College Referee Karl Hess Fired Over Racist Remark
[su_right_ad]Karl Hess lost his temper with a Wake Forest fan during a Seton Hall game in Louisville last week.
The booster, Mit Shah, the former chairman of the Wake Forest board of trustees, used his Twitter account to post a quote he attributed to Hess during the game.
“Karl Hess to me at the Wake-Louisville game tonight…’When I’m older I want to sit in your seat & watch your Egyptian ass ref a game’ #Wow”
Shah is the CEO of an Atlanta-based hotel management company. He is of Indian descent but was born in the U.S. and grew up in North Carolina. Shah did not return messages from Yahoo Sports.
To this point, the ACC is the only league to terminate its relationship with Hess. It’s a relationship that dates back more than two decades.
