SEC coaches are all about business 99 percent of the time. But that other one percent can produce some real gold for fans.
Whether it be Nick Saban’s T-rex College Football Playoff celebration or Gus Malzahn’s classic “U Can’t Touch This” performance at a Six Flags amusement park, even the seemingly uptight leaders have proven their capable of showing human emotions through dance.
Since it’s May and sadly we’re months away from college football kicking off, Reddit user HollaHawks decided it was a good time for a compilation video of SEC coaches cutting the rug, as they say.
And let’s give him some credit– it’s fantastic. Going deep into the archives, he pulled out some of the best SEC coaches dancing moments and mashed them together with those of the Big Ten persuasion for a little comparison.
Check it out:
- As our resident Champion of Life, Tennessee coach Butch Jones also showed he is among the league’s best dancing coaches.
- Vanderbilt’s Derek Mason became an instant classic for his sideline dance in the final moments of the Commodores’ win against Tennessee last season. If he was willing to show off those moves in front of a packed stadium and a national television audience, just imagine what he’s like at a friend’s wedding.
- Nick Saban and Urban Meyer are arguably the top two coaches in college football, and though they may claim to like to dance, they’re as bad at it as you could imagine. That’s likely because they know dancing well does not bring them closer to a national title on the field, which is the only thing on either of their minds. Back to the film room, fellas.
- New Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck may be the best dancer of them all, but it seems unfair to give him some sort of crown without making him go through at least one season of the rigors of heading up a Power 5 program. The weight of responsibility has to impact your skills on the dance floor, one would think.
