Former Packers coach Mike McCarthy went on 'tirade' against high school referees

A complaint has been filed against him, per a report from Wisconsin.
Publish date:

Former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is reportedly under investigation for berating a referee at a high school basketball game.

McCarthy was attending the Tuesday night game between Pulaski High School and his stepson's Notre Dame Academy, when he was involved in an incident with the officials after Pulaski won by a single point.

FOX6 News Milwaukee shared surveillance footage from the game, and while it doesn't have any audio, it shows McCarthy following and engaging the refs as they leave the court.

Its sister station, WLUK in Green Bay, reports that McCarthy's actions were described as a "verbal tirade" by one of the referees.

"This parent chose to follow the officials and berate them, which is clearly unacceptable," added Janel Batten, Pulaski's athletics director.

A complaint has also been filed with the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association.

McCarthy was fired by the Green Bay Packers in December after a home loss to Arizona, having been the Packers head coach for 13 years, during which he won one Super Bowl.

Notre Dame Academy is located in Green Bay, just a mile-and-a-half from Lambeau Field.
