A new KHSAA rule states the penalty for ejection of a coach or adult is a minimum of two games. For a player, the minimum suspension is one game.
That means the coaches will miss Tuesday's home game with Webster County and Thursday's road game at Hopkins County Central. Neither coach can be at the game site while the game is being played and both must complete a sportsmanship program through the KHSAA or face further suspension.
Chidester, a volunteer assistant coach for the Wildcats, was assessed a technical foul for protesting a free throw lane violation, according to the report filed with the KHSAA. Chidester was later given a second technical foul for waving his hand at an official talking with Wright and subsequently ejected from the game.
Wright was later ejected early in the fourth quarter for saying something "in a loud tone" to one of the officials, according to the report.
Wright said on the WKDZ postgame show that he got tired of the officials always asking his bench area for towels to wipe sweat up from the floor and told them to ask the other team for a towel, which prompted the ejection.
Later in the postgame show, Wright said assistant coaches Charles Alexander and Charles Terrell would coach the Wildcats while he sat out his suspension.
