Michigan basketball coach Juwan Howard has been suspended for the rest of the regular season and fined $40,000 for striking an opposing coach at the end of the Wolverines game against Wisconsin Sunday.
And associate head coach Phil Martelli, the former head man at St. Joe’s, takes over.
Howard’s suspension would not include the Big Ten tournament or any other postseason games.
The Big Ten also fined Wisconsin men’s basketball coach Greg Gard $10,000 for the altercation, while Michigan forwards Moussa Diabate and Terrance Williams II and Wisconsin guard Jahcobi Neath were all suspended for one game for throwing punches.
