Arkansas’ new offensive line coach, Kurt Anderson, made sure his first in-home visit was an eventful one.
After spending three years coaching the offensive line for the Buffalo Bills, the massive man boarded a private plane with Bret Bielema and the offensive coordinator to visit a future member of his offensive line, Jake Heinrich.
The thing about private planes is that they are rarely very big, and often difficult to enter and exit. It was a tight squeeze for Anderson, much too tight for his pants. They split right down the middle. On an even tighter schedule and with few alternatives in Urbandale, Iowa, Anderson ended up opting for a pair of sweatpants.
The story is even better coming from the recruit.
“I think they were jammed packed into that little private plane,” Heinrich said. “Sounds like he got a little too acrobatic. … The pants weren’t cooperating.”
The three coaches had to stop and get Anderson some pants before arriving for the visit. He ended up buying sweatpants, which Heinrich approved.
“If you ask me, that’s a better deal,” he said. “That’s a lot more comfortable.”
At least it isn’t the first time a recruit has received a visit from a guy in sweats.
