Florida coach Jim McElwain in sideline rant to player after penalty: 'F***ing be a man!'

Florida running back Kelvin Taylor scored against the ECU Pirates on Saturday. To celebrate, the junior decided to gloat and then proceeded to do a throat slash gesture. This, of course, merited a penalty from the referees. Florida coach Jim McElwain ignored the touchdown and focused on the penalty.

While Taylor might have gone overboard with the celebration, Jim McElwain definitely took it even further.

The player needed to be talked to, but damn, Jim. Five f-bombs in 30 seconds is a little much. It was clearly enough to make every other person on the sidelines uncomfortable. Even the Florida assistants stopped to listen.

Taylor knows what it's like to have an angry coach. After all, Will Muschamp was his coach last year.
