AUSTIN (KXAN) — Many Washington Redskins fans will agree that former Longhorn quarterback Colt McCoy made magic during Monday night’s game against the Dallas Cowboys – one that went into an overtime victory. McCoy returned to Texas for the first time since his final college game in his home state.

Still, there’s a Vine from the game that’s making its rounds, and that seems to be a highlight, too. A reporter apparently wanted some post-game talk time with McCoy, but not so fast. A bodyguard — in all reality, Redskins representative and Communications Senior Vice President Tony Wyllie — steps in to interrupt and scoop McCoy away – but not before sharing some words first: “No means no!”
