So if coaches continue to bully and berate replacement officials, could one or more of them be ejected?
As the guys at The Dan Patrick Show determined earlier this week, the NFL has no record of any head coach ever being ejected. But that doesn’t mean it won’t happen.
On Friday, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said that an ejection hasn’t been ruled out. “It’s always a possibility if someone goes too far,” Aiello said.
On Thursday, the NFL reiterated a warning to all coaches against going too far when disrespecting replacement officials. Until action is taken, however, we don’t expect anything to change. There’s too much riding on these games, and too much pressure on these coaches to win.
