Will Ferrell is a popular actor among college basketball coaches. Earlier this preseason at Kansas’ Late Night at the Phog, head coach Bill Self reenacted Ferrell’s iconic role as Ron Burgundy from the movie Anchorman. He also played the role of Ferrell’s Frank “The Tank” Ricard character during the team’s version of the initiation scene from the movie Old School.
On Saturday night, Kent State head coach Rob Senderoff decided to dress as Ferrell’s basketbal playing character, Jackie Moon from the movie Semi-Pro, during the program’s Hoop ‘n’ Halloween event.
In the 2008 movie, Moon — the owner, coach and player of the fictional Flint Tropics — led his team to a fourth-place finish in the ABA. Senderoff had his Golden Flashes finish one spot better in the MAC East Division standings, ending the 2012-2013 campaign with a 21-14 (9-7 MAC) record.
Kent State starts the season on Nov. 8 against Ohio Northern.
