Video gamer's clever coaching application Published: December 13, 2013

Chris McComas doesn't have much of a shot at getting the football head coaching job at North Dakota. But he had some free time and figured he might as well give it his funniest shot.

Yahoo Sports reports McComas works at Marshall University as a systems integration specialist and when he saw the vacancy posted on Twitter, he sent in a hilarious cover letter and nine-slide PowerPoint presentation to convince UND Athletic Director Brian Faison he was the man for the job. He touted his video game experience with Thurman Thomas in Tecmo Bowl and his recruiting prowess in NCAA Football. And his teams would throw the ball.
