Ashton Kutcher a football coach

Ashton Kutcher has signed on to be a high school football coach — nope, not in a movie — in real life. He interviewed for the job of assistant coach for the freshman football team at Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles and got the job. Kutcher, 30, played football in high school himself. He’ll attend practice five days a week as well as games. The team has played one game since Kutcher signed on, winning 21 to 12. “He’s put in the time to learn our schemes and systems, and so far he’s been a pleasant surprise as a coach,” Barzdukas told “He’s a great communicator.” In case you were wondering, Kutcher is getting paid for this gig. “We don’t have volunteer coaches,” says Barzdukas, “but I can tell you he’s not in it for the money.”

    Just like regular Joe’s dream of becoming a celeb….I’m sure many celebs dream of just being an average Joe….
    Gonna give him the benifit of doubt and say he’s doing it to become a regular schmoe.

    Maybe this will mean we won’t be seeing much of him anymore, which is just fine with me!

    I liked him on That 70’s Show, but he is too much of a little boy, hasn’t really become a man yet, and at his age I find that really irritating. Not that I hate him or anything, I just don’t really care for him that much. Which is weird, because I love Jim Carrey. Go figure?
