DI Men's Basketball Committee issues reprimand to Kansas coach Self
INDIANAPOLIS -- Kansas men’s basketball head coach Bill Self received a public reprimand and a fine for misconduct during the 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.
Specifically, Self damaged the LED scorers table when he struck it during Kansas’ third-round contest against the North Carolina.
NCAA guidelines define misconduct as “any act of dishonesty, unsportsmanlike conduct, unprofessional behavior or breach of law, occurring from the time the championship field is announced through the end of the championship that discredits the event or intercollegiate athletics.”
“Coach Self’s actions were out of line with the committee’s expectations that championship participants act in a manner that represents the highest standards of sportsmanship,” said Ron Wellman, chair of the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee and athletic director at Wake Forest.
