Ever argue over the fastest coach on your staff? This staff did, so they held a race

There are two traits nearly every single college football coach shares. They're all ex-athletes, and they're all hyper-competitive. Those traits combine in many wonderful ways, but sometimes they can run counterintuitive against each other.

They are what get coaches arguing about who has a faster 40 time, and they are what drive them to go on the practice field and prove it.

Four Sacramento State coaches - linebackers coach Tyler Almond, wide receivers coach Jason Pollak, offensive coordinator Paul Peterson, and tight ends/special teams coach Fred Kelley - recently settled their debate mano v. mano v. mano v. mano.

I'm not going to give away the result, but let's just say there are no NFL scouts kicking themselves today for overlooking a prospect on the Sacramento State coaching staff.
