CARY – ACC commissioner John Swofford announced on Friday harsh sanctions for Florida State following coach Mark Krikorian’s decision to leave the team’s starters behind for this week’s ACC conference championship.
Krikorian will be suspended for Florida State’s next game, while the school will be forced to forfeit the women’s soccer championship expense reimbursement of approximately $15, 000.
In addition, the Seminoles will be fined $25,000, which will be applied directly to the ACC Post Graduate Scholarship Fund.
Both Krikorian and FSU’s athletic director Randy Spetman will receive a letter of reprimand from the ACC.
The ACC is requesting a formal letter of apology to be received by the office of the commissioner by Nov. 12.
