There haven't been many Dallas Cowboys coaches since the team got its start, but we want you to vote for the best Dallas Cowboys coach of all time anyways. Let your opinion be known by upvoting your personal favorite Dallas Cowboys coaches, and downvoting any that you believe brought the team down.

It's really hard to argue that Tom Landry isn't the greatest Dallas Cowboys coach of all time. With 2 Super Bowl wins and 5 NFC Championships, he coached the Cowboys for almost 30 years and left an amazing legacy behind when he died in 2000.

Jimmy Johnson was another incredible coach for the Cowboys, leading the franchise to back-to-back Super Bowl Championships in 1992 and 1993. Just two years later coach Barry Switzer won a Super Bowl with the Cowboys as well, making him one of only three coaches to win both a college national and NFL Championship.

Who is the greatest Dallas Cowboys coach of all time? Let us know by upvoting for your favorite head coaches below that you believe really made an impact on the franchise.
