BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall confronts Utah fan who says he sucked (Video)
If you have to rush the field after your team comes away with a crucial win early in the season, do so without screaming “you suck!” in the face of the opposing head coach. And if you must scream “you suck!” in the face of the opposing head coach, don’t do it to a guy who is named Bronco Mendenhall.
I admittedly know very little about the BYU head coach, but his name just makes him sound like a guy you don’t want to mess with. As you can see from the video above that Dr. Saturday shared with us, a Utah fan yelled something at Mendenhall as he was being escorted off the field by police officers on Saturday. Typically coaches will ignore this type of bonehead behavior and keep walking, but Bronco is named Bronco for a reason. He gave the kid the death stare and completely caught him off guard.
Patrick Kinahan of 1280 The Zone in Utah explained what happened on Twitter.
“As Bronco Mendenhall left the field a Utah fan screamed he sucked,” Kinahan wrote. “Bronco stared at him and walked toward the fan as police jumped in.”
This was also a game during which Utah fans rushed the field on three separate occasions, so it wasn’t exactly their proudest moment as a group. The important thing here is that it’s doubtful that fan will scream in the face of an opposing coach again — or at least not one with a bad-ass name like Bronco.
