HONOLULU -- The Western Athletic Conference is reprimanding Hawaii coach Greg McMackin for his derogatory comment while describing Notre Dame's chant before last year's Hawaii Bowl.
The university has already suspended McMackin for 30 days without pay. He's volunteered to take an additional 7 percent pay cut from his $1.1 million salary.
The coach has also apologized for using a gay slur during a media briefing last month at the WAC football preview in Salt Lake City.
The WAC said Monday it reprimanded McMackin for violating the conference's sportsmanship code. The league says any further violations will result in a minimum one-game suspension.
