Since they've been playing in the NHL, the Philadelphia Flyers have seen some great (and not so great) coaches come and go. But who is the best Philadelphia Flyers head coach of all time? This list ranks every Philadelphia Flyers coach from best to worst based on votes from hockey fans like you. Upvote your top Philadelphia Flyers coaches, keeping stats like regular season record and playoff appearances in mind.

Fred Shero is the only head coach of the Flyers to win a Stanley Cup championship, which he did in back-to-back seasons in 1974 and 1975. Roger Neilson, who coached the Flyers from 1998-2000, is the only other Philly Flyers coach to be elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Neilson, who was diagnosed with cancer during the 2000 season, was let go for medical reasons - a move widely criticized by fans.
