College basketball coach gets ejected from game without saying a word.


Put to rest any thoughts that Jim O'Brien can't be an effective coach this season. He may not be able to scream or yell at officials due to a vocal cord injury suffered during neck surgery last month, but O'Brien is managing just fine.

Maybe a little too well, actually.

O'Brien got what may be the first "written technical" during Ohio State's 76-65 loss Friday night at San Francisco.

That's right, O'Brien was teed-up and thrown out of the game with four minutes remaining for not uttering a single word. But the three words he wrote on a grease board more than got his message across.

Talk about power of the pen.

"The officials couldn't hear me, and I asked one of them to come over so he could and he wouldn't," O'Brien said Sunday to The Associated Press in advance of this week's EA Sports Maui Invitational.

"I took the clipboard and wrote 'This is sad' and turned it to him. That got me the technical. I don't think he could even see it, but I was gone."
