MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia University baseball coach Randy Mazey has issued an apology following an ejection that resulted in a two-game suspension.

Mazey says in a university news release that his emotions got the best of him when he disagreed with a ruling. He apologized to WVU administrators, players and fans for his actions.

He was ejected following the third inning of Sunday's game against TCU.

The university announced Mazey's suspension on Monday. Assistant coach Derek Matlock will serve as acting head coach for the Mountaineers' game at Virginia Tech on Tuesday and the series opener at Oklahoma State on Friday.
