Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kliff Kingsbury is hoping his college offense translates to the NFL. His players are probably hoping he didn’t bring all of his college tricks with him to the pros.
In a 2016 interview with former NFL player A.J. Hawk, which has recently been making the rounds, the former Texas Tech head coach revealed that he and his assistants would spy on his players with fake “cute girls” social media accounts.
Via AZ Central:
During an August 2016 appearance on “The Hawkcast” podcast with then-Atlanta Falcons linebacker A.J. Hawk, Kingsbury openly revealed he and his Texas Tech coaches would set up fake social media accounts using “cute girls” as avatars to spy on their players.
That’s right, spy.
“We have fake accounts with cute girls that they add right now so we can see what’s going on, who’s tweeting what,” Kingsbury said at the time. “Those are heavily monitored, for sure.”
That might have worked at the college level, but it probably won’t fly in the NFL. Not to mention the fact that NFL players get themselves into plenty of trouble on social media on their own.
Those have to be some very entertaining DM exchanges to read though. Kingsbury should gather a few of the best ones and put them in a book or something.
