1. Vince Lombardi (Packers/Redskins)
There is no argument here, and this is the obvious choice for the greatest coach to ever stand on the sidelines. I mean, the Super Bowl Trophy is named after him, and for good reason too. His Packers won the first Super Bowls and four NFL Championships before that. He was named Coach of the Year as a ROOKIE. He had a 9-1 record in the playoffs and staggering overall record of 105-35-6. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971.
