The best Halloween costumes of 2013: Coaches edition (Updated)


Halloween is the time of year for crafty costume ideas and none are more entertaining than when a costume imitates a coach.

With many Halloween celebrations taking place this week, we thought it would be a good idea to recap some of the more entertaining coaching costumes here in this article. This article will be updated throughout the week, so be sure to check in for all the latest costume ideas.

Think of this as the "Best costumes of the year: Coaches edition". I've also decided to include noteworthy costumes from big time head coaches as well.

We encourage you to tweet us (@FootballScoop) your coach themed costumes, and any other interesting coaching get-ups that you see during your Halloween festivities this week. This one of Kevin Sumlin and Kliff Kingsbury was one of the best ones I saw last year.

I'll start things off with Kliff Kingsbury (who I predict will own the 2013 title for the most duplicated coaching costume of the year), and a baby Andy Reid costume that almost broke Twitter last night. 

There's also this baby coach Holgorsen from last year worth pointing out (Red Bull not pictured).

 It's also a great occasion to give the equipment guys some extra love, as Tye Welton (the son of player personnel director Bob Welton) points out here, dressing as Allen "Hawk" Sitzler.

Then there is the real Bill Belichick having some fun as a pirate.

This one doesn't have anything to do with a coach dressing up, but we felt that Robert Gillespie (running backs coach at Tennessee) enjoying his first VOLoween with his family was worthy of mention.


Coaching legends are also fair game.


 This kid does a pretty good Jim Harbaugh.
