Louisiana-Lafayette coach Mark Hudspeth looks like he can move a lot of weight in the weight room. He can back up the look too.
Hudspeth, 45, recently bench pressed 370 pounds, an impressive number for a player, but a ridiculous number for a coach.
It's a pretty clean rep too. And we're now eagerly waiting for Hudspeth's squat and deadlift videos.
It's not the first time Hudspeth has showed off his benching skills. Last summer, he bench pressed 225 pounds 25 times. The 225-pound test is a staple of the NFL combine and it would have put him six reps outside the top 15 of 2014 NFL combine participants who did the bench press. (When mimicking the NFL combine, yours truly did two reps. I bow down to Hudspeth's strength.)
He has to be the strongest head coach in college football, right? Some strength coaches may have him beat, but if we're having a FBS head coach bench press contest, we'll take Hudspeth and give everyone else the field. We should have a head coach combine. While Steve Spurrier's hip may prevent him from doing many of the drills, he'd still have some awesome trash talk.
