The situation for college basketball officials doesn’t seem to be getting any better.
Reports have surfaced that Gerald Boudreaux, Coordinator of Officials for the Southeastern Conference, will not have his contract renewed, according to ESPN.com’s Andy Katz.
No reason was given for the action.
This comes a little over a week after Pac-12 Conference officiating head Ed Rush resigned following reports that he “jokingly” offered $5,000 or a trip to Cancun to any official who gave Arizona coach Sean Miller a technical or ejected him.
Unlike Rush’s situation, there isn’t a clear-cut example that could’ve led to Boudreaux’s non-renewal. The officiating has been sub-par across the board in college basketball this season, with a lot of inconsistencies. Maybe the SEC thought it was just time for a change.
Boudreaux served as an SEC referee for 20 years (1986-2006) before ascending to his current title.
