A Big 12 football coach is going to be a contestant on this upcoming season of The Bachelorette.

Texas Tech senior offensive analyst Kirk Bryant was rumored to be on the show last month before it got confirmed by head coach Joey McGuire. McGuire actually expects Bryant to win the whole thing and get engaged at the end.

"We are going to get shirts, we're going to have an office watch party, we might have an office bracket," McGuire said via FootballScoop. "Kirk is the brand. I told him if he doesn't get a rose, that he might not need to come back to West Texas."

The Bachelorette first aired in 2003, a year after The Bachelor debuted on television. This coming season will be the 19th, and it'll be the first one with two bachelorettes.

Usually, the show only has one lead who's looking for love, but a change was made for this year's season.

Both Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia from Clayton's season of The Bachelor will be running the show.

This also isn't the first time someone in football has gone on the show. Jordan Rodgers went on JoJo Fletcher's season back in 2016 and actually won the whole thing.

He's set to get married to Fletcher later this year.
