The Top 10 Greatest NFL Head Coaches of All Time
On the surface, compiling a list of the 10 all-time greatest NFL head coaches sounds fairly easy to accomplish. There are 22 coaches enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. That group can be reduced to a top 10 list but that option leaves a couple of important names out of consideration.
Judging solely on the basis of regular season or playoff wins short-changes coaches who built their careers in first 40-years of the NFL when 12-game schedules were the norm and the only playoff was the title game between the winners of the Eastern and Western Divisions to.
What earns a coach a place as one of the 10 greatest is on-field success combined with leadership ability, talent for innovation and their continuing impact on the NFL.
