STARKVILLE – (AP) Mississippi State baseball coach John Cohen has been suspended for Friday’s game against Florida for violating the Southeastern Conference’s sportsmanship rules.
A release from the SEC said the violation occurred following Mississippi State’s 8-7 loss to Alabama on Sunday, when Cohen received a post-game ejection. The suspension also prohibited Cohen from being involved in the team’s Thursday practice.
Cohen has already served a mandatory one-game NCAA suspension for the ejection, sitting out Mississippi State’s victory over Mississippi Valley State on Tuesday.
The conference also said in the release that another ejection this season would lead to another mandatory one-game suspension and the possibility of additional sanctions.
