Northern Illinois football coach Dave Doeren jumped out of a perfectly good airplane at 14,000 feet to sell a few tickets.

The first-year Huskies coach has been going on interesting adventures this summer, all in the name of advancing his program. He's documented them on the schools website in the "Doeren Discovers" web series.

The Chicago Tribune reports Doeren, the former Wisconsin defensive coordinator, spent time with cows at a 6,300-acre farm, took batting practice with a minor league baseball team, drove over 125 MPH at Chicagoland Speedway and even sang the Cubs 7th-inning stretch at Wrigley Field.

He ended the latest video saying he was jumping from a plane for NIU football, but all the fans have to do is show up to six home games.

The Huskies play Army, Cal Poly, Kent State, Western Michigan, Ball State and Eastern Illinois in DeKalb.

Northern Illinois, 11-3 and 8-0 in the MAC last season, also has a showcase game against Wisconsin at Soldier Field.
