Ranking the NFL's Worst Head Coaches Since 1990


Starting with the 1990 NFL season, there have been about 150 head coaches to roam the sideline. While this span has included the tenure of current Hall of Famers like Don Shula, Joe Gibbs and Bill Parcells as well as likely future ones such as Bill Belichick, there have been many who didn’t or haven’t fared near as well.

To that point, six head coaches were given the pink slip after the 2013 season. Fortunately for this group, only one’s lack of success made enough of an impression, albeit a bad one, to make Athlon Sports’ list of the worst NFL head coaching tenures since 1990. Sorry Greg Schiano, but as you found out for yourself, the Big East and the NFL are two entirely different animals.
