Former Packers coach Mike McCarthy apparently has apologized for his actions at a boys basketball game between Notre Dame Academy and Pulaski.

McCarthy's stepson plays for Notre Dame Academy, which lost Tuesday night against Pulaski. After the game, McCarthy apparently had a "verbal tirade" directed toward game officials.

Here is the statement released Thursday by Notre Dame Academy athletic director Steph Mathu:

"Notre Dame Academy is founded on the values of faith, respect, responsibility, service, and trustworthiness. The behavior exemplified by the parent at Tuesday night’s game is unacceptable at athletic events and does not reflect our institution as a whole.

"Last night, a Notre Dame Academy administrator received a call of apology from the parent involved. We appreciate his outreach and we look forward to moving ahead in a faith-centered and esteemed fashion.

"We thank all officials in athletic contests, especially in our conference and state, for the time and commitment they dedicate to our student-athletes."
