11. Matt LaFleur, Green Bay Pakcers

Matt LaFleur has the most wins in his first three years in NFL history, winning 13 games each season with the Packers. That being said, the Packers have failed to make the Super Bowl in any of those years despite getting two MVP seasons from Aaron Rodgers. He deserves credit for the wins, but we will see his real value if Rodgers leaves this offseason.

10. Bruce Arians, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bruce Arians is similar to LaFleur due to the fact that they both benefitted from an elite quarterback. However, unlike his NFC counterpart, Arians actually turned that into a Super Bowl by beating the Packers in the NFC Championship. It is unclear how much longer Bruce Arians has to coach, but right now, he is a top-10 coach.

9. Mike Vrabel, Tennessee Titans

Mike Vrabel is likely going to win the Coach of the Year award this season and that is great, but you have to turn it into playoff success. The Titans have overachieved in the regular season since hiring Mike Vrabel but until he gets over that postseason hump, you can't rank him higher than ninth.

8. Pete Carroll, Seattle Seahawks

This is one I battled with as I initially ranked Pete Carroll a few spots lower on this list as it feels like he is losing his edge as a head coach. However, it is hard to hold one bad season against him when he has been so great for the Seahawks, even if he was carried by an elite defense and Russell Wilson. It is really hard to rank Carroll any lower when he has a Super Bowl ring and nine playoff appearances in 12 seasons.
