There are quite a few Head Coaches that work out. Tony Dungy hits the gym every morning before his players come... yeah he's not overweight... and yeah, I think his team listens to him.

I agree with the orginal poster, there's no excuse for it.

Dick Vermeil, Herm Edwards, Joe Gibbs, Nick Saban, Mike Nolan, etc. All skinny coaches (or former coaches) who are well respected in the NFL.

A skinny coach is one step on the totem pole above a male WNBA coach.


John Guden has no problem getting the attention/respect/whatever from his players. Tony Dungy, Tom Landry, etc, either.

I think it comes down to your approach also (see Dungy). But there are also exceptions such as Gruden (aka Chucky).

Yeah, the most intimidating players in the NFL aren't necessarily the fattest... :-?

How can you say that? Look how intimidating this guy is . . .

I know I'm scared. Not sure if I'm scared of being eaten or getting sat on, but I'm scared.

Notice how the skinny coaches seem to be the younger ones. Not sure how old Dungy is, but Gruden, and Saban for example. Staying fit gets naturally harder with age, so it doesnt surprise me with coaches being a significantly older group of individuals that most of them are out of shape.

There is Mike Tice, whos quite a hefty youngin(for coaches at least).

On the other side of the spectrum, jack del rio looks like he could still strap on the shoulder pads and lay the wood.

I have Vermeil as an example and Gibbs. They're not exactly fresh out of junior high and they're definitely not overweight. Of course, with age it becomes more difficult to stay fit though.
