Well, this isn’t weird at all.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kliff Kingsbury is trying to do what Chip Kelly attempted all those years ago by bringing his college type offense to the NFL and hoping to see some success with recently drafted quarterback Kyler Murray.
As for his current players, they are likely hoping that he doesn’t bring all of his tactics from college with him.
In a 2016 interview with former NFL player A.J. Hawk, the former college coach admits that he and some of his assistants would use fake “cute girls” accounts to spy on players on the team.
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.”
One makes you wonder how far he and his assistants actually took it if they contacted the players or hit them in the direct messages to see how they would respond.
One things for sure, professional athletes already get in enough trouble on social media as it is.
