Iowa State athletic director apologizes for criticizing call at son's school game

Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard is apologizing for his comment at a high school basketball game that led to his removal.

The Des Moines Register (http://dmreg.co/12wRawz ) reports that Pollard says he's sorry he said anything that he shouldn't have said at the Tuesday night game between Colfax-Mingo High School and Gilbert High School. Pollard's son plays for Gilbert.

School officials say a referee heard Pollard disagree with a game call during a timeout. The referee then asked school officials to ask Pollard to leave. Pollard did not yell or use foul language and immediately left.

School officials say Pollard was well-behaved all night, and they're calling the incident minor.
