Michigan Basketball Coach Juwan Howard Suspended for Rest of Regular Season for Throwing Punch at Wisconsin Asst. Coach

As the Wolverines enter a brutal home stretch that could make or break their postseason hopes, they’ll be without their head coach. The Big Ten, in collaboration with Michigan and Wisconsin, announced Monday that Juwan Howard has been suspended for the final five regular-season games and fined $40,000 for his role Sunday’s postgame altercation when he struck Wisconsin assistant coach Joe Krabbenhoft in the head and sparked a skirmish at the Kohl Center.

Right decision in my opinion. Can’t believe all the idiots out there who called for Howard to be fired or to get rid of the handshake line after games. Howard was wrong, but the Wisconsin coach clearly instigated the whole thing.
