P.J. Fleck makes debut in 'elite' pizza commercial
There may not be a more elite food on the planet than pizza. So it’s kind of appropriate that Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck was asked to take part in a pizza commercial in Minnesota.
Red’s Savoy Pizza dropped its latest commercial promoting its products, and Fleck was the star of the advertisement. With a little extra time on his hands due to the B1G canceling the fall football season, the Gophers head coach had some time to perfect his acting skills.
Below is the advertisement that Red’s Savoy Pizza shared on Twitter on Tuesday morning:

You don’t really need a head football coach to help sell pizza, but Fleck’s enthusiasm certainly doesn’t hurt in this case.
Fleck has gained popularity in Minnesota and across the B1G over the last year. In 2019, the Golden Gophers finished the season with an 11-2 record, which included a victory over Penn State and an Outback Bowl win over Auburn.
The Gophers were expected to be in contention for a B1G West title in 2020. We’ll have to wait just a little longer to see Minnesota back in action on the field.
