WAC reprimands Utah State coach

The Western Athletic Conference has reprimanded Utah State coach

Stew Morrill for yelling at a New Mexico State player during a game

last week.

Morrill shouted at New Mexico State’s Jahmar Young after he

dived on a Utah State player while going for a loose ball in Utah

State’s win on Saturday. The WAC says Morrill’s language was

provocative and violated the league’s sportsmanship rules.

Morrill issued a statement Wednesday saying his comments were

inappropriate and he made a mistake. He says Young got a technical

foul for the situation and Morrill has been reprimanded. In his

words, “that should cover it.”

The Aggies are the No. 1 seed in the WAC tournament and play

Boise State on Thursday in Reno, Nev.
