NFHS Case Play 2.8.4

Who informs the coach when a player is disqualified on fouls?

It is recommended that the non-ruling official in a crew of two or the table side (trail or center) in a crew of three be responsible for notification. The scorer is to indicate to that official when a player has committed his/her fifth foul (personal and technical) or second technical foul. The official will immediately notify the coach, the timer and then the player of the disqualification. The player is officially disqualified and becomes bench personnel when the coach is notified. COMMENT: Once the coach is notified, the disqualified player becomes bench personnel and any subsequent technical foul on that disqualified player is also charged indirectly to the head coach.
