Hopefully the San Francisco 49ers management and Josh McDaniels had a better handshake than this one during Saturday’s interview. Watch McDaniels get denied a hand-shake as then Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley, says “There’s a lot of sh*t being talked about you!” Watch the video below.

What was Haley talking about? While he never went into specifics, those familiar with the incident believed it was due to McDaniels knowing the Chiefs game-plan beforehand (SpyGate) though never confirmed.

Haley also had a run-in with San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin when the two were in Arizona together.
