Arizona State’s Bobby Hurley fined $10,000 for conduct after loss to Oregon State

Bobby Hurley’s Arizona State Sun Devils suffered a loss they definitely didn’t need on Saturday night.

The coach’s pockets took an additional hit on Monday when his postgame outburst cost him a pretty penny.

Hurley was fined $10,000 by the Pac-12 Conference on Monday for his conduct after Arizona State’s 79-75 loss to Oregon State in Corvallis.

“The public post-game conduct by Arizona State men’s basketball head coach Bobby Hurley violates Conference policy and this type of behavior will not be tolerated,” Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said in a release from the conference. “The conference assigns a high priority for administrators, coaches and student-athletes to support its officiating program. Chasing and confronting an official or officiating crew after the contest fails to meet these high standards.”

Arizona State’s loss on Saturday was its third straight at a crucial time of the season that has seen the Sun Devils’ historic start melt away in an unimpressive conference portion of the season. The Sun Devils enter the final week of the season at 19-9, with a conference mark of 7-9.

Hurley received a hefty pay raise in an extension signed in January. He’s making a base salary of $1.4 million this season, per azcentral’s Doug Haller.
