Former NCAA football coach and current Pac 12 Network analyst Rick Neuheisel livened up The Dan Patrick Show on Monday with his guitar and voice, as he sang a tribute to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Neuheisel, who performed remotely over the phone, had written the song to the tune of Marty Robbins' country and western classic, "El Paso."

Neuheisel asks "the Danettes" to help sing backup (with no prep) on the song, which plays off the Heisman Trophy winner's good guy, bad guy image on and off the field.
