Jim Mora Goes Off On Reporter During Press Conference – VIDEO
This is video of UCLA Bruins head coach Jim Mora becoming upset, and ending a press conference on Monday, after he became annoyed with a media member who was talking on the phone.
Mora was addressing the recent tragic death of receiver Nick Pasquale, who was struck and killed by a car early Sunday morning. Shortly after the press conference began, Mora became perturbed with a media video technician who was talking on his cellphone.
Mora stormed out, but later returned to talk with reporters, without television cameras present.
I can’t say I blame Mora for getting upset. Here he was, addressing the tragic death of a player at a press conference, which is difficult enough by itself, and there is some guy talking on his phone.
In defense of the video technician, he did apologize.
Lesson learned…I hope.
