NFL Fines Pete Carroll, Kyle Shanahan & Vic Fangio $100K Each For Not Wearing Masks


Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the NFL fined three head coaches — Denver’s Vic Fangio, Seattle’s Pete Carroll and San Francisco’s Kyle Shanahan — $100,000 each for not wearing masks on Sunday.

Beyond that, each of their respective teams have been fined another $250,000 for a total of $1.05 million in fines for not wearing masks.

Reports have said that the NFL was planning to issue serious discipline for coaches who choose not to wear masks in Week 2 after a number of coaches were seen on the sideline not adhering to the agreed-upon protocols for NFL games this year. 

Schefter says it’s possible that more fines could be coming based on video from Monday night’s game between the Raiders and Saints.

At least use a picture of Pete from this year. Poor reporting. He had a gaiter around his neck, but rarely wore it, he wasn’t or there without a mask.
