Kirk Herbstreit blasts football drill: 'Fire the coaches immediately'
Kirk Herbstreit has never been one to hold his tongue when giving out his opinion on any football subject. So, when the ESPN college football analyst saw a viral video of a so-called football drill done by a high school, let’s just say Herbie was not thrilled, to say the least.
Herbstreit shared his thoughts on Twitter.
What is this drill called???
How to make kids quit playing football for the enjoyment of a few idiot little league coaches. Parents do your homework-DO NOT ALLOW your kids to play for coaches that do drills like this. This IS NOT FOOTBALL!!!!
Fire the coaches immediately!! https://t.co/EtUJzAsGRR

Some fans in the comment section thought Herbstreit was overreacting to the video, while others told tales of how some of them ran the same type of drills when they played football. A lot of people, however, were on Herbstreit’s side.
