Photo: Kyle Whittingham Throws Up Utah "U" Hand Sign With KISS After Salt Lake City Concert

If you asked us to pair a college football program with a famous band from the 1970s and 80s, Utah and KISS would not be the first combination to come to mind, but Utah Director of Player Personnel Fred Whittingham certainly seems to think Gene Simmons and company are big Utes fans. The Whittingham family, including head coach Kyle, met up with the band after a Salt Lake City concert on Monday, and even got the band to throw up the Utah 'U' hand signal with them.

If Utah really wanted to build on this KISS affiliation, it'd let the band design Utes jerseys. Utah-Oregon games would look absolutely insane.
