Part of the XFL's broadcasting strategy is increased access to players and coaches during games. That even means television crews in the locker room at halftime.

It certainly seems like Los Angeles Wildcats head coach Winston Moss doesn't have much use for that part of the league's media strategy. Just look at how Moss handled being interviewed at halftime of today's game against the Dallas Renegades.

ABC sideline reporter Molly McGrath did a stand-up from inside the Wildcats' locker room. During the clip, Moss can be seen going in front of the live shot to get a cup of water. McGrath plays it off well, using it as an opportunity to ask Moss for an interview.

The coach did give a quick answer to one question, but clearly did not want to speak. This whole scene was pretty awkward.

Moss' Wildcats are currently trailing the Dallas Renegades 13-9 midway through the fourth quarter. A loss would move LA to 0-2 on the young season.

Last week, the Wildcats fell 37-17 in their inaugural game. The franchise responded by firing defensive coordinator Pepper Johnson after only one week and making a major trade.

Moss is not only the head coach of the team, but the general manager as well. It will be interesting to see if any more moves are on the horizon if Los Angeles starts 0-2.
