There have been many Kansas City Chiefs coaches since the team got its start, but who is truly the best Kansas City Chiefs coach of all time? Help us answer that question by upvoting your personal favorite Kansas City Chiefs coaches, and downvoting any that you believe brought the team down.

Marty Schottenheimer is the winningest coach in Chiefs franchise history, with a 101-58 regular season record. Despite their dominance in the early 90's, the team unfortunately won a championship under coach Marty.

One man who did however win a Super Bowl with the Chiefs is the legendary Hank Stram, the very first coach of the Chiefs. During his time with Kansas City, Stram captured 2 AFL Championships pre-merger, and eventually a Super Bowl Championship at Super Bowl IV.
