UCSB men's soccer player Peter McGlynn was taken from the field in handcuffs following Sunday's 2-1 home loss to UC-Davis. Gauchos head coach Tim Vom Steeg was talking to the head referee following UCSB's third straight home loss when McGlynn ran at the referee and pushed him from behind to the ground. McGlynn was handcuffed and arrested by campus police on the scene.
UCSB released the following statement on Monday: "Given the seriousness of the incident that occurred following the conclusion of UC Santa Barbara's men's soccer match on Sunday, the student-athlete involved has been removed from the team, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Mark W. Massari announced Monday. Massari also stated that, regardless of the outcome of Wednesday's game at Sacramento State or Saturday's game at Cal Poly, UCSB will forego any opportunity for postseason play this season. Finally, as head coach, Tim Vom Steeg has been suspended for the game at Sacramento. Assistant coach Greg Wilson will serve as acting head coach."
The Gauchos had appeared in the NCAA Tournament each of the last ten years including a national championship in 2006. At 9-5-3, UCSB might not have qualified for the playoffs anyway.
