Barry Switzer traded in his Mercedes for a Kia

Wednesday February 25th, 2015

Legendary football coach Barry Switzer made an interesting move recently: he traded in his Mercedes for a Kia.

A bold move for sure. You'd think Switzer—one of three head coaches to win both a college football national championship and a Super Bowl—wouldn't be seen in anything below the standard of the luxury German auto.

It's a big get for Kia, however. Midtown Kia in Tulsa, Okla., should get some additional buzz after seeing Switzer push his new Kia 900.
