They are leaders, coaches, motivators, influences and teachers. And for the small few who have known them on the sideline or on the hardwood or in the arena, athletes have gained from their knowledge and inspiration.
As coaches, they are legends.
This list of the greatest coaches of all time comes with many interpretations and many questions about who was added and who was left off. They span many sports and different eras. But all of them have proven to be winners at what they do.
While they are in a numeric order, there is no real way to tell which coach is the best of all time, however there are enough greats to read about that you can formulate your own ideas.
So in the festive spirit of the holidays. enjoy.
