The USO, working with Morale Entertainment, will soon deploy five of today's top college football coaches to the Persian Gulf as part of a USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour.
Participating in what will be their first tour, the coaches will sign autographs, pose for photos and share their gridiron tactics and strategies with troops.
The USO Tour to Persian Gulf will feature the following college football coaches:
- West Point head coach Rich Ellerson
- University of Oregon head coach Chip Kelly
- Harvard University head coach Tim Murphy
- Texas Tech University head coach Tommy Tuberville
- University of Illinois head coach Ron Zook
The event will be held in Spring 2010 in Germany and South West Asia. Due to security reasons, the countries and tour dates cannot be released at this time.
