Larry Izzo, a former linebacker and special teams player with the New England Patriots for a number of Super Bowls, is Bill O’Brien’s special teams coordinator with the Houston Texans, and the head coach went off on his coordinator during action today.
After having to call a timeout because Izzo’s special teams unit only had 10 men on the field, O’Brien came unglued on his Izzo and had to be restrained.
Below is video of the enthusiastic O’Brien.
