Play around on social media long enough and you’ll find some strange things.

That’s exactly what one man did and noticed that the University of North Dakota was in search of a new head coach for their football program. Now, granted, North Dakota isn’t exactly a hot spot for football activity but a bit strange to see the school looking for head coaching applicants on Twitter.

Regardless, that’s what they did and that opened the door for Christopher McComas, who hilariously decided to apply for the job because of his impressive Madden video game skills.

Not only did McComas apply for the job, but he wrote a letter to athletic director Brian Faison and included a presentation complete with Madden plays, many of them nothing more than the famed ‘Hail Mary’ as his plan was to ‘chuck the pigskin’.

My football philosophy is basically an attacking one. We’re going to give AIR RAID a whole new definition. Theoretically how many times do you think a team can pass in a game? Challenge accepted. We’re going 5 wide, chucking the pigskin all over the place. Never punt. Onside every time. Chip Kelly will be calling me to learn my offense. We will put on an exciting brand of football, we will pack them into the Alerus Center night in and night out, go ahead and blow the roof off the place and add about 35,000 seats to that place.
