Clearly, you can see the game has changed a good bit. There have only been 18 ties since the 1974 season in the entire NFL. At the bottom you can see the averages of the 22 coaches.Make note that there are just over 150 regular-season wins, an 0.618 winning percentage, 8-6 playoff record and 2.5 championships. Only Madden and Sid Gillman claimed one, and Madden’s wait for induction was very long despite his overall contributions to the game and his high winning percentage. The only three coaches to make it without a ring: George Allen, Marv Levy and Bud Grant.However, these things take time, and successful coaches like Mike Shanahan (Denver), Bill Cowher (Pittsburgh), Tony Dungy (Tampa Bay) and Tom Coughlin (Jacksonville) were all active.Bill Belichick had just taken the job in New England, which would lead to one of the greatest runs of success in NFL history.Originally there was no grace period for a coach to become eligible, but by the time Parcells finally called it a career with Dallas following 2006, there was a five-year wait (just like for players) put in place for coaches in 2008.That is why Parcells technically had two years of eligibility and was a finalist four times.This chart tracks how many Hall of Fame coaches were active during each NFL season since 1920: On average, the league had 4.4 Hall of Fame coaches active per season. There have not been more than five active Hall of Fame coaches since the 1989 season.The golden age of coaching, as measured by Hall of Fame coaches, actually starts with the beginning of the Super Bowl era.
At least that was true until the 2000 season, which is the first time there was no active head coach who became a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
That’s one fewer than the four coaches inducted as a Senior Candidate.
Before Parcells, George Allen, Hank Stram and John Madden all had more than 20 years of eligibility before finally making it.
Paul Brown, Vince Lombardi and Bill Walsh, three of the game’s greatest innovators and winners of multiple championships, all had to wait three-to-five years for induction. There does appear to be a voting prejudice against non-players, which only seems to be getting worse.
Today’s voters may not have been so kind to coach-players like Guy Chamberlin and Jimmy Conzelman or short-lived successes like Ray Flaherty and Greasy Neale.
