Coaches Who Are Always Looking for a Fight

Nobody wants a pushover for a head coach. 

Pushovers just don't work. When the head coach lets the inmates run the prison, you end up with something like the historically-terrible 2012 Boston Red Sox. There is nothing worse than a coach who offers the illusion that he doesn't care, or he's not willing to fight for his players (or against them), or to fight for a championship. 

So even though the guys on this list may get a bad rap for being too confrontational or too rude or too mean, they're actually giving their players and fan bases what they deserve: someone who cares so much about winning that they are willing to make unabashed fools of themselves. 

You know what they say. There's no room for nice guys in coaching.
