Barry Switzer has bashed Johnny Manziel and said he'd never recruit a white quarterback on different radio shows this week.

Barry Switzer, the former coach of the Oklahoma Sooners and Dallas Cowboys, has been making waves while making radio rounds this week.

His latest hit came Thursday, when he told WNSR in Nashville that he would never recruit a white quarterback.

Talking about Johnny Manziel, he said:

“I love his ability; Johnny can play. I’ve always said I’d never recruit a white quarterback. The only way I’d ever recruit a white quarterback to play for me was if his mom and daddy would have to both be black, and that’s the only way I would do it.”

He added:

“My offense is a quarterback-fullback offense. I’d have to have a Jamelle Holieway, J.C. Watts (or) Thomas Lott. Those guys are gonna be my quarterbacks, they’re great runners, they’re great ball carriers and … able to pass, complete some, and those guys could. Those guys could throw and run.”

You can listen to Switzer’s interview with the Nashville station here.

Earlier this week, Switzer bashed Manziel on St. Louis’ CBS Sports 920, which you can hear here.

“I don’t like his antics. I think he’s an arrogant little prick. I’ve said that and I’ll say it again. He’s a privileged kid, he’s embarrassed himself, he’s embarrassed his teammates, he’s embarrassed his coaches.”

He then added:

“I would go to Johnny and I would spend time with him, and I’d find out and base my decision on what he has to say in my interview and my gut feeling about him then. This guy has got a little crap in his neck, but I’ve had a lot of renegades … every football team does. That doesn’t mean he ain’t going to be a good player and help win you some championships.”

WTF! I was under the impression that making any statement that any race was better than another race at anything was racist.
