Josh Elander details Tony Vitello, Frank Anderson ejections

During Saturday’s game No. 2, third base umpire Jeffrey Macias ejected Tennessee head coach Tony Vitello and pitching coach Frank Anderson.

Vitello has been suspended four games, including Sunday’s series finale against Alabama. Anderson served his one-game suspension Sunday.

The Southeastern Conference released a statement to Vols Wire on Tennessee’s ejections.

Penalties related to ejections are governed by the NCAA. By procedure, umpires file a post-game report to the NCAA and the NCAA then provides a report (generally the following morning) to the conference office to confirm any related penalties associated with the ejection, at which time any penalties are communicated to the school.
