Swizter was upset with how Manziel treated his head coach, Kevin Sumlin, in the Aggies' 52-31 victory over the Rice Owls last Saturday. Texas A&M incurred a 15-yard penalty following Manziel's touchdown pass to Mike Evans after the former taunted some Rice players.    

Manziel was seen walking past Sumlin after the coach tried to lecture him on what happened. 

Switzer wouldn't have any of it, per ESPN Radio

"I'm certainly disappointed in his actions. For him to act so arrogant, I wanted to jerk his face mask and I wanted to grab him. Of course you can get fired for that now; in the old days you could get away with that. It's the world we live in. It's a misplaced value system. When I see this happen I wonder where the core value system comes from, if he has a core value system. This young man needs a damn hell of a lot of development." 

His comments follow those of former Notre Dame Fighting Irish head coach Lou Holtz and former Detroit Lions president and CEO Matt Millen, who now both work as ESPN college football analysts.

Holtz voiced his displeasure over Manziel's actions on ESPN's "Final Verdict." He said,"How would I have handled it? I would have grabbed him by the throat. That's not the right thing to do."  

On the other hand, CBS Sports' Gregg Doyel notes ,"Millen said he wanted to kick Manziel's rear end with his 'size 13 boot' because Manziel had taunted Rice on Saturday."  

However, Sumlin confirms Manziel didn't ignore him, per a September 4 report from ESPN's Sam Khan, Jr.  

"When he came off the field, basically I made two statements to him, neither one of which should he have responded to. They weren't questions. They were direct statements that I can't repeat right now. So what's amazing to me is the perception that he ignored me. The worst thing that could have happened was for him to reply, based on what I told him." 

The Johnny Manziel saga continues.
