Iowa coach Fran McCaffery loses his mind, gets ejected in must-see clip

Congratulations to Iowa coach Fran McCaffery for winning the Bobby Knight meltdown award, annually given to the coach with the most outrageous tantrum.


McCaffery completely lost his mind in a game against Wisconsin yesterday and bumped a ref. He was ejected as a result. Here’s the tantrum in full.

This isn’t the first time McCaffery has completely lost it during a game. In fact, it’s a somewhat regular occurrence for the Hawkeyes coach. This time, however, it cost Iowa the game. Wisconsin hit all four technical foul free throws and went on to win 75-71.

McCaffery’s meltdowns are useful at times. He gets his team fired up when they’re playing poorly. Oftentimes it works. Oftentimes it leads to a run of sorts. Yesterday it did not. Yesterday, McCaffery was solely responsible for a loss.
