Boys' basketball: Coaches beware of critical Twitter comments

January 28, 2011 | 10:24 am

A high school basketball coach in Kentucky has been reprimanded for critical comments about a referee he made on Twitter.

Jeffersontown Coach Jeff Morrow criticized an official's call on Twitter, and the Kentucky High School Athletic Assn. fined the basketball program $1,500, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Morrow also loses coaching box privileges for three games.

Welcome to the ramifications of social media.
