Sports Hair of the Week - Gene Keady

Former Purdue Men's Basketball Coach Gene Keady is this week's winner of the Sports Hair of the Week award. Keady was the basketball coach at Purdue University from 1980-2005 before taking a position with the Toronto Raptors as an Assistant Coach. Keady only lasted one year in Toronto and now serves as a college basketball analyst for the Big Ten Network, where he was recently honored as having the best hair on the network. Nicknamed "The Keady Combover," Gene is notorious for having his hair plastered on a weekly basis. Rather than using gel or mousse, Keady feels that shoe polish provides a much stronger hold and can remain in tact through winds of up to 40 mph.
