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 offensive lineman Alfredo Morales tweeted the photo you see above on Tuesday, which shows a letter Kingsbury sent to all of his players before they went home for break.
“Also we advise you to be active over break as you will need to be ready to work once June rolls around,” the note read. “Sitting at the house playing COD/2K13/Madden against 12 year olds online doesn’t suffice as ‘activity’ even if you claim to ‘wreck shop.’”
Awesome. As a 33-year-old coach, Kingsbury can certainly relate to his players. He knows how 20-somethings act, considering he just was one about four years ago. I’d rather have a coach who tells me not to play video games than one who sends out creepy recruiting messages like this, but that’s just my personal preference. Score one for Kliff.
