The Pac-12 announced it has hired Ice Miller LLP to review the officiating situation during the Pac-12 Tournament in March.

After the tournament, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said officials coordinator Ed Rush improperly tried to motivate officials into more closely monitoring UA's Sean Miller and other coaches. 

Miller was called for a technical foul on March 15 against UCLA and later fined $25,000 for confronting an official and launching a tirade in front of a conference staffer.

Rush resigned on April 4 and Miller has since paid the fine.

Ice Miller LLP has a branch specializing in NCAA-related matters. One of its attorneys who handles sports, Stuart Brown, will head the investigation.

Brown is a former basketball coach who graduated with a law degree from Vanderbilt.

His bio on the Ice Miller website says: "Stuart Brown’s combined coaching and legal background enables him to provide sophisticated athletics related counsel to college and university athletics departments, senior institutional administrators, coaches, student-athletes, and other institutional stakeholders and business partners."
