The best Halloween costumes of 2014: Coaches edition


Last year we put together an article tracking all of the best coaching costumes that were donned on Halloween, and it was so popular and entertaining that I decided to do the same this year.

Take a look at the best ones from last year, including baby Andy Reid, toddler Holgo, and baby Mike Ditka.

Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Many coaching costumes will hit the streets and various festivities over the weekend, so think of this as the one place you can go to see all of the best ones. Noteworthy costumes donned by head coaches and coordinators may also make the cut, just as they did last year.

I encourage you to tweet us (@FootballScoop) with any coaching costume that you come across over the next night or two, and check back in as this article will continue to update throughout the weekend.

But before we get into this year's costumes, enjoy this clip that ESPNU put together of toddlers dressed up and reenacting the greatest college football coaching rants of all time, including Mike Gundy's "I'm a man! I'm 40" bit. Of course Les Miles and John L. Smith are included as well.

This one of @FauxPelini is my favorite one yet...


Can any college football coaches out there top Tennessee baseball coach Dave Serrano? His costume game is pretty strong.

Nice work by the Franklin family here.

The staff at Kansas Wesleyan dressed as Hulk, Tony Stark, Heisenberg, Jesse Pinkman, one of their captains in uniform, and then (of course) Ditka. We received this picture via text with the caption: "My mother in law as Gundy"


FAU had Ron Burgundy (assistant director of academic advising) as a special guest on their road trip today.

Not necessarily coaching related, but this one is pretty awesome

Arkansas State head coach Blake Anderson had a spot on costume of assistant Trooper Taylor. Love this one We have a Little Jim Harbaugh on the scene, dad pants and all.

Chip Kelly is going to award candy at a pace beyond human comprehension.
