Idaho's Verlin gets reprimanded, apologizes

Western Athletic Conference commissioner Karl Benson delivered a warning to Idaho coach Don Verlin for comments made about the officiating after Saturday's loss to Nevada.

"Coach Verlin's comments criticizing the officials clearly violated the WAC sportsmanship code and will not be tolerated," Benson said in a statement. "Any further violations of the code will result in a minimum one-game suspension."

That had Verlin apologizing by issuing a statement in the same press release.

"I recognize the inappropriateness of my comments and apologize to the WAC, University of Idaho and to the officiating crew for my remarks after the Nevada game."
