Ouch! Army player nearly knocks out coach with headbutt while still wearing helmet

CINCINNATI — If you are going to headbutt your football coach, it’s a good idea to remove your helmet.

An offensive lineman for Army nearly knocked an assistant coach silly when he decided to give him a headbutt during Saturday’s game against Cincinnati, CBS Sports reported. Senior offensive lineman Mike Johnson was walking toward the sideline after the Black Knights made a first down when fullbacks coach Mike Viti tried to give him a hug.

Instead, Johnson popped Viti with his helmet, staggering his coach.

Viti lost his balance and had to be helped to his feet by another staff member, and another player helped the coach remain upright, CBS Sports reported.

Army was also knocked off its feet, falling 24-10 to Cincinnati.
