller.
