List Rules Only any coach currently coaching an NFL team

The best current NFL coaches are those top football coaches in 2016-2017 who have led their team to greatness in recent years. Between the longest-tenured National Football League coaches to the experienced coaches in new roles, one of these talented coaches will guide their team to a Super Bowl championship come February.

In the love-him-or-hate-him category, Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots is regarded as among the elite current NFL coaches if not one of the best NFL coaches of all time. Coaching the Pats since 2000, Belichick is a three-time NFL Coach of the Year as he helped Tom Brady and company play in five Super Bowls, winning three, in 13 seasons.

But even Belichick can be beaten and the likes of John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens and Ben McAdoo of the New York Giants have done so recently, in the NFL Playoffs, in convincing fashion. The list of the best coaches currently in the NFL doesn't end there though. Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike McCarthy of the Green Bay Packers, Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints, Chip Kelly of the San Francisco 49ers and Gary Kubiak of the Denver Broncos all fit that bill too.

Sadly as great as some of these coaches are, others will inevitably end up quickly replaced with someone else after a poor season and possibly end up among the worst NFL coaches of all time rankings. But as a new season starts, each have a clean slate and opportunity for greatness. Who knows, perhaps some will surprise everyone and quickly rise to become the best current NFL coach one day soon.
