HS Basketball Coach Head-Butts Referee to the Ground

Video has emerged of a high school varsity basketball coach head-butting a referee during the last 30 seconds of a game Tuesday evening.

 

Jerry Devine, in his 10 season as a Pennsylvania varsity head coach, evidently wasn't pleased with the call and took matters into his own hands, or head. He head-butted the referee and was hit with his second technical of the game which garners an ejection. 

It's unclear if there will be charges filed but a WBCB broadcaster gave his account of the situation.

"The coach went crazy," Chris Ermer said. "He came out and made contact with the official and took him off his feet. He was indicating with his body language that he didn't mean to do it. I think he intended to get in the guy's chest. But as he he did, he was off balance and went down. You can't say he didn't intend to make contact, but I don't think he was trying to head-butt the ref."

 

 

The police are currently reviewing the situation.
