Keyshawn Johnson Wakes Mike Ditka After He Falls Asleep On Sunday NFL Countdown: VIDEO

Former NFL coach and ESPN commentator, Mike Ditka, got caught dozing off on December 29th’s live broadcast on ESPN’s Sunday NLF Countdown. When the show cut back to the studio, Keyshawn Johnson gradually realized Ditka was asleep, and nudged Ditka awake about as inconspicuously as possible while on live television.

Ditka coached the Chicago Bears for 11 years and New Orleans Saints for three years. Ditka and Tom Flores are the only two people to win an NFL title as a player, an assistant coach, and a head coach. Ditka was the only individual to participate in both of the last two Chicago Bears’ championships, as a player in 1963 and as head coach in 1985. The Chicago Bears announced in May 2013 that they plan to retire the former head coach’s No. 89 jersey on Monday Night Football, December 9, 2013 during halftime when the Chicago Bears meet the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears franchise said that Ditka’s No. 89 Jersey will be the last number they plan to retire.
