Mike McCarthy apologizes for gunning photographer in face

0 9

A photographer harassed by Mike McCarthy following the loss of the Dallas Cowboys’ Divisional Round has taken to Twitter to say that the head coach has apologized.

The Dallas Cowboys suffered another frustrating loss in the playoffs, failing to reach the NFC Championship Game for the first time since the 1995 season. The offense couldn’t do much to score points for the San Francisco 49ers defense and overcome the loss of running back Tony Pollard, who suffered a sprained ankle and broken fibula. The Cowboys lost 19-12, as their final drive fell flat, highlighted by a missed hook and ladder play.

After the game, head coach Mike McCarthy was pictured pushing a cameraman aside as he left the field at Levi’s Stadium.

NBC Dallas-Fort Worth photojournalist Noah Bullard tweeted an update on the incident, saying McCarthy was not pressuring him. Instead, he put his hands on the lens. Bullard said McCarthy contacted him to apologize during a meeting in the coach’s office.

Bullard also tweeted video of the incident, which showed McCarthy putting his hand on the lens and not pushing the camera with full force.

Camerman says Mike McCarthy has apologized for the post-game incident

Here is. Bullard said it was not a scuffle from McCarthy and the coach apologized to him.

McCarthy again had his playoffs by the 49ers. This is the fourth time this has happened – twice as head coach of the Green Bay Packers and twice as boss of the Cowboys.

While Cowboys fans expressed their frustration with McCarthy for game planning and clock management, owner Jerry Jones stood by his side and said after the game that losing the division round did not affect his status within the team.

The photo may have made it look like McCarthy pushed Bullard violently, the NBC photojournalist said that wasn’t the case.
