Cowboys’ Mike McCarthy stiff-arms cameraman after loss to 49ers

Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy appeared to let his frustrations get the better of him after the Cowboys’ playoff loss to the 49ers in the divisional round Sunday night when he was seen stiff-arming a cameraman, to stiff-arm is fend someone off by extending an arm in their direction.

The Cowboys lost 19–12 loss to San Francisco.  San Francisco eliminated The Cowboys at the same round last year.

Christian McCaffrey scored on a go-ahead 2-yard run in the fourth quarter and San Francisco’s were able to hold out and seal the victory.

In a photo which was taken by Josie Lepe of the Associated Press, McCarthy can be seen putting his hand on the camera’s lens and then pushing it away from him.

The cameraman in question, Noah Bullard of KXAS-TV, the NBC affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth, posted a video to Twitter from his point of view and said noted McCarthy met with him later to apologise.

“Thank you to everyone that has reached out regarding the Mike McCarthy incident,” Bullard said in a tweet. “I can see how the photo appeared like he pushed me but it was more of a hand to the lens. I did meet with coach McCarthy privately in his office and he did apologize.”
