Sometimes, good humor trumps everything. Such is the case with the North Dakota football coaching search. A man who could be considered (at least in his own mind) for the NCAA and Madden Hall of Fame, applied for the position after seeing the need on Twitter. This is when the hilarity ensues, as he submitted a powerpoint presentation to athletic director Brian Faison along with a letter with his desire to be on the sidelines.
First, a snippet of the letter (via the Grand Folks Herald):
My football philosophy is basically an attacking one. We’re going to give AIR RAID a whole new definition. Theoretically how many times do you think a team can pass in a game? Challenge accepted. We’re going 5 wide, chucking the pigskin all over the place. Never punt. Onside every time. Chip Kelly will be calling me to learn my offense. We will put on an exciting brand of football, we will pack them into the Alerus Center night in and night out, go ahead and blow the roof off the place and add about 35,000 seats to that place.
Confidence like none other. Here are some screenshots of his plan laid out in PowerPoint:
This is excellent work. If you clicked on the presentation, you will see that Wayne Fontes is one of his idols. Seriously, how did that man never get a second look as a head coach, but both Rich Kotite and Bruce Coslett did? He’s the only Lions head coach with a playoff victory in over 50 years! Let’s move on. . .
We hope that Christopher McComas gets serious consideration. I mean, this isn’t as much of a joke as that team anyway, right?
