Iowa coach Fran McCaffery throws a fit, bumps official to earn ejection (Video)

The Dagger

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery has been known to lose his cool every now and then, but that description doesn't quite to justice to his tantrum Sunday during a 75-71 loss at No. 4 Wisconsin.

McCaffery was unhappy with the way officials were calling a physical game and when they whistled Iowa center Gabriel Olaseni near the midway point of the second half, he absolutely lost his mind.

It wouldn't be a surprise if McCaffery is fined in the coming days because he clearly made contact with one official after earning his first technical from a different member of the crew working the game. You don't see coaches boil over like this much these days.
