sport news Troy University coach Jon Sumrall battles with his assistant coach after ... trends now
The Sun Belt Conference championship game almost became a wrestling match when Troy University coach Jon Sumrall lost his cool on the sidelines.
In the title match played against Appalachian State at Troy's home stadium, referees withheld their flags on a 2nd and 9 late in the third quarter.
Sumrall believed that there should have been a facemask called on the field - something even the announcers agreed with.
He broke into a fit of rage - at first sprinting up the sideline at the officials and almost breaking onto the field.
Sumrall's anger didn't cease as he was seen clearly shouting for a facemask call - while the so-called 'get back' coach held onto the Trojans' leader.
