The Best Las Vegas Raiders Coaches of All Time

Who is the best Las Vegas Raiders coach of all time? Throughout their time as a football franchise, the Las Vegas Raiders have had a variety of coaches, any of whom could be considered among the greatest NFL coaches of all time.  Keeping stats like Super Bowl wins and playoff runs in mind, which Raiders coach is the best? What Las Vegas Raiders head coaches do you love?

There's really no question that John Madden is considered one of the greatest Las Vegas Raiders Coach of all time. The team dominated the AFC West during his time as coach, and Madden gave Oakland their first Super Bowl Championship in 1976.

Despite Madden's success, however, there is one other coach who has more Super Bowl Championships with Oakland/Las Vegas. Coach Tom Flores helped the Raiders win an NFL Championship in 1980 and 1983, and the team has never won the big game since.
