AMES, Iowa (AP) — A school superintendent says Iowa State University's athletic director was removed from a high school basketball game after criticizing a referee's call.

Marty Lucas, superintendent for the Colfax-Mingo school district, says Jamie Pollard was asked to leave a game Tuesday night between Colfax-Mingo High School and Gilbert High School. Pollard's son plays for Gilbert.

Lucas says the referee heard Pollard disagree with a game call during a timeout. The referee asked school officials to remove Pollard. Lucas says Pollard did not yell or use foul language.

The incident happened toward the end of the game. Lucas says it was a heated game and Pollard was "a dad being a dad."

Iowa State spokesman Tom Kroeschell confirms Pollard was removed but declined further comment.

Colfax-Mingo won 68-55.
