KU coach, player get Big 12 reprimand

Kansas defensive coordinator Vic Shealy and linebacker Steven Johnson were publicly reprimanded by the Big 12 for criticizing officials.

Shealy and Johnson were critical of a face mask penalty called against KU's Anthony Davis that helped set up a Baylor field goal at the end of the first half in Saturday's 31-30 Baylor win in overtime.

"Both individuals violated conference rules that prohibit coaches, student-athletes, athletic department staff and university personnel from making public comments about game officials," Big 12 interim commissioner Chuck Neinas said. "Consistent with our precedent for such violations they are being issued a public reprimand."
