I'm 99 percent sure that Pelphrey is connected.  His look just says "Goomba".

Mobsters (bosses) are fairly (or very) wealthy, much like these coaches.  They need to portray a strong, unflappable, and professional image.  This means bespoke suits, expensive haircuts, and very few smiles.  There are numerous shared features between the two identities of a coach and il padrino.

You gotta look hard if your a ball coach. Anything other being slicked back or bald than you're weak and a target.

Huggins has already had one heart attack.  He might want to lay off the pasta for a year or two.

Imagine Petrino in a suit coaching basketball.  He would fit right in with the rest of those guys looking the mob part.  Same with Saban and many other football coaches.  Orgeron would be perfect as the "muscle guy".

Immediately after reading this thread I began thinking of coaches that didn't look like mobsters. Then you come up with the preacher bit and now I can't think of any.

Keady was a great coach and perhaps the best assistant basketball coaches ever at Arkansas. When he had that "scowl" look on his face I actually felt sorry for the players.

Nolan had lots of nicknames for opposing coaches, and not all of them were complimentary.  Remember "Slick Rick"?

I believe he called him Sweet Tom...hard to believe as much bad blood as there was between us and Texas that we would open up Barnhill years later and allow Tom to live there in its bowels, complete with his own tanning bed.

If you mean McCurtain County Oklahoma, I used to live and work there in Idabel a long time ago. One of the worst towns or places I ever worked at. One could literally get away with murder and the victims body would never be found if they were friends with the right folks there. When I lived there is when I decided to get a carry pistol. No lie.

Too much truth in this, but at the same time the rest of the county isn't so bad.
