Morehead State Women’s Coach Showcases ‘style’ On Sideline (Photo)

Tom Hodges is the new head women’s basketball coach at Morehead State. Hodges is extremely young (just 28), so one might suspect he’d operate a bit differently than the archetypal coach. And one glance at Hodges’ sideline attire for his team’s opener today against Kentucky shows that would be a wise suspicion indeed.

Kentucky’s a fine team (No. 9 nationally), so it was going to take a lot for Morehead State to upstage them (even though they posted 22 wins last year themselves). Here, however, is what Hodges wore for the game:

Kentucky won the game 82-48. Is that the main discussion point people are taking away from this game? Take a wild guess. Oh, and if you’re thinking, “Man, that suit looks like something John Daly would wear!”…well:

On a whim, Hodges sent an e-mail to Daly’s PGA Tour clothing sponsor, LoudMouth Golf, and told the company their idea.

“I was never expecting to get anything back, said Hodges, 28. Within two minutes, President Larry Jackson called me.”

Hodges says it actually makes him uncomfortable to wear crazy things like this. We, however, are downright thrilled to see him doing it, and even more so that more outfits like it are apparently on the way. Check out what he’s wearing in his official bio photo, for instance. And this teaser:

Not only does Hodges’ new wardrobe have multi-colored sport coats, but also at least 15 pairs of pants that he calls the “wildest, craziest things you ever have seen.”

As if you had any doubts, Tom Hodges is now one of our favorite basketball coaches.
