List RulesVote up the best coaches mentored by Bill Parcells.

Bill Parcells is a Hall of Fame coach and two-time Super Bowl champion, and the Bill Parcells coaching tree reflects that success with a total of nine Super Bowl victories represented. Parcells' former assistants have won numerous Coach of the Year awards and their record as a whole is evidence of a legacy of mentorship and talent.

Of course, Bill Belichick is the most prominent name on the coaching tree of Bill Parcells. As the head coach of the Patriots, Belichick is one of the winningest coaches in NFL history and has helped guide the franchise to six Super Bowl rings. Ironically, Belichick would have more championships if not for another coach on this list: Tom Coughlin, who beat Belichick in the Super Bowl twice with the New York Giants. Saints head coach Sean Payton has also reached the top of the sport with his own Super Bowl victory.

NFL coaching trees are a major part of assessing any football coach's legacy. Great coaches often have amazing assistant coaches who go on to have successful (and less successful) head-coaching careers of their own. So check out this list of NFL coaches on the Bill Parcells coaching tree and vote up the best. Which coaches who learned with Parcells would you most want at the head of your franchise?
