10 Coaches Who Would Be Great at Selling Used Cars

Not all coaches are great at their jobs. As a result, some of them are forced to pursue other careers. While the topic of this slideshow is obviously a joke, I do feel that some of these coaches would be great at selling used cars.

Let's be honest, used car salesmen don't have the greatest of reputations. Some of them are known for swindling people into bad deals and for putting them in crap cars. They're also known for bad hair, bad suits, bad breath, bad manners and many other bad things. I'm in no way trying to say that being a used car salesman is a bad thing. I'm merely saying that some of the guys who choose it as a profession, happen to be very stereotypical. That's the case with any job, though.

College coaches have to put on their salesman caps all the time to land recruits. That's really where the concept for this slideshow came from. But there's no denying that some of the most hated coaches, are also really good recruiters. It's part of the reason they're hated. People hate players, teams and coaches that always win. The teams with the best recruits typically win the most in college sports.

If you gave all the coaches on this list a job as a used car salesman when they retired, I'm fully confident that they'd all be very successful. Some more than others, but I have no doubt that they could move some product. With all that in mind, here are 10 coaches who could sell used cars after their coaching days come to an end:

Ryan could scare anyone into buying a used car from his lot. Are you going to tell that face you're not interested?

Meyer would only work at a luxury used car lot so he could keep up the illusion that he puts out a good product.

Calipari would sell really good cars. You know, the ones that only stay on the lot for one year or less.
