LOOK: Mike Smith, Mike McCarthy, Marvin Lewis sport mustaches

Mustaches have become the latest recycled rage. Well, they are where I live in Austin where you can see everything from the John Holmes look to the Rollie Fingers look to everything in between (except, curiously, for the John Waters look) at the local coffee shops and watering holes.

But for nearly 1/10 of the league, mustaches also were popular for NFL head coaches when they were lowly assistant coaches or college players.

We saw that last week on the season premiere of Hard Knocks when we got to view video footage of this incredible facial caterpillar on Mike Smith, via Bleacher Report.

But then, I ran across this tweet, and it was hard to contain my delight. For it's Packers coach Mike McCarthy doing his best Ryan Klesko impression.

And THEN, I found this (via cincyjungle.com) of Marvin Lewis as a linebacker at Idaho State.

But here's a special treat, via Deadspin. It's a SNL outtake from 1993 with the ornery mustache master himself, Mike Ditka. Enjoy the man and his mustache.
