Ted Johnson on Caleb Williams crying: “I’d be hesitant to bring him into my program”
During this morning’s Toucher & Rich radio program, Ted Johnson shared his thoughts on Caleb Williams, the USC quarterback who was seen crying in his mother’s arms after their loss to Washington.
Ted Johnson expressed some concerns about Caleb’s behavior. He mentioned how he jumped into the stands and cried in a public setting after the game. He also found it odd that Caleb mentioned wanting to go home and cuddle with his dog during his postgame press conference.
“My first thought is that I’d be somewhat hesitant to bring him into my program. Not only did he jump into the stands and cry in his mother’s arms, which, hey, man, you know, it’s 2023, man. I mean, a grown man can cry. It’s all right. But in a public forum like that, after a loss like that, and then his comments on the podium, we were almost, you know, almost as bad when he said in his postgame press conference. “
Ted Johnson made the point that a player’s mental makeup is crucial, and he recalled how he had criticized Johnny Manziel’s behavior in the past, which later proved to be a valid concern.
