Doug Marrone would not wear a ‘Canadian tuxedo’

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

There’s always a couple of off-the-wall questions at a press conference and it was no different for Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone on Thursday. While being asked about the new Jaguars uniform and helmet, the final question to Marrone was about tuxedo’s.

The Canadian kinds.

“You guys are killing me. No, but I do own a tux,” Marrone said when asked if he’d ever wear a Canadian tuxedo. “We have to go to the College Football Awards Ceremony at the Waldorf [Astoria]. That’s every year. It’s black tie. I used to have to go to black-tie events when my wife was an attorney for her thing. Then I think I had one other black-tie event. I thought to rent a tuxedo is going to cost me $120, maybe I should buy one. In the long run, if I’m not a fat then I will be able to use this tuxedo for a while. I went out and then I went to the tuxedo place and that’s the only place I could ever shop. I said I wanted the most conservative tuxedo that I can use for weddings, receptions, parties and all that stuff. I have the same one.”

For those who are unfamiliar with the term, a Canadian tuxedo is in essence full on denim. Head to toe. Denim pants, denim shirt, denim jacket.

Could you imagine Marrone in one of those on the sideline?
