    There is just something about college basketball that brings out fiery personalities in the coaching field. There are always plenty of coaching moments throughout the season, and surely, this season will be no different.

    With the passion of college hoops at the forefront, there is always a fiery coach right there to do something crazy.

    Here are the top 10 most outrageous coaching moments in college basketball history. 

John Calipari vs. Terrance Jones

    Okay, so cursing isn't that bad and surely it happens all the time, but this just happened to be caught on camera. This was a coaching moment to one of his own players though, so it's not as bad as it looks.

    Steve Alford took it a step up from coach Cal, verbally insulting another team's player. Although it was heated and in-the-moment, Alford apologized and all was better.

This Touch Wasn't Difficult!

    Bruce Pearl got a little close with everyone's favorite sideline reporter Erin Andrews. A lot of guys would love to be this close to the beauty, but Bruce just took this opportunity and ran with it.

    Although it wasn't really feeling up, I would say this is still kind of outrageous and hilarious at the same time.

    Now everyone knows by now that Bob Knight is a tough coach to play for. He demands excellence and wants 100 percent all of the time.

    Well, every once in a while, Knight went a little crazy and got physical with his players. Here is a video of Knight slapping a player.

    All of these are hilarious. The "General" at his finest. Say what you want about the man, but he was and is a heck of a coach. It's too bad his stint at Indiana ended so badly, or the program wouldn't be where it is today.

    Knight is a character. 

Really Bo?

    One year, Bo Ryan did the Soulja Boy dance as a promotion for the season. The video will never get old and will crack you up every single time, but the question is: Is this really Bo Ryan or is it the Grinch? 

This One Is a Classic

    These two coaches get into it big time. If I were Coach Cal, I'd still be watching my back for Chaney in the parking lot. 

Like Father, Like Son

    Pat Knight ran completely to the other side of the court to get in the official's face. I think this speaks volumes about the actions you teach your children. I'm looking at you, Bobby. At least he didn't throw in a chair.

Yet Another Indiana Coach Getting Pissed off

    Mike Davis was not generally known for his angry attitude, and was in fact hired to replace one of the most outspoken coaches in history (Bob Knight). However, Davis learned quickly to get fiery when he coached at Indiana. This is one of the best ejections I've ever seen. 

Well, Everyone Knew This Was Coming

    Bobby Knight obviously has the most infamous moment in history: He threw the chair. Every college basketball fan has seen this before, and it just never gets old. 

    Thanks for joining me in reliving these great moments!
