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."
