Michelle Obama may be one of the most recognizable figures in the world but that didn’t stop ESPN analyst and former NFL coach, Jon Gruden from confusing her with an ESPN sideline reporter Wednesday.

Gruden was in the middle of explaining Clemson’s elaborate play-calling system when he made the gaffe.

“There’s Lisa Salters,” Gruden began saying until being corrected by his co-announcers.
