NCAA suspends Ferris State's coach after players lit up cigars during postgame celebration

Mar 24, 2023

If the defending Division II champion Ferris State Bulldogs reach the playoffs in 2023, their head coach will not be on the sidelines for the first game.

The NCAA handed head football coach Tony Annese a one-game playoff suspension after two of his players lit cigars in a smoke-free locker room following a second-straight national title.

Ferris State rolled past Colorado School of Mines 41-14 at McKinney ISD Stadium.

The stadium, located outside Dallas, is used for high school games and strictly prohibits the use of tobacco on its grounds.
