Teams winning Super Bowls with 3 consecutive coaches....

Postby doublej73 » Thu Oct 08, 2009 7:33 pm

Heard something about this on the radio the other day. They were talking about the stability of the Pittsburg Steelers and how they had only had 3 coaches since 1970.

That got me to thinking: Those three coaches each won a Super Bowl.
1) Chuck Noll-4 titles in the 1970's
2) Bill Cowher-one title a few years ago.
3) Mike Tomlin-one title last year.

The only other franchise I could think of to do that was the Dallas Cowboys
1) Tom Landry-2 titles in the 1970's
2) Jimmy Johnson-2 titles in the 1990's
3) Barry Switzer-one title in the 1990's

All with back to back to back head coaches.

Off the top of my head I can't think of any other teams in the Super Bowl era that have done this. Am I missing anyone?
I think the 49ers won all their titles under Walsh and Seiffert. Pretty tough list to be on since you need 3 Super Bowls just to be considered!!

Have I left anyone out?

Well, there are only 8 teams that have won 3+ Super Bowls. 2 are already listed, so, you need to look at the other 6.

Patriots won all with Belichick
49ers won with Walsh, Seifert, then Mariucci could not win one
Redskins won all with Gibbs
Raiders won with Madden, Flores, then Shanahan could not win one
Packers won 2 with Lombardi, then Bengtson broke the streak
Giants won 2 with Parcells, then Handley broke the streak

With that the Cowboys streak was broken at 3 with Gailey. The Steelers could be the only team to make it 4 for 4....but I don't see that happening for quite a while before anyone even gets the chance to be the 4th

Phins would have had 3 in a row with the same coach (Shula) if not for the beat down by the boys in '71 season Super Bowl. Winning it back to back '72-'73 seasons.

Btw I just read info that I never knew about the undefeated season. Did you know with the superbowl win that made it a 17-0 record, if Kicker Garo Yepremian wouldn't have thrown an interception that was returned for a touchdown it would have not only have been the only shutout in SuperBowl history, but it would have had a final score of 17-0 :-D :-D
