Player-run practices are over and coaches are back in coaching mode. While the focus is on football, developing team chemistry is a part of the responsibility of every coach, so team-building exercises are a part of any preseason plan.

Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin knows this.

Vanderbilt's players and coaches recently held their "dance-off" before the start of a team meeting during fall camp and posted footage of the event on YouTube. 

The result was legendary.

The dance-off may be for the players, but Commodore offensive line coach Herb Hand (who is a great follow on Twitter, if you're into that sort of thing), stole the show with a flawless rendition of "The Worm" (0:22 mark).

Hand displays good form, brilliant execution and impeccable style in his interpretation of the classic dance move.

This is the beauty of YouTube and the Internet. This kind of stuff has always gone on, but now it's able to be distributed to a mass audience in short order. It also shows that lighter side of fall camp, and adds personality to the sport that largely went unnoticed.

Excellent work, Coach Hand.
