In all the years they've been competing in the NHL, the Calgary Flames have certainly gone through some great (and not so great) coaches. That being said, who is the best Calgary Flames head coach of all time? This list ranks every Calgary Flames coach from best to worst with the help of our users. Hockey fans like you have already voted on this list, but we want you to contribute as well. Upvote your top Calgary Flames coaches, keeping stats like regular season record and playoff appearances in mind.

Terry Crisp was the first coach in Flames' history to win a Stanley Cup, which he did in 1989. Crisp however was fired two years later after his personality clashed with players on multiple occasions. Another great Flames head coach was Bob Johnson. Johnson is the only Flames head coach currently in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
