Official: Ex-NFL coach McCarthy berated HS refs

Former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is accused of berating officials at his stepson's high school basketball game on Tuesday, reports Fox 11 in Green Bay. The Pulaski School District says the report was not filed by the district, but by game officials involved in the incident.

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

A video obtained by the station shows McCarthy, 55, following referees to their locker room after Pulaski pulled off the victory. McCarthy's stepson is a member of the Notre Dame team.

Former Super Bowl-winning head coach Mike McCarthy might need to develop some new hobbies since he was let go by the Green Bay Packers in December. There was talk that he was in the mix for the Browns' job because of his previous Green Bay relationships with Cleveland GM John Dorsey and assistant GM Eliot Wolf, but that all fizzled out when the Browns stuck with Freddie Kitchens. District officials confirmed the man in the video was McCarthy and said he directed "unsportsmanlike language" at the referees.

Although audio cannot be heard, McCarthy can be seen gesturing until the referees continued on their way and he turned and left. The thinking was that McCarthy was going to take a year off from coaching after 12-plus seasons leading the Packers. One such official declined to be fully interviewed but described the incident to FOX 11 as a "verbal tirade". Tuesday's game was a loss for them at Pulaski, ending their season.
