Kliff Kingsbury shares story about Johnny Manziel’s infamous Scooby photo
Kliff Kingsbury was the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M when Johnny Manziel became a household name, so he knows more than most about all the things — good and bad — the quarterback did while in college. Kingsbury could probably tell stories for hours, and he told a great one on Wednesday.
In an appearance on Manziel’s “Comeback Szn” podcast for Barstool Sports, Kingsbury spoke about the infamous photo of Manziel wearing a Scooby-Doo costume at a Halloween party dancing with a woman in her underwear. The photo was apparently taken the night before Texas A&M left for a road game against Mississippi State, and Manziel showed up late the next day.
"As a staff we're thinking, 'damn that chick's hot, good job Johnny' thinking he's going to be on time the next morning…"

The partying antics didn’t seem to impact Manziel’s game-day performance. He completed a ridiculous 30-of-36 passes for 311 yards and rushed for another 129 yards and two touchdowns. The Aggies won the game, 38-13.
Of course, Manziel’s love of drinking and partying eventually caught up to him, and he opened up about that recently.
