2016 NFL Head Coach Power Rankings

Publish Date: 06/08/2016
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis
2016 NFL Head Coach Power Rankings!

32). Mike Mularkey, Titans

Career 18-39 record doesn’t bode well for Mularkey, getting Mariota back will help, but the Titans have a lot of holes.

31). Doug Pederson, Eagles

I really don’t think this was a good hire by the Eagles front office. I thought they would go for a more Andy Reid style coach and instead they got a Chip Kelly knock off.

30). Ben McAdoo, Giants

Solid offensive coach, but the defense is the problem. Hopefully he figures out how to fix it quick or it will be a short reign in New York for McAdoo.

29). Dirk Koetter, Buccaneers

Koetter did a good job with the offense last year, as a first year head coach the jury is still out. I still think Koetter will do a very good job in Tampa.

28). Adam Gase, Dolphins

The question with Gase is can he get Tannehill straightened out?

27). Chip Kelly, 49ers

Not a good hire, but it’s the 49ers what do you expect? As a coach he seems to be the kind of guy that is trying to reinvent the wheel.

26). Hue Jackson, Browns

Was successful in Oakland going 8-8 no Raiders coach had done that in awhile. Andy Dalton had his best season with Hue Jackson as the coordinator.

25). Jason Garrett, Cowboys

Not Garrett’s fault completely with Romo and Bryant injuries, but one playoff win since 2010 is.

24). Jim Caldwell, Lions

I really don’t think Caldwell makes it through this season, maybe the Lions are just cursed? More probable that they are just poorly run, neither bodes well for Caldwell.

23). Rex Ryan, Bills

Rex is supposed to be a great defensive coach and the Bills defense was worse under him. If the Bills miss the playoffs this year Rex will never be a head coach in the NFL again.

22). Jeff Fisher, Rams

Most overrated coach in the NFL? No playoffs in six years and he still has a job, who else gets that much rope?

21). John Fox, Bears

Solid coach who has been successful more often than not. His players always play hard for him. Can he turn around the Bears?

20). Gus Bradley, Jaguars

Bradley took over a dumpster fire and looks close to turning the Jags around.

19). Mike McCoy, Chargers

Last year was a disaster for the Chargers after back to back winning seasons. McCoy’s job is probably on the line this year.

18). Jack Del Rio, Raiders

The Raiders look real close to righting a ship that has been in trouble for over a decade.

17). Dan Quinn, Falcons

Got off to a great start last year only to flame out at the end. The Falcons seemed to be a much tougher team mentally under Quinn.

16). Sean Payton, Saints

A few years ago would have ranked in the top 5, now not so much. Big question in New Orleans is has he overstayed his welcome?

15). Bill O’Brien, Texans

Sure the division was terrible last year, but they did make the playoffs with no starting QB. This year will be the year to judge how good of a coach O’Brien is?

14). Chuck Pagano, Colts

Sometimes brilliant, sometimes clueless he is not helped by an inept ownership.

13). Jay Gruden, Redskins

Personally not a big Gruden fan, but like O’Brien he did make the playoffs last year.

12). Todd Bowles, Jets

Did one of the best coaching jobs in the NFL last year keeping the Jets in playoff contention all year.

11). Marvin Lewis, Bengals

Has won zero playoff games since 2003 and still has his job, very good coach until it comes playoff time.

10). Mike McCarthy, Packers

Has one a Super Bowl, but the argument can be made that with Aaron Rodgers he should have more.

9). Andy Reid, Chiefs

If you want to make the playoffs every year and not win the Super Bowl Reid is your guy! Great job after a 1-5 start in Kansas City to rebound and make the playoffs.

8). Mike Zimmer, Vikings

Has turned the Vikings into division champs in two short years. Can he take Teddy Bridgewater and win it all?

7). Bruce Arians, Cardinals

Great regular season coach, but the playoff failures against the Panthers drop him down to here.

6). Mike Tomlin, Steelers

Overcame big time injuries last year to get the Steelers into the playoffs. Very good coach who has won a super bowl, a lot of questions about the Steelers DB’s coming into this season, but you can bet that Tomlin will have the Steelers in contention.

5). Ron Rivera, Panthers

One of the best defensive minds in the NFL and took the Panthers to the Super Bowl without a legitimate threat at wide receiver.

4). Gary Kubiak, Broncos

Winning the Super Bowl means you have to be high on this list. Questions still surround Kubiak though, a lot of people credit Wade Phillips and the Broncos defense more than they credit Kubiak.

3). John Harbaugh, Ravens

I know the Ravens had a rough season last year, but it was Harbaugh’s first losing season. He will have the Ravens back in contention soon.

2). Pete Carroll, Seahawks 

The Seahawks took a step back last year, but were still a play or two from mounting one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history in a playoff loss to the Panthers.

1). Bill Belichick, Patriots

No doubt about this number one, unless you are one of those mindless people that want to go off on a he cheated rant.
