Gene Chizik: Disapproving dad photobombs daughter's prom pic

Published On: Apr 08 2014 11:35:25 AM HST


Twitter user @jeridickey tweeted this photo over the weekend of her son getting ready to go to prom with famous football coach Gene Chizik's daughter.

Gene Chizik is probably best known for coaching Auburn University to college football's national championship in 2010.

But the Internet just might change that on Tuesday.

Chizik, who also was an assistant at Central Florida and even coached at Florida's Seminole High, is pictured in the background of his daughter's prom photo with his arms crossed and a generally disapproving look on his face.

The photo (above) was tweeted out by her date's mother, @jeridickey, who asked her Twitter followers, "You think my son will come home from prom alive?"

Subsequent tweets that followed over the weekend included: "HA HA YES it is real, but he really does like my I hope he was photobombing. Mrs Chiz took it b4 they left" and "For the record my son made it out alive!"

The photo prompted a deluge of reaction -- including responses from national media outlets -- as well as a Photoshop of Chizik looking on disapprovingly in the famous black-and-white photo of the World War II parade kiss in Times Square.
