LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- The Big 12 fined Texas Tech coach Mike Leach $10,000, the largest fine in conference history, for comments he made about officiating Saturday.
The fine was twice the previous high and announced Tuesday. After No. 12 Texas beat the Red Raiders 59-43 Saturday, Leach condemned the officiating crew in Austin, calling their work during the game "a complete travesty."
The eighth-year coach was upset officials disallowed two Texas Tech touchdowns in the third quarter, the first on an overrule after reviewing video that showed the receiver let the ball hit the ground. A TD pass on the next play was negated by a holding penalty.
