Where every NFL head coach 10 years ago is today

Posted by: Chris Vannini on Thursday June 15, 2017


Earlier this week, we looked at where the current NFL head coaches were 10 years ago. But where were the teams 10 years ago?

Here’s where the NFL coaches of 10 years ago are today.


- 14 of the coaches are no longer in coaching. Tom Coughlin is in the Jaguars front office. Tony Dungy, Jon Gruden, Herman Edwards and Brian Billick are all in TV. Jeff Fisher, Norv Turner and Cam Cameron were still coaching last year.

- 5 are still head coaches of the same team: Marvin Lewis, Mike McCarthy, Bill Belichick, Sean Payton and Mike Tomlin.

- 3 are head coaches of another NFL team. Jack Del Rio is now with the Raiders, Andy Reid is now with the Chiefs, and John Fox is now with the Bears.

- 3 are college coaches. Bobby Petrino is (back) at Louisville, Lovie Smith is at Illinois, and Lane Kiffin is at FAU after stops at Tennessee, USC and Alabama.

- 7 are still in the NFL as assistants, with Mike Nolan the only one a position coach.
