Applicant for college coaching job cites Madden skills

Chuck the pigskin

As the resident Destructoid staff North Dakotan, I feel oddly obligated to report whenever there's videogame news that can be tenuously tied to my home state. As such, the University of North Dakota had a recent applicant for its vacant football coach position who alluded to his extensive experience with the NCAA and Madden games as his credentials to be considered as a serious candidate.

In his cover letter (that was, frankly, pretty great) Christopher McComas boasted that he used to dominate with the Buffalo Bills on Sega Genesis. Once he moved onto the PlayStation, he transformed Marshall University from a middling program to a perennial national powerhouse. That's football savvy at its finest.

However, the best part about his letter of interest was his proposed plan of attack. Under his "Air Raid" offense, his team would see how often they could pass the football. "We're going five-wide. Chucking the pigskin all over the place. Never punt," McComas said. He even included a PowerPoint presentation that included a big picture strategy for winning -- "Recruit great players, win a lot of games, recruit more great players, win more games."

Well, I'm sold. Go ahead and sign this guy up, UND. He has the sort of vision that will (probably) be wildly successful and lead to untold championships. And when that happens, it can all be traced back to videogames.
