German lower division club KFC Uerdingen, trying to raise money to avoid looming bankruptcy, is auctioning off a chance to coach the team for a day. The highest eBay bidder will get to run the team for a 24-hour period that will include a friendly against Rot Weiss Oberhausen. The ad reads: "Whether you're an old school drill sergeant, an introverted tactical fox, an emotional motivator or a completely different kind of coach is entirely up to you."
As of Wednesday, the highest bid to take the helm of the regional fourth division team that is $376,000 in debt is $1,200.
The one-day coach will be assisted by real coach Aleksandar Ristic
Two years ago in another fundraising scheme a 33-year-old insurance salesman bought himself a spot in the KFC Uerdingen's lineup for three minutes in a friendly game against Bayern Munich.
