From the SF Chronicle’s Kevin Lynch.
Coach Mike Nolan recently petitioned the NFL to allow him to wear a suit on the sidelines during game days.
“To me, it’s professional. I think it’s respectful,” Nolan (above) said. “There was certainly no deal, no one came to me, there was nothing to gain. I wasn’t trying to put the spotlight on me. But what I was trying to say, there’s somebody in charge and this is what they look like.”
The league turned Nolan down. Head coaches must wear the NFL-sanctioned team garb.
“There were marketing issues and sales issues, all that stuff,” Nolan lamented.
