Review supports Pac-12's actions
Pac-12 school presidents will take no further action after an independent review found the conference properly handled concerns about officiating during its conference tournament.
A report by Indianapolis-based law firm Ice Miller LLP said the Pac-12 was correct in ruling coordinator of officiating Ed Rush was not serious when he offered bounties to any official who disciplined Arizona coach Sean Miller during the Pac-12 tournament in March.
Ice Miller also supported Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott's decision to fine Miller $25,000 for his actions during and after Arizona's semifinal against UCLA, and found the game was officiated with integrity and no favoritism toward either team.
The Pac-12 CEO Group said it will use the report to guide its men's basketball officiating program and policies.
