UCLA football: Aaron Hester reprimanded by Pac-12

November 7, 2011 | 10:55 pm


UCLA cornerback Aaron Hester was reprimanded by the Pacific 12 Conference for comments he made after the Bruins’ game against Arizona State.

Hester was called for pass interference in the final minute, which helped set up a last-second field-goal attempt for the Sun Devils. The kick was wide and UCLA held on for a 29-28 victory.

After the game, Hester said the call was “terrible” and that officials have singled him out during games.

“Mr. Hester’s remarks were a clear violation of the Pac-12's comprehensive restrictions on public
comments on officiating, and he is being appropriately reprimanded,” Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said.
