How about that time Pete Carroll took his shirt off during an NFL Draft interview

Months before the NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks were doing their homework on a number of college prospects through the combine and interview process.

The most exciting of those interviews had to come when it came time to sit down with Ole Miss wide receiver DK Metcalf, whose shirtless post-workout picture went viral and reached legendary tall-tale status quickly after hitting social media.

One of the scouts who ushered Metcalf into the hotel meeting room where Seahawks decision makers waited for him convinced him to take off his shirt as he entered the room. As any receiver with dreams of playing in the NFL would, Metcalf happily did just that.

The real fun begins when Pete Carroll decides he won't be intimidated...and decides to take his shirt off as well.

"Well I was surprised that he came into our interview with his shirt off," Carroll explains in the bottom tweet. "I'm serious. He did. He came in with his shirt off, and it kind of pissed me off, so I took my shirt off too. Not for long though," he joked.

See that moment, and Carroll's explanation, in the clips below.
