Thanks to years of playing the Madden and NCAA Football franchises on Sega Genesis and Playstation, Christopher McComas feels confident he can lead the University of North Dakota to football immortality. His plan? "Chuck the pigskin" and then chuck it some more. Relentless defense. No mercy punting.

McComas saw on Twitter that UND was looking for a new coach and thought, what the hey, let's have some fun. He wrote a letter to athletic director Brian Faison expressing interest in the position and provided his qualifications.

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.


In addition to the letter, he submitted a nine-page Powerpoint presentation getting into the brass tacks of his candidacy.
