Kliff Kingsbury says he flirts with moms of recruits

New, comments

Kliff Kingsbury's dreaminess is a gift on the recruiting trail. Or is it a curse?

Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Spo

Here at SB Nation, we consider ourselves leaders in Texas Tech Coach Kliff Kingsbury Is Attractive news. There was the time he was on Jeopardy because he looks like Ryan Gosling, the time Kliff Kingsbury slapped a butt, the time Kliff Kingsbury marketed v-necks, etc.

Anyway, we bring you an update, via an interview on the Dan Le Batard Show (via 24/7)

The first question Kingsbury was asked was if any single moms of recruits have flirted with him, and the coach was open.

"Yeah," he said, laughing. "You've got to play to your strengths. So I kind of encourage that a little bit. It's part of the deal."

Recruiting is a tough business, and colleges should seek to grab every advantage they can get. The question is: is this actually an advantage? Sure, moms have a big say in where their kid goes to school, but some players will probably be more on the "YO COACH STOP HITTING ON MY MOM" side of things.
