ISU head football coach Mike Kramer suspended in wake of shoving incident

Idaho State University head football coach Mike Kramer has been suspended for his team's game at Montana on Saturday for violating the university's conduct policy, the Associated Press reports, in the wake of a shoving incident in which Kramer was captured on video running across the field and shoving wide receiver Derek Graves to the ground during practice Oct. 3. Graves, who reported the incident to Pocatello police, suffered neck spasms and hasn't been cleared to play or practice by ISU's medical staff since the incident; the video received widespread national attention. Athletic director Jeff Tingey announced the suspension and said Kramer also was issued a letter of reprimand; the university said it would have no further comment because the matter was a personnel issue.

The Bengals' associate head coach Don Bailey will serve as the acting head coach on Saturday as Idaho State (1-6, 0-4 Big Sky) takes on Montana (3-5, 1-4).
