Watch: American University basketball coach gets engaged at halftime

We've noticed quite a few football players feel the love and propose on field, and we've been expecting some basketball players to follow suit as the season goes forward.

But, coaches?

Yup, American University assistant women's basketball coach Tiffany Coll got the spotlight proposal treatment at halftime during the Eagles game against Colgate on Jan. 30.

Dan McKenna, Coll's now-fiance, had been planning a way to work sports into his proposal; McKenna being a former pitcher for Rutgers and Coll being a former basketball player at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, it only made sense.

According to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, McKenna's original plan involved dressing up as American mascot "Clawed Z. Eagle," but the administration nixed that idea and helped him come up with the classic suit-and-banner-at-halftime plan.

And, while less creative, it got results. Coaches love results.
