Texas Tech has one of the top football programs in the country, and head coach Kliff Kingsbury is bringing the team’s popularity to new heights. One reason for that is that chicks dig him. Kingsbury has been called a Ryan Gosling clone. Texas Tech students have been known to hold up signs talking about how hot their coach is. Does any of this help with recruiting?
During an appearance on “The Dan LeBatard Show” Tuesday, Kingsbury was asked a number of questions about his good looks. One interesting tidbit came when he was asked if any single moms of recruits flirted with him during recruiting visits.
“Yeah,” Kingsbury said while chuckling, according to CoachingSearch.com’s Chris Vannini. “You’ve got to play to your strengths. So I kind of encourage that a little bit. It’s part of the deal.”
For starters, I hope we’re really only talking about single moms here. Because that would just be messed up if they were married. Secondly, I wonder if this ever backfires on Kingsbury. It sounds like the moms he’s talking about started it and he just went along with it, but wouldn’t that piss you off if your potential college coach was flirting with your mom right in front of you?
As for the Gosling comparisons, Kingsbury said he’ll take it.
“I’ll take that one,” he said. “It can be worse, for sure.”
It certainly can be, and it can also be worse than being Kliff Kingsbury — the 34-year-old college football coach that men want to be and recruits’ moms want to be on.
