Ricky Williams has never been shy when it comes to talking about his love for marijuana. He's all for it, and he's not afraid to talk about how much he enjoys it. But now that he's working as an assistant college football coach at the University of Incarnate Word, you would think that he would be a little bit more cautious when it comes to endorsing weed. But guess what? He's not.

In an interview with Campus Insiders recently, Williams was asked about whether or not he talks to the players he coaches about his "Achilles heel," which is apparently his love for weed. But rather than offer up a politically correct answer, Williams kept it real when he provided his response.

"I don't agree that it was an Achilles heel," he said. "I kind of think it was more like spinach for Popeye."

That's right, folks. He kind of thinks it was more like spinach for Popeye. We can already hear the UIW head coach now…

Ha. We respect your honesty, Ricky. But you may have kept it a little bit too real here, especially now that you're representing not just yourself but also a university.
