Sean McVay believed he's likely responsible for the memo sent Monday by the NFL to reinforce that coaches must wear face coverings at all times on the sidelines during games and threatening discipline for those who don't comply.
"I figured that memo was directed at me," McVay said.
During Sunday night's game between the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys, McVay roamed the sideline with his mask mostly worn under his chin, a clear violation of the league's coronavirus safety protocol.
"I've been getting blasted all day about it, so I just love it," McVay said, a bit tongue-in-cheek, before continuing in a more serious tone. "I will do better."
