Default Should head coaches wear suits on the sideline?

I ask this because 49ers head coach mike nolan has been campaigning to wear a suit all season. Currently i believe he can only wear it for 2 games.

Quote:
On Monday, 49ers coach Mike Nolan called Reebok "ignorant" for its stance that he and Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio can wear suits only twice this season. The two coaches were allowed to wear suits twice last year, too.
Quote:
When Mike Nolan took the 49ers' job, he wanted to wear a suit and tie for a couple reasons. 1) He wanted to honor his father; 2) He thinks wearing a suit and tie shows who's in charge and helps foster respect; and 3) He's a bit of a clotheshorse.
http://49ers.pressdemocrat.com/default.asp?item=617142

I dont know if del rio wants to wear the suit for the entire season, but its something the 49ers HC wants to do. So this got me thinking, what are your views on this?



Jack Del Rio



Mike Nolan

I think it would bring a certain level of integrity and class to the league, but with sponsers, the insane heat in some areas of the country, and other impractical circumstances, can understand why certain coaches would not want to wear suits.

I don't think the NFL should limit coaches from wanting to dress in proper attire, but I don't think they should require it either.

I don't know if it matters all that much though...

I don't think they should. I think they should have the option to wear one if they chose to.

I admire what Mike Nolan is doing.

They should where whatever the **** they want to, as long as they are wearing something, I don't care what the coaches where. I don't watch football games to see what Scott Linehan is wearing, I watch it cuz I like to watch football.

I don't think they should be forced to but if they want to I would let them no harm done.

Edit:Now that I went back and saw what other people put my post was all ready up there five times.

i really dont like it. i think either they all need to or they all cant. it throws me off to see a hoodie on one side and a suit on the other. looks weird. i think there should be some form of uniformity to it.

that said, i dont like a suit outside. baseball managers belong in uniform, basketball coaches belong in a suit, and nfl coaches belong in a team polo and kakis or a team jacket.

It really doesn't make since with the excuse the NFL gave Nolan. They said he can't wear it all the time because Reebok license with them. The suits Nolan and Rio wore were made by Reebok so why can't they just wear one if they want to?
