It should come as some relief to his daughter’s prom date that Gene Chizik (shown in 2012) does this often. (Dave Martin / AP)

It’s not easy for a dad to see his daughter head off to the prom and Gene Chizik, the former football coach at Auburn, is no exception.

In one of the greatest photos of all time (or at least in the history of the weekend’s prom photos), Chizik’s lil girl headed to the dance with her date, whose mother snapped a pic that has gone viral because of how Chizik’s snarl captures perfectly how every father has ever felt about his daughter’s date. (Note subtle message sent to her date by his biceps.)

Evidently, it all went okay.

And Jeri Dickey, the mom who took the photo, is dealing life post-prom-pic life.
