De’Veon Smith’s love for pizza apparently cost him a job in the USFL.

Smith, who played running back at Michigan and had an impressive stint at the XFL, was apparently cut by the Pittsburgh Maulers in the USFL over a situation about pizza.

According to Smith, he requested pizza from a hotel worker instead of the chicken salad that was being served to him. The hotel worker told him he couldn’t have pizza and asked if that would be a problem, and Smith claims that he said “yes” and walked away.

Maulers head coach Kirby Wilson felt that Smith was disrespecting the hotel worker and immediately cut Smith without hearing out Smith’s side of the story.
