I agree with your assessment that the coach should know the rules. My argument is you cannot have a procedure set in place then reverse the usage of the procedure via a penalty.
The play should of been reviewed, then a penalty assessed thereafter. It should of been spotted correctly, then whatever the penalty is (15 yards-automatic first down ect).
