Travis Ford, the head coach of the Oklahoma State Cowboys, appeared in the 1997 Marlon Wayans movie, The 6th Man. Ford played Danny O’Grady, a short, red-headed college basketball player. In the scene above, Ford wants to slap Marlon Wayans, dunks a basketball with the help of a ghost and gets called “Opie.”
After his star-making performance in The 6th Man, Ford walked away from acting to the chagrin of casting directors everywhere. From there he coached at Campbellsville, Eastern Kentucky and UMass before landing at OK State in 2008. You can own a copy of The 6th Man on DVD for $27.29.
