Liberty University men’s basketball coach, Ritchie McKay, joins us to talk about the relationship between coaches and officials. From a coach’s perspective, how should officials be prepared to officiate a game? From an officials perspective, how should a coach be managed in tough situations? Coach McKay has four observations to pass along to officials. They are:
- Coaches see the outcome of the game as a reflection of themselves.
- Officials need to come prepared.
- Officials must work together as a crew to communicate effectively.
- Coaches have long memories.
