IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa coach Fran McCaffery has apologized for an outburst that got him ejected from Sunday's loss to No. 4 Wisconsin

McCaffery was called for back-to-back technical fouls and tossed from the game for arguing with officials with 12 minutes left. The Badgers rallied for a 75-71 win.

McCaffery says in a statement that he's sorry for his emotional reaction. McCaffery says he has great passion and respect for the game and regrets that his actions put the program and the university in a negative light.

Athletic director Gary Barta says he has already met with McCaffery and that McCaffery "knows he crossed a line of acceptable behavior."

Barta also says that McCaffery has his full support moving forward.
