Since there was contact, a PF is the correct call.
I agree. This is what I have been taught by the vets that I have worked with this year. Whenever you can, in this type of situation (rough/cheap play very close to the end of the play and far from the action) try to make it a dead ball foul. Remember, the whistle doesn't necessarily end the play. So if the coach says "I saw that flag on the ground before the whistle, that's a live ball foul!" you can explain that the player going out of bounds, going down, incomplete pass, etc ended the play, not the whistle.
