Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is a polarizing figure, especially as people begin to discuss whether or not he will be able to succeed at the next level.

While we will have to wait and see if Manziel has what it takes to be an NFL quarterback, it is safe to say that former Oklahoma and NFL head coach Barry Switzer is not a fan of Johnny Football.

During an appearance on a radio show in St. Louis, Switzer took the opportunity to once again slam Manziel and point out that he believes the Aggies star is an “arrogant little prick.”

“I don’t like his antics. I think he’s an arrogant little (vulgarity), I’ve said that, I’ll say it again,” Switzer told The Morning After radio show in St. Louis.

“He’s a privileged little kid. He’s embarrassed himself, he’s embarrassed his teammates, his program, he’s embarrassed his coach. And they’ll all have to defend him because they have to coach him. I know how it works. I spent 40 years in the game so I know how it works.”

There are plenty of “arrogant pricks” in the NFL, so that won’t directly affect if Manziel can succeed, but what will play a part is whether or not Manziel will be able to take the coaching.
