On the first Sunday of the NFL season, several coaches were seen either not wearing masks, or not wearing them properly. And the league is NOT going to stand for that.

Vice president of football operations Troy Vincent issued a memo yesterday saying, quote, "The NFL-NFLPA gameday protocol, which reflects the advice of infectious disease experts, club medical staffs and local and state governmental regulations requires all individuals with bench area access (including coaches and members of the club medical staff) to wear face coverings at all times," read the letter cited by ESPN. "Failure to adhere to this requirement will result in accountability measures being imposed against offending individuals and/or clubs."
There's no word what those "accountability measures" will be.
