Have you ever been stuck looking for a great gift for someone special? If so, we now have a fantastic idea for you — a signed photo of yourself. At least, that’s the recommendation from Johnny Manziel. Last season, Kliff Kingsbury was the offensive coordinator for Texas A&M when Manziel won the Heisman and the Aggies had great success in the SEC. In fact, the offense was so successful that Kingsbury was suddenly a hot head-coaching prospect — he was hired as the head coach for Texas Tech. Kingsbury had a great relationship with Manziel, and Johnny decided to send him a special thank you gift — yep, a picture of himself: Thanks @JManziel2 for the photo. Love it! Excited to see the encore. Keep grinding. pic.twitter.com/sXDcv30ZhT — Kliff Kingsbury (@TTUKingsbury) June 20, 2013 The personal note reads: “Coach Kliff, Keep the swag up and v-necks deep! You’re the man! ~ Johnny Manziel, ’12 Heisman” Honestly, this is probably a gift that Kingsbury will treasure — it is a personal, hand-written note from a very special pupil. But it’s still humorous to point out that Manziel thought sending a picture of himself was the best “thank you” possible.
