PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) -Arkansas-Pine Bluff coach Monte Coleman has received an official reprimand from the Southwestern Athletic Conference for criticizing officials after a loss to Jackson State last weekend.
``This is the worst officiating game I have ever been a part of,'' Coleman said, according to the Pine Bluff Commercial newspaper. ``I'm talking about ever. Ever. These guys, all of them, print their names because they shouldn't get paid.
``They should be suspended. Every last one of them.''
According to the newspaper, Coleman was upset about losing his final timeout during the fourth quarter. Coleman said he wanted to talk to an official about a roughing the passer call.
``I said, 'I just need to ask you a question, can you come over?''' Coleman said. ``He said, 'If I come over, it's going to be a timeout.' So I turned and walked away. I looked back, and he's calling a timeout.''
UAPB lost 21-10 to fall to 0-6. The Golden Lions were called for 11 penalties for 106 yards, and Jackson State was called for 16 penalties for 118 yards.
the appropriate course of action,'' commissioner Duer Sharp said in a release Wednesday. ``As with all athletic competitions, emotions can and do run high, but that does not condone the comments of coach Coleman. We hold our coaches and administrators to the highest standards and we expect them to conduct themselves in a way which brings creditability and professionalism to the conference.''
Coleman, a former linebacker for the Washington Redskins, is in his first season as UAPB's coach.
