It’s all for charity and raises a lot of needed funds. It’s all in good fun, and thousands of spectators yearly visit the Alabama Gulf Coast.

While dead mullets were flying from Florida into Alabama, celebrity contestants at the annual Interstate Mullet Toss Saturday were two head coaches from the University of Alabama.

Alabama football head coach Kalen DeBoer and UA basketball head coach Nate Oats faced off at the Flora-Bama to toss mullets into the next state. The Alabama-Florida line runs through the Flora-Bama property, so it is in both states.

DeBoer is still an object of curiosity as the brand-new coach following Nick Saban.

Oats is on a popularity high, as he took the Tide basketball team to its first Final Four.

The hugely attended annual event features contestants who throw a dead mullet over the state line separating Florida and Alabama to see whose mullet gets the farthest.

The Mullet Toss consists of individuals on the beach throwing a mullet from a 10-foot circle in Florida across the state line into Alabama.

The ‘athletic competition” is accompanied by a weekend-long party and music, all while helping raise money for the local community.
