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

Two coaches led the Houston Oilers to AFC Championships in the 60s. Lou Rymkus did it in 1960, and the very next next year Wally Lemm did it again during his only season as an Oilers head coach.

The only coach to be apart of the team when they were the Houston Oilers, Tennessee Oilers and Tennessee Titans is coach Jeff Fisher, who also brought the team to the most playoff appearances. Since his departure the Titans have not made the playoffs, but coach Ken Whisenhunt will try to change that.

If the Titans 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 Tennesse Titans or Houston Oilers.
