Villanova coach Jay Wright chooses polo over suit

Posted on

NEW ORLEANS — Jay Wright won’t have his customary GQ look at the Final Four.

College basketball coaches have gone casual these last two seasons. That has meant a different wardrobe for the Villanova basketball coach and former UNLV assistant.

The Wildcats play Kansas in one national semifinal Saturday at the Caesars Superdome.

Wright, long known for his tailored three-piece suits and being the best-dressed of college coaches, has followed the lead of peers and opted for the standard polo shirt.

He didn’t even bring a suit on the trip.

“Now, it’s easy packing,” Wright said. ““No one cares what I wear. But if I don’t match my (assistants) — because we have so much stuff — it looks like I screwed up. So I’m more nervous now than I ever was about what suit to wear.”
