There are plenty of reasons to wish you had played for a certain coach. I'm actually quite happy with the fact that I was able to play for former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Tony Dungy for six out of my seven years in the NFL because he taught me so much about the game. But there are eight other coaches throughout the history of the NFL that I also wish I had played for.
The common thread with these coaches is that I believe I could have learned a lot from all of them as well.
For a good part of my life I thought I would end up coaching after football, and firsthand experience with these coaches would have been invaluable. Even though I haven't followed through on those plans, I still appreciate all that I did learn from my time in the league and I always want to acquire more knowledge.
So here, in no particular order, are the eight other head coaches I wish I had played for and what I thought I could have learned from them.
