what do coaches w/ all their gear when they switch to a new school?

Someone like Smart has nearly a decades worth of gear from Alabama, Grantham has been at a dozen schools, etc

They can't wear it anymore, not even cutting the grass or anything. Seems wasteful to throw some of it away but I guess it happens

I have always wondered what coaches, and in the NFL the players, do with all that gear when they go to a new team

    I was going to make a joke about Chaney and sailboats but just can't bring myself to it

    I’m assuming it goes to Goodwill before they leave town. If they just throw it away that’s a waste.

    I’ve always wondered this too. I think Mark Richt has a Georgia belt on at his Miami press conference.

    If it were me I’d put it on eBay and donate the money to charity

    My wifes uncle works for Georgia State Patrol and was Richts escort for home games and when Richt got fired he gave all his UGA gear to him. Pretty cool!

    I bet richt puts on UGA duds and shades sits down with a cold one and longs for the old days

    Some donate it to charities some give it away would be my guess

    I know when McElwain left a Florida, a lot of shark-skin g-strings went up on eBay.

    This is my old friend, Dave. He's been with CMR on recruiting trips this fall. Maybe he'll get CMR's green and orange stuff (soon?).

    FWIW: Dave says CMR is genuinely the nicest guy on the planet.

    Like most employers, UGA Athletic Association requires employees return all logowear upon termination. The new coach gets the hand me downs to pass along to his new staff or wear himself....this is actually where the phrase walk a mile in his shoes originated....true story

    CMR may be the nicest guy on the planet, but he’s wearing white pants after Labor Day. He’s lost control of Miami’s fashion scene!

    Mark Richt served this university with dignity while you were baking biscuits and jacking off to nina dobrev scenes in degrassi on nickelodeon, kid.

    Wonder why all the arrest of football players doesn’t exist anymore?

    In fairness, Richt did seem to get rid of violators fairly promptly.

    No put down I’m just wondering why it has stopped.

    Might be, in part, due to recruiting "better" kids...ones less likely to get in trouble...while still recruiting good athletes. More emphasis on good grades/test scores than previously? At least that's some of what I've been reading.
