Most anybody that’s a fan of comedy at least knows who Larry David is. Maybe his name doesn’t ring a bell to casual television fans, but all you have to do is say Seinfeld creator, and then they’ll go oh yeah. David of course was the mastermind behind the legendary 90′s sitcom and most recently he starred in his own show Curb Your Enthusiasm. But apparently David is also a huge football fan when he’s not busy making people laugh. He recently joined Rich Eisen for an episode of his podcast and revealed that he thinks he could be a coach in the NFL. Specifically, an offensive coordinator.
“If they gave me a chance, I could turn the fortunes of an NFL team around. There’s no doubt in my mind. I write stories, so why couldn’t I draw up a play? What’s harder? I think a lot of writers could be offensive coordinators. I know I could do it,” said David.
He also added that he would utilize all four downs on a regular basis and that he feels taking a knee to put a game in overtime instead of going for the win, is a big mistake.
Who knows if David is being serious? I highly doubt it because he tells jokes for a living, but you never know. He’s probably right that it’s harder to write an episode of Curb than to call an NFL game, but I think it’s best that we let both sides stick to their day jobs.
For all you Curb fans, it’s still unknown if season nine will ever happen…
