Larry David would like to join Jets coaching staff

Wednesday January 7th, 2015

The New York Jets are in the market for a new coaching staff, and comedian Larry David thinks he might be just the man for the job.

The Curb Your Enthusiasm star told Howard Stern that he feels like he has what it takes "with a little studying" to become either the offensive or defensive coordinator.

When the host asks David what makes him think he has the necessary skills to lead the struggling Jets offense, the Seinfeld creator jokingly responds, "When I was a kid and we used to play football in the parking lot I would design very good plays."

David has previously met with Jets coaches and officials in the run up to the draft to offer his opinion on possible picks, according to The New York Times.

Listen below as David makes his case to join the Jets, and explains why teams should go for it more often on fourth down.
