Lynn Marshall, the wife of Wichita State basketball head coach Gregg Marshall, was forced to leave the Bankers Life Fieldhouse stadium in Indianapolis due to her erratic behavior recently.
During the NCAA game in which the Shockers faced an intense loss to Kentucky in a 65-62 score, Mrs. Marshall began cursing f-bombs and acting wildly.
Security repeatedly approached and talked to Mrs. Marshall about her escalating, out-of-character behavior before finally resorting to escorting her to her husband’s news conference. According to NCAA spokesman David Worlock, it is standard procedure to escort a coach’s wife to her husband postgame.
Drew Franklin, a reporter at the game, recorded a video of Marshall excessively chanting “defense” while leaning over the railing in despair when one of the players missed a shot or made an error.
Franklin wrote the following in a post for Kentucky Sports Radio:
“I guess it didn’t make anyone else upset when she told Malik Monk to get in the weight room or told Isaiah Briscoe to buy some bigger shorts or told Calipari to “shut the f*** up” or told Roger Ayers he is garbage or any of the other classy things she yelled between F-bombs.”
Marshall’s loud and obnoxious behavior may have been influenced by alcohol.
One reporter named Kennedy Hardman tweeted: “Gregg Marshall’s wife is the drunkest individual at Bankers Life… just said ‘Come On, Let’s F@&k some S@$T Up.'”
Team spokesman Bryan Holmgren would not comment on the situation to the Daily Mail.
