UNLV's Chambers to serve suspension

LAS VEGAS -- UNLV head coach Tim Chambers must serve a suspension following his ejection from Sunday’s UNLV at San Diego State game, the Mountain West announced on Monday.

Despite unintentional contact with an umpire, Chambers will serve a four-game suspension, which is mandated by NCAA Baseball Playing Rule 5, section 16-b. The rule dictates that if a coach is ejected for making physical contact with an umpire, the automatic first-offense penalty is a four-game suspension. He will be prohibited from participating in UNLV’s games this week, which include a Tuesday contest against Arizona State, and three games against Nevada beginning on Thursday. Associate head coach Stan Stolte will serve as the head coach.

“I regret that I accidentally made contact with the home plate umpire during the game in San Diego,” Chambers said. “I went out to stand up for my guys after a close play at third base and the argument escalated. In no way was I attempting to intentionally come into contact with the umpire. I accept my suspension and know that as the head coach I need to hold myself to a higher standard.”
