California Athletic Director Sandy Barbour says it was ''beyond inappropriate'' for Arkansas coach Bret Bielema to reference the death of Golden Bears player Ted Agu while defending his position on the NCAA rule proposal to slow up-tempo offenses.
Bielema brought up Agu while speaking to reporters Thursday night and in an interview Friday with SI.com. Bielema supports the proposal to require offenses to wait until 10 seconds runs off the 40-second clock before snapping the ball. He says not allowing defenses time to substitute can put players in danger, especially those with the genetic condition sickle cell trait.
Agu, 21, died during a conditioning workout Feb. 7. No cause of death has been released.
Barbour tweeted Friday: ''Bret Bielema's comments about our Ted Agu are misinformed, ill-advised and beyond insensitive.''
