MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (May 4, 2015) – West Virginia University head baseball coach, Randy Mazey has been suspended for two games per NCAA Baseball Playing Rule 2-26, A.R. 7 (prolonged arguing or unsportsmanlike conduct following an ejection), following his ejection after the third inning of Sunday’s game against TCU.
Mazey will miss WVU’s game at Virginia Tech on Tuesday, May 5, and the series opener at Oklahoma State on Friday, May 8. Assistant coach Derek Matlock will serve as WVU’s acting head coach in Mazey’s absence.
“I would like to apologize to our administration, players and fans for my actions on Sunday afternoon in the TCU game,” Mazey said. “We value good sportsmanship, but my emotions got the best of me when I disagreed with the ruling on the field. I look forward to being back with my team on Saturday and I will work hard to make sure that this is not an issue in the future.”
West Virginia will have no further comment regarding the suspension.
