Jim Tomsula struts up and down the Redskins practice field, barking orders and instruction. A hands-on coach and considered to be one of the best in his position, the Redskins believe Tomsula can transform their underperforming defensive line.
At home though, it sounds like Tomsula follows orders. At least he did when he shaved his mustache, a look that he had become Internet famous for. Asked why he goes with a clean shave now in Washington after years with the mustache in San Francisco, Tomsula gave quite the answer.
"My wife said, ‘Look man, you look old and scraggly, get that off.’ Her and her daughters," Tomsula explained. "I said ‘Okay, let me shave that off.’"
That was that for the mustache, but Tomsula's wife had more to say.
"She said, ‘and by the way, you’ve been fat for 20 years. Lose some weight.’"
Any good coach knows that life isn't just about talking, it's about listening too. So Tomsula did.
"I got on a diet and I shaved my mustache," he said. "I’m not dyeing my hair though."
Redskins fans, keep an eye on that hair color.
