Reprimanded by Big 12
IRVING, Texas (AP) - New Texas Tech football coach Tommy
Tuberville has been publicly reprimanded by the Big 12 after an
interview in which he questioned the future of the conference.
The Big 12, which lost two members last month, issued the
reprimand Friday saying Tuberville violated a conference standard
that prohibits public criticism of members.
In an interview this week on Rivals Radio, Tuberville said there
is "too much disparity between all the teams" in the Big 12 in
how money is distributed. Tuberville said he's not sure how long a
10-team league will last.
Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe says Tuberville's comments "were
unfortunate, and contrary to the very strong feelings of unity
expressed publicly and privately by the Big 12 Board of Directors
and athletic directors."
