After defeating Seth Gross on points to win the NCAA National Championship, University of Iowa wrestler Cory Clark celebrated in a rather hilarious way, but belly to belly tossing University of Iowa assistant coach Terry Brands.

Brands runs onto the mat to congratulate his wrestler with a hug, which results in the national champ landing a belly to belly suplex on his coach.

Check out the hilarious video above!

According to the young champion, his coach actually wanted his athlete to throw him. He spoke to media members, via HawkCentral:

“I freaked out. I didn’t know what to do; kind of out of it out there,” he said Saturday night. “(Brands) said ‘Throw me. I go, ‘No.’ He goes, ‘Throw me.’ I said, ‘All right.’ I grabbed him and threw him. So that’s what happened.

“I don’t know if he wants you — he probably wants it to seem like I tossed him for some reason. I didn’t want to throw him; he wanted thrown. He was fired up.”
