    ... who hit a player from the opposing team on the sidelines?

    I seem to remember a game - against the Steelers, maybe? - when the WR caught a pass and went on running for 20 yards or so, and got nailed by one of the coaches on the sidelines who raised an elbow. I think it was Pepper Johnson... anyone has a recollection of that incident?

    Ohio St coach Woody Hayes punched a Clemson player out of bounds and was fired because of it. Probably not what you're thinking of but similar situation.

    I'm old enough to remember this--a 60 or 70 something Woody Hayes punching out an opposing LB on the sidelines after the guy had intercepted Woody's QB and stepped out of bounds. Truly one of those defining moments when you see a sports legend who's always been a bit scary just go into full on dementia-ridden meltdown before your eyes. Don't think he ever coached another game after that.

    As far as Pepper, I never heard about that, but I hope it's true. :p :rocker:

    Pepper Johnson did play at Ohio State ... though it must have been long after Woody Hayes and his three yards and a cloud of dust were gone.

    If he did, I hope it WAS the Steelers and I hope it was Hines Ward. That would be awesome.
