Mike McDaniel channels inner Tyreek Hill to evade cameraman

Mike McDaniel running away from a cameraman at halftime of Patriots-Dolphins

Tyreek Hill is potentially the fastest man in Florida. Some of his speed may be spilling over to Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel, who showed off his legs Sunday against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass.

The 40-year-old coach finished up his halftime interview with NBC sideline reporter Melissa Stark and began walking towards the Gillette Stadium locker room. That’s when he spotted one of the NBC broadcast cameramen focused on him. McDaniel made a mad dash to the tunnel the moment his eyes spotted the camera.

If there were an NFL combine for current head coaches, McDaniel would probably have one of the best 40-yard dash times.

The cameraman had no chance to catch the Dolphins coach given the added weight of equipment resting on his shoulders. The broadcast worker probably felt like a bulky defensive lineman trying to chase down Tyreek Hill. No chance.

It has not been a good football weekend for camera workers. The Alabama-South Florida game on Saturday featured camerawork that left fans utterly baffled.

But thanks to the help of cameramen who assisted in the replay review for officials on Sunday, the Dolphins were able to seal their 24-17 victory on a wild final play that featured an overturned first down call.

If it was the same cameraman that got the proper angle on the game-ending call, McDaniel probably owes him a beer.
