Best-dressed coach (2000)

Mike Shanahan

This is partly a process of elimination. Buddy Bell wears, well, a baseball uniform, and really, how fashionable is that? While Bob Hartley, coach of the Colorado Avalanche, cuts a manly figure, his clothes are "eh," and there's a reason they call Dan Issel "the Horse." So the honor goes to Mike Shanahan, who, while generally swaddled in Bronco-wear during games, cuts an extremely dashing figure off the field. "Some men are born to wear a $2,000 suit," says one bartender where the Broncos coach is a regular. "His players all dress as if they're trying to look like him, but he puts them to shame."
