NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL fined New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick $50,000 and Washington Redskins assistant Kyle Shanahan $25,000 on Wednesday for their conduct toward replacement officials.

The fines come as the league and its referees’ union are meeting amid reports they are close to ending the lockout of the regular officials.

Belichick grabbed an official’s arm at the end of Sunday night’s game after the Ravens kicked a winning field goal. Shanahan was cited by the league for “abuse of officials” in Washington’s loss to Cincinnati.

“Whatever the league decides to do, I’ll respect and just try and do my job,” Belichick said before his fine was announced.

Shanahan, the son of Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for berating officials in the final seconds of the Redskins’ 38-31 loss. He also confronted an official in a stadium tunnel after the game.

Also, the NFL said Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh won’t be fined for making contact with a game official during Sunday’s 31-30 win over New England. Ray Anderson, the NFL’s vice president of football operations, said Harbaugh did not violate the rule regarding abuse of officials.

On Monday, the league fined Broncos coach John Fox $30,000 and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio $25,000 for berating officials during a loss to Atlanta on Sept. 17.
