There have been many Washington Redskins coaches since the team got its start, but who is truly the best Washington Redskins coach of all time? Help us answer that question by upvoting your personal favorite Washington Redskins coaches, and downvoting any that you believe brought the team down.
 
When you think of Redskins coaches, you think Joe Gibbs. Under his leadership from 1981-1992, the Redskins played in four Super Bowl games, winning 3 of them. This includes their first NFL Championship ever, which was won against the Miami Dolphins, a team that had previously defeated Washington. Outside of Gibbs, there have been no Washington Championships, with the team struggling to make a splash in the NFC.
 
Who is the greatest Washington Redskins coach of all time? Let us know by upvoting for your favorite head coaches below that you believe really made an impact on the franchise.
