Iowa Head Coach Fran McCaffery Goes on Tirade, Gets Ejected After Bumping Official (Video)


Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery let his temper get the best of him Saturday night, and it cost his squad the game.

With his No. 22 Hawkeyes leading No. 4 Wisconsin 41-39 midway through the second half, McCaffery chose an unfortunate time to lose his cool. The 54-year-old head coach was upset with a couple of calls that didn’t go Iowa’s way in consecutive possessions, and he made sure that the referees, the players and everyone in the Kohl Center knew he wasn’t a happy guy.

McCaffery unloaded on the referees during a TV timeout and was promptly given a technical foul for his outburst. The show didn’t end there, however, as McCaffery then bumped into a second official while he continued to yell, earning him a second technical and an ejection.

The Badgers capitalized on McCaffery’s meltdown, hitting all four of their free throws, and they eventually held on to win 75-71.
