“This is an example of a Technical Foul for an assistant coach leaving his seat on the bench to complain to the officials. Following the missed field goal attempt, the assistant coach stands up and gestures and yells toward the officials in regards to a possible defensive foul. This type of reaction by assistant coaches is not allowed. Please note that it is permissible for assistant coaches to stand up at times, if they are given defensive or offensive responsibilities which necessitate them doing so. However, no assistant coach may direct comments at an official during live play or during a dead ball. An exception to this rule is that during a time-out, an assistant coach may ask an official for a rule interpretation. Technical fouls are to be assessed if an assistant coach’s behavior does not comply with this directive.”
