Noah Bullard, the Dallas-area photojournalist on the receiving end of the push, wrote in a tweet that he met McCarthy privately, and the coach apologized.
“Thank you to everyone who reached out regarding the Mike McCarthy incident,” Bullard wrote. “I can see how the photo looked like he was pushing me, but it was more of a hand to the lens. I met Coach McCarthy privately in his office and he apologized.”
SOCIAL MEDIA FRIES COWBOYS’ ODD ENDGAME IN LOSS TO 49ERS
It was a rough night for McCarthy and the Cowboys.
Dak Prescott finished 24 of 37 with 206 passing yards, a touchdown pass, and two interceptions. The team had 282 yards total offense and went 5-for-15 for third.
“Just disappointment,” Prescott said of his performance. “Defense gave us the chance to win this game. They played hard against a very, very good attack, a very good team. It is unacceptable that we only put in the points we made. It starts with me. I have to better. There’s no other way to mitigate it.”
McCarthy admitted that emotions were running high.

“It’s very tough,” McCarthy said via Yahoo Sports. “In those moments you just have to be real and sincere. … It’s raw in the locker room right now.”
