Dan Campbell continues to amuse everyone by wearing IndyCar helmet to press conference


It is never a dull moment with Dan Campbell around.

The Detroit Lions head coach has certainly been an amusing personality since he was hired earlier this year, and he continued his entertainment when he conducted his press conference on Thursday while wearing a racing helmet.

Campbell donned the helmet because he will serve as Grand Marshal at the Detroit Grand Prix on Saturday, June 12.

“As you can see, I’m pretty excited about that,” Campbell said at the podium, which was conducted over Zoom. “It gives me a chance to see our fans, who I know will be out there. But then, just watch a good race out there.”

Naturally, football fans of all kinds on social media loved it.

Campbell has already had his fair share of quote, or in this case, meme-worthy moments with the media.

At his opening press conference in January, Campbell said “we’re going to bite a kneecap off” when discussing the toughness he hopes to instill in the team.

The plaque outside his office reads “Head Coach/The Dude” and he referred to himself as a “true alpha.”

Recently, he even suggested getting a real-life pet lion to bring to practice.

Whether or not Campbell brings results to Detroit remains to be seen, but one thing for sure is he knows how to make things interesting.
