STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh was reprimanded by the Pac-10 for criticizing the conference's officials following last weekend's loss at Notre Dame.
``Pac-10 rules prohibit comments by a coach about officiating other than to the conference office,'' commissioner Tom Hansen said in a statement. ``Coach Harbaugh violated that rule by publicly criticizing the officials.
Harbaugh was angry about a fair-catch interference call against the Cardinal's Nate Wilcox-Fogel in the second quarter of a 28-21 loss to the Irish.
Instead of recovering a muffed punt by Armando Allen in Notre Dame territory, the penalty gave the Irish the ball at the Cardinal 48 and led to the score that put Notre Dame up 21-7.
``We got a couple really bad calls go against us. That's what I saw from the field anyway. It's hard to imagine that people don't know football any better than that,'' Harbaugh said after the game.
did interfere with Allen.
``Even though the player attempting to catch the kick was bumped by his teammate, he still attempted to catch the kick and was impeded by the Stanford player,'' Hansen said. ``The rule places the onus on the kicking team member to avoid impeding the opportunity to catch the ball.''
Harbaugh was not immediately available for comment because his wife, Sarah, gave birth to a daughter early Tuesday morning. The baby girl was 7 pounds, 14 ounces and the school did not yet know what her name would be.
This is the couple's first child since getting married earlier this year. Harbaugh has three children from a previous marriage.
