Man presented fake job offers to pro coaches

  • A Los Angeles man was arrested after he called about a dozen NFL, NBA as well as college football coaches in order to offer them fake jobs. 

    Reports suggest that Kenneth Tarr called Indianapolis Colts coach, Minnesota Vikings head coach, Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator and many more targets. 

    Tarr allegedly recorded the phone calls and was arrested on suspicion of eavesdropping. "I'm amazed that they're returning any of these calls," he told Deadspin. He said in an interview with ABC News that Andy Kaufman and Andy Warhol are nothing compared to him. "People are not in on what I've accomplished."

    Tarr gained popularity by inventing fake personas and hence being invited to reality TV and talk shows.
