Iowa coach Fran McCaffery didn’t have a betting ticket on his team’s game at Wisconsin on Sunday. That didn’t stop him from costing his school $10,000 in the wake of a 75-71 loss to the fourth-ranked Badgers.
McCaffery went haywire with about 12 minutes left in the game, bumping the referee in the process of getting two technical fouls and getting ejected.
On Tuesday, the Big Ten hit the coach with a one-game suspension and the school with the fine. McCaffery will miss the No. 20 Hawkeyes’ game at Northwestern on Thursday.
