Last week, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey sent a memo to the schools in the SEC saying that they could face fines or suspensions if they didn’t start following the league’s protocols.
During last weekend’s games, several coaches were caught on the sidelines without properly wearing their mask and now ESPN has reported that “multiple” SEC schools have been fined in $100,000 reductions from their yearly conference revenue.
Sankey made an appearance on ESPN radio where he noted that they are keeping a close eye on who is wearing a most properly and who isn’t.
“We started on Monday using broadcast game footage evaluating every time a head coach is on camera, is a mask up, yes or no?” he said. “If you don’t have that mask in place a super-majority of time … that puts you in jeopardy of a fine.”
Hopefully, this helps lead to every school and respective coaching staffs following the guidelines moving forward.
