Want to be an FBS Head Football Coach
http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaaf-dr-s...48693.html

stAte is auctioning off the chance for two fans to be the head coach for our Spring Game in two weeks. The fan in question will get to deliver the pre game and halftime pep talk, choose the starters for his/her given team, call plays, decide whether or not to go for it or punt on 4th down, and will get to communicate via headset with the coaching staff during the game. Winner also gets a powerade bath.

All it takes is a smile and 2500 bucks.

awesome concept. If I had the money, and Southern was doing something like this, I would totally do it.

I think you are thinking of "AD for a day", when every poster on our forum knew what our administration should be doing during the search.

Yes, he did something similar. My impression was that it was mostly shadowing the coach for a day, not really calling plays or picking the lineup. Could be wrong.

Bidding already up to 6,000 bucks and the story has been picked up by CBS, ESPN, and NBC

We're the first school that anyone can think of who has made it a public auction. UNC does this, but its a private thing that only high level donors can bid on.

11,100 at the moment. Hmmm not bad. I love out of the box thinking like this. The real coaches will still be feeding plays anyway. Nice ASU. 04-cheers

We should do a fan head coach at every Spring Game...its not like we'll be able to keep the same coach for two straight Spring Game's anyway!

ESPN story with a full 3 minute video piece about it. Mainly about how big this can be for our marketing. The comments are hilarious...except for the Razorback fans who obviously think its a terrible idea.

Yeah, does the winner get to coach the 2015 spring game at Georgia, Virginia, or wherever this staff goes next year?

RE: Want to be an FBS Head Football Coach
TBD in the AM on cbs sports radio talked about this this morning. Dude was saying that your biggest rivals fan could put in the highest bid and then call plays to get the starting QB blown up. It was just joking around, but thats a national show too, great exposure for you guys.

That's nothing ... Western Carolina lets their fans do this during regular season games.

Awesome idea though!
