*TMZ hit up the Redskins’ PR guy who went viral immediately after he strong-armed Colt McCoy out of the arms of an ESPN Deportes reporter who was trying to interview the athlete following the team’s upset win over Dallas.
Tony Wyllie, the Senior VP of Communications, grabbed McCoy with an emphatic, “No means no!” toward the reporter trying to nab the third string QB for a post-game interview.
“We wanted to get Colt in to hear coach’s post-game speech,” Wyllie explained to TMZ. “I wasn’t denying access. I wanted Colt to hear coach talk. I felt we needed to get him inside.”
Wyllie says, “Right after the speech, Colt went out and did the interview. I explained the situation to them. They were happy in the end.”
As for the contentious moment, Wyllie says, “Normally we set these [post-game interviews] up before [the end of the game]. They’ll say, ‘This is who we want to talk to.’ They didn’t do that.”
