LSU beat reporter had a hilarious exchange with Brian Kelly about being late

·2 min read

It only took one game at the helm for LSU coach Brian Kelly to go viral once again.

This is nothing new for Kelly, who has already become a bit of a larger-than-life character since arriving in Baton Rouge with his affected southern accent and turntable dancing videos.

After the Tigers’ season-opening loss to Florida State, Kelly called out The Advocate beat writer Leah Vann for “being late,” joking that she owed him $10.

“Maybe if you won, I’d be on time,” Vann snapped back.

A clip of the funny exchange made the rounds on social media over the last two days.

Vann provided more context on Twitter, and though it can be hard to tell with Kelly’s, shall we say, dry delivery, it seems the exchange was a joke and both Vann and Kelly smoothed things over after the fact.

I’m just going to put this out there: I’m officially taking a “pro-riffing” stance between coaches and members of the media. Give me more of this.
