JSU takes action against coach

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Jackson State University has formally reprimanded head football coach Rick Comegy for it called inappropriate comments after Saturday's 32-30 loss to Alabama State University in Montgomery.

Immediately following the game, Comegy told the JSU radio broadcast in a live interview: "They (expletive) cheated."

JSU athletics director Bob Braddy said in a statement Tuesday that the school does not approve of "such unsportsmanlike behavior." The school said Comegy later apologized for his remarks during interviews with JSU's radio station and TV station.

The Southwestern Athletic Conference may announce further sanctions against Comegy.

Comegy declined to comment after practice Tuesday.
