The Best Pittsburgh Steelers Coaches of All Time

Throughout their time as a football franchise, the Pittsburgh Steelers have had a variety of coaches, but who is the best Pittsburgh Steelers head coach of all time? We want you to help us answer that question by voting for your favorite Pittsburgh Steelers coaches, keeping stats like Super Bowl wins and playoff runs in mind.

You'd be hard pressed to find a Steelers fan who doesn't think that Chuck Noll is the greatest Steelers head coach of all time. He coached the Steelers from 1969-1991, one of only four men to coach a team for 23 years or more. Noll won four Super Bowl Championships with the Steelers, tied with Bill Belichick for most Super Bowl wins. Two other coaches have given Pittsburgh a championship; Bill Cowher and current head coach Mike Tomlin.

If the Pittsburgh Steelers had a best of all time team, who would coach it? Vote for your favorites below, even if the coach never won a championship with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
