The Guy Who Fixes Tablets for NFL Coaches | Hardest Jobs in Sports


– Microsoft Surface tablets,
every NFL team uses them and every game someone
smashes or breaks them. And I’m the guy who fixes them. Fixing Surface tablets
is a busy, busy job. NFL coaches are all old men. Most of them have Hotmail accounts. Tablets are not a good fit. Coaches always complain
that tablets aren’t working. But they’re the ones who break them, usually by smashing them. You can’t fix that. I spend most of my day
filling out warranty cards, or just ordering new ones, it’s easier. I don’t really have peers. Maybe the guy who fixes
the coaches’ headsets. What a cakewalk, those
things are made to be thrown. I didn’t realize the NFL
Chief Technology Officer meant teaching Andy Reid
that swiping doesn’t mean peeling the screen off. Oh, I could tell you some stories. Rex Ryan’s tablet is
full of pop-ups he got for foot porn websites. Pete Carroll puts his gum in the USB port. Jack del Rio just keeps
writing on his with a marker. Chip Kelly, Chip Kelly actually knows
a lot about these things. Belichick ranted about the
tablet for five minutes. I mean, he didn’t really talk,
he just frowned and mumbled. But for Belichick that’s a rant. I just want to tell these
guys it’s not the tablet, it’s you. But also, why don’t we just use iPads? (lively instrumental music)
