SJSU coach, an ex-MC Hammer backup dancer, gets down to 'U Can't Touch This'
Spartans running backs coach Alonzo Carter showed he still has the moves
No two college football coaches approach spring practice the exact same way. But one thing they all have in common is having fun. When you’re demanding as much as you are from players 365 days a year, you have to break it up from time to time.
Breaking out dance moves from the past is one way to show players a good time, just ask San Jose State running backs coach Alonzo Carter, who showed players he still had it with a rendition of MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This.”
Thing is, Carter actually used to be a backup dancer for MC Hammer. A 2009 feature on the coach from the East Bay Express documented his career.
The year was 1992, and at the time, Carter was 25 years old and had just ended his career as the lead dancer and head choreographer for Oakland’s MC Hammer, the multiplatinum-selling hip-hop artist and dancer. Carter toured with Hammer and starred in many of his videos, including “U Can’t Touch This,” one of the most famous dance music videos of all time.
Here’s the original video.
