From May 30 and every day until September 5the start of the 2013 NFL seasonSports Stats 'on Tapp' will publish "99 Stats Until Kick-Off" a daily dose of NFL stats that will get you ready for the 2013 NFL season.

When the New York Giants defeated the New Orleans Saints, 52-27, on December 9, 2012, it was the 150th career win for Giants coach Tom Coughlin. But it also was monumental in that the victory put Coughlin on top of the list for most wins by an NFL coach with the last name starting with the letter C.

Coughlin now sits atop the list of most wins by a “C” coach with 151, surpassing former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, who had 149 career wins.

The only active coach on the list below is St. Louis Rams head man Jeff Fisher; he has 149 career wins, the most by any coach whose last name starts with an F. Former San Diego head coach Norv Turner leads coaches with the last name starting with T, but Turner may not be adding to those totals any time soon since he was fired as Chargers coach after the 2012 season.
