Barry Switzer on Johnny Manziel: 'I wanted to jerk his facemask'

Legendary Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer appeared on ESPN Radio’s The Herd Wednesday with Colin Cowherd. He was immediately asked about Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and his actions, especially walking past Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin, in Saturday’s win over Rice.

For him to react the way in front of Coach Sumlin that he did, for him not to stop say, ‘Yes sir,’ stop and stand in front of him, for him to act so arrogant and so above that approach that I wanted to jerk his face mask and I wanted to grab him up and of course you get fired for doing that. But in the old days you could get away with it. I could get away with it 30 or 40 years ago.

Switzer had some more to say about Manziel. You can listen to the entire interview here.
