Basketball Coach Juwan Howard Suspended For 5 Games Over Courtside Brawl!!

Michigan men’s basketball coach Juwan Howard has been suspended five games and fined $40,000 for punching Wisconsin assistant coach Joe Krabbenhoft in the face after Sunday’s game.

Wisconsin coach Greg Gard was fined $10,000 for violating the conference’s sportsmanship policy but was not suspended.

 Krabbenhoft will not be punished over the brawl.

“Big Ten Conference coaches and student-athletes are expected to display the highest level of sportsmanship conduct,” conference commissioner Kevin Warren said in a statement. “I am grateful for the partnership with Michigan athletics director, Warde Manuel, and Wisconsin athletics director, Chris McIntosh.

“Our expectation is that the incident yesterday will provide our coaches and student-athletes with the opportunity to reflect, learn and move forward in a manner that demonstrates decorum and leadership on and off of the court.”

Michigan players Terrance Williams and Moussa Diabate and Wisconsin guard Jahcobi Neath were each suspended one game for also throwing punches.
