Sean Payton & Dirk Koetter Share Testy Handshake – VIDEO
Things got a little testy between New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter on Sunday.
The two had an awkward exchange during their postgame handshake after the Saints' 31-24 loss to the Bucs on Sunday.
The two were shook hands, but seemed to put a little extra emphasis on their respective slaps, which were a little harder than necessary.
And those smiles! Yes, a little less than genuine.
This goes back the first meeting between the two teams, a 30-10 win by the Saints, in a contest that saw Bucs receiver Mike Evans nail Saints rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore with a blindside shot that resulted in a personal foul, and then later a one-game suspension.
Watch the less than cordial exchange between Patyon and Koetter, below, courtesy of Jeff Tewksbury of Tampa's WTVT-TV:
Interesting exchange between Dirk Koetter and Sean Payton following the game. The shoulder pats getting a little aggressive. Sounds like unresolved matters from the week 9 scuffle involving Winston, Evans and Lattimore. (credit @JeffTewksFox13 for video) #Bucs pic.twitter.com/IWDdml3LLM
