Redskins PR Guy -- I Had a Good Reason ... For Rushing Colt McCoy

EXCLUSIVE


The Washington Redskins PR guy who rushed Colt McCoy away from a live interview with ESPN Deportes tells TMZ Sports there's a good reason he hurried the QB -- he didn't want Colt to miss the coach's postgame speech. 

The interaction went viral -- with the Redskins PR guy famously screaming to the reporter, "NO MEANS NO!"

We spoke with Tony Wyllie -- the Senior VP of Communications for the Skins -- who tells us, "We wanted to get Colt in to hear coach's postgame speech."

He adds, "I wasn't denying access. I wanted Colt to hear coach talk. I felt we needed to get him inside."

Wyllie says, "Right after the speech, Colt went out and did the interview. I explained the situation to them. They were happy in the end."

As for the contentious moment, Wyllie says, "Normally we set these [postgame interviews] up before [the end of the game]. They'll say, 'This is who we want to talk to.' They didn't do that." Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
