UConn Basketball Coach Playfully Slaps Player After Interview (Video)

UConn beat Iowa and earned a spot in the Elite Eight on Friday night, so CBS Sport’s Allie LaForce interviewed UConn coach Kevin Ollie after the game. But a few of Ollie’s players decided to have some fun with the moment.

During Ollie’s interview, a couple of UConn players videobombed their coach’s interview. Freshman guard Terrence Samuel tried to inconspicuously make himself seen in the background, but Ollie wasn’t having it. The second-year coach finished his interview and playfully smacked Samuel in the face before he walked away.

The players seemed shocked and amused.

Check it out in the video below.
