VIDEO: Pennsylvania coach head-butts referee


LANGHOME, Pa. (WOOD/WCMH) — A Pennsylvania high school basketball coach accused of head-butting a referee is on administrative leave.

Video captured during a boy’s basketball game Tuesday shows the act.

WCMH reports that with less than 30 seconds on the game clock, a player on one of the teams was called for charging.

The team’s coach got upset and a referee called a technical foul against him. At that point, video captured by City of Basketball Love appears to show the coach head-butting the referee.

The coach received a second technical foul for the act and was ejected.

WCAU in Philadelphia reported the referee was not seriously hurt and he remained on the court.

The original version of this story was first published on WCMH’s website.
