Tony Romo attends Mavericks game, yells at ref, helps coach
Tony Romo made an appearance at Friday night’s Dallas Mavericks game, yelling at the referee and acting as Rick Carlisle’s assistant.
Romo, who’s getting closer to a return to the Cowboys, sat courtside, right behind the Dallas bench. Apparently, he got his assistant coaching on.

For his part, Carlisle didn’t seem to mind Romo’s so-called coaching.
“He’s into it, I’ll give him that,” Carlisle said after the game, via the Dallas Morning News’s SportsDay. “He’s involved. I felt like I was on the sidelines of a Cowboys game a couple times there. He’s talking to me about what’s going on. What’s on the stats. The same stuff he’s doing on the sideline. We don’t have headsets otherwise we’d offer him one.”
Between coaching and yelling at referees, Romo seems to have combined some of the most obvious qualities of Mark Cuban and Carlisle. Maybe there’s a future in the game for him after he’s done playing football.
