Providence head coach Ed Cooley and his Friars pushed Villanova to overtime before eventually losing by ten.  His pants didn’t last as long as his team and he wore a towel around his waist the rest of the way.

Via The Spun:

Providence nearly won another stunner on Saturday night, pushing Villanova to the brink in a tight overtime loss. Tight is also a word that can be used to describe how Friars head coach Ed Cooley must have been feeling in his suit pants early in the contest.

Cooley, at one point during the game, accidentally ripped his pants while sitting down on the bench. As a result, he had to wear towels on his backside to cover up the wardrobe malfunction.

Maybe Cooley will go with a bigger size the next time he has a big game.  It’s tough to be the guy that split his pants.
