Southeastern Conference officials announced that coaches will now face stiffer penalties like fines or suspensions for complaining about officiating in the media.
Commissioner MIke Slive told the Associated Press in a phone interview Friday that coaches who violate the conference's ethics rules against criticizing officials in public will face the stiffer penalties instead of receiving public reprimands when they first act up.
Slive said on occasion there were public reprimands that took care of it, but it became clear to him after last week that he was no longer interested in reprimands and SEC athletic directors and university presidents unanimously agreed.
