New football rule, if a team or university needs to hire a new coach then all the candidates must participate in a pro wrestling battle royal to decide the winner. Face to face interviews? Selling yourself to your potential employer? Proven results on the field over the course of your coaching career? No, these are all archaic hiring methods from a time long ago.
When University of Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley fired head football coach Will Muschamp with two games remaining in the season he opened himself up to endless possibilities in order to find his replacement. Thanks to YouTube user James Dator the correct answer is pointing at Foley and calling him to the center of the ring. Dator picked a half a dozen potential coaching candidates for the Florida opening, fired up the WWE 2k15 create-a-player suite, and booked a good old fashioned battle royal.
First we get the pageantry and performance of a pro wrestling entrance. Each wrestler/coach gets his own theme music and TitanTron video intro.
Bah gawd is that? Is that? Is that Steve Spurrier’s music?!?! A former Heisman Trophy winner for the Gators and their coach from 1990 to 2001, Spurrier is one of six contenders in the battle royal. Of course the old ball coach sports a sun visor and wrestling singlet for his ring gear.
Current Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy performs some hypnotizing Dirty Dancing moves on his way to the ring. Ex-Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt harnesses the power of Santino Marella during his entrance. Marshall head coach Doc Holliday is dressed like a cowboy because his name is Doc. He was born to play this role.
Arizona State coach Todd Graham gets to reprise the role of Paul Heyman’s intern, complete with a full business suit and a cell phone from the early 1990s.
All of life’s social issues used to be mirrored through pro wrestling storylines. Now thanks to WWE 2K15 all of life’s hiring decisions can be made through pro wrestling. Throw away your Monster and Career Builder resumes, go practice your WWE 2K15 grappling if you want to land your next dream job.
