25 Best Playoff Coaches in NFL History

Four NFL teams—and who knows, maybe more—are currently in search of a new head coach. Although each job, owner and team is different and unique, they all want one thing from their new hire: a Super Bowl championship.

Total wins and Super Bowl titles (or NFL championships) are obviously the starting point, but not the be-all, end-all.
