Philadelphia Union coach Peter Nowak will reportedly be suspended after he was ejected from Saturday's game against Chivas USA. Nowak's ejection came after he came onto the field and appeared to shove a couple players following Gabriel Farfan had been ejected for the game for a studs-up tackle.
League is scheduled to officially announce later this week, but Union boss Nowak will serve game susp. from ejection on Saturday. #DOOP— Kerith Gabriel (@sprtswtr) April 23, 2012
The report probably shouldn't come as a big surprise as the league has been cracking down in all sorts of areas. To have a coach not only enter the field of play but also get involved with players is a potentially dangerous situation that the league is right to want to curtail.
It should be noted that Chivas USA coach Robin Fraser managed to stay tethered to the sideline despite the fact that it was his player who had been injured on the play.
