When Kliff Kingsbury was hired as the head coach at Texas Tech this past winter, it was lauded as both a steal for the school and a win for young bros looking for a big break everywhere. After all, it‚Äôs not often that a school takes a chance in giving a plush head coaching job to any 33-year-old, let alone one that walks around with the swag of your average 30-something at happy hour every Friday night.
Still, questions did remain about Kingsbury‚Äôs hire, specifically on whether or not he was able to discipline a group of football players that were barely older than he was.
Only apparently on Tuesday we got an answer to the question of: ‚ÄúWhat happens when a bro stops being polite and starts getting real?‚ÄĚ And we got it in the most hilarious way possible.
Above is a note Kingsbury left for all his players, as they get set to leave campus for the rest of May. It comes via the Twitter feed of Texas Tech offensive lineman Alfredo Morales, and well, it‚Äôs awesome.
It reads as...

You can get over on one of those old ball coaches, those old guys who don't quite know who Jay-Z is and have somebody else type their e-mails for them.
But Texas Tech football coach Kliff Kingsbury is a single, 33-year-old man. He was barely out of college when Facebook came out. He knows what's up.
So he sent his players a little message as they exited spring football...
College campuses across the country will be sending students home for the summer over the next couple of weeks, which must be a great source of anxiety for coaches. The less time players spend with their teams, the more opportunities they have to get into trouble and out of shape. Texas Tech football coach Kliff Kingsbury is aware of that and is trying to stay ahead of the curve...
Texas Tech‚Äôs new head football coach, Kliff Kingsbury, is just 33-years of age. While he may lack the experience that some of his peers have, he‚Äôs got an advantage on them in the communication department. Kingsbury demonstrated that this week in a letter to his players before they left for summer break.

Message to all...
There is something to be said for time and experience. There is also something to be said for being the next great thing, and Texas Tech thinks they have it in their new and very young head coach--and former football standout--Kliff Kingsbury.
Some have pointed at his age and said he isn't ready to be in charge of a major college football program. In a recent message to his...
This letter to the Texas Tech football team is making sure the Red Raiders know that playing Madden or Call of Duty does not count as working out.
With an offer list consisting of Baylor, Texas Tech, Iowa, Nebraska and others, UTSA isn't necessarily a common name matching up to those programs. That's why you roll the dice!
Over the course of a calendar year, the month of May is essentially the only downtime a college football player gets. Falls are reserved for game days and prep, which immediately roll into bowl season and winter workouts, which becomes spring ball, and eventually summer camp. Therefore, it‚Äôs these pristine few days in May where a college football player gets to kick his feet back...
