Jeff Fisher Redux: The 26 Most Overrated Coaches in NFL History

After 16 years (and part of a 17th), Jeff Fisher is out as head coach of the Tennessee Titans. He was the longest-tenured coach in the NFL, and the franchise's one holdover (apart from owner Bud Adams) from its days as the Houston Oilers.

But what, exactly, did Fisher do to deserve to be in charge for so long? He never won a Super Bowl, and only even made it to one. He had a whopping six winning seasons in his sixteen years. (According to, he was known locally as "Coacho Ocho" and "Coach 0.500" in honor of these "accomplishments".) This past year, the Titans were off to a 5-2 start before a ongoing dispute between Fisher and quarterback Vince Young finally blew up, leading to a 6-10 finish.

It's pretty clear that Bud Adams and many others overrated Jeff Fisher's talent as a head coach. But he's not the only coach to keep getting work when he clearly doesn't deserve it. Here are Fisher and 25 more of the most overrated coaches in the history of the NFL, ranked in reverse order of career wins.
