VIDEO: Ex-Buckeye scores, knocks down opposing coach, starts brawl in CFL game
Of all the ways to celebrate a touchdown, Duron Carter might’ve picked the worst thing.
The former Buckeye receiver and son of Ohio State legend Cris Carter caught a touchdown in a Canadian Football League game. He then proceeded to walk over to the opposing team’s sideline, where he put a shoulder into Ottawa coach Rick Campbell and knocked him down.
What ensued after was a melee:

It was an ugly, ugly incident that got Carter tossed. It’s unknown what prompted the bump, but coming from Carter, it wasn’t completely surprising.
He only spent one year in Columbus, where he was sixth on the team in receiving yards as a true freshman. After he was declared academically ineligible, he attended three other colleges over the next three years because of various off-the-field issues. Carter actually signed a deal with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015, but he was cut right before the start of the season.
A viral incident like this won’t make any NFL teams come calling anytime soon.
