Football Fashion II
Last week I bashed Patriots head coach Bill Belichick for showing up to work dressed like he's going for a morning jog. This week I want to give props to San Fransisco 49ers coach Mike Nolan (who happens to be a University of Oregon Alumn) and Jacksonville Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio for wearing suits and ties for this weekends games. It used to be common for coaches to wear suits on the sidelines. Hall of Fame coaches George Halas, Tom Landry and Vince Lombardi always wore suits. In recent years NFL rules did not allow coaches to wear suits due to their apparel contract with Reebok. The NFL has agreed to allow Nolan and Del Rio Reebok issued suits for two games this year and hopefully it's something they approve for the whole season next year.
