Bill Belichick has won four Super Bowls with the New England Patriots, more than any other active coach.

There are 32 head coaching positions in the NFL. Early on "Black Monday" following the 2014 NFL regular season final Sunday, 3 head coaches were fired to join 1 other coach that had previously been released. These include Mike Smith from the Atlanta Falcons, Marc Trestman from the Chicago Bears, and Rex Ryan from the New York Jets. Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers mutually parted ways.[1] Dennis Allen from the Oakland Raiders had been fired early in the season.[2] Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone opted out of his team's contract.

The longest tenured head coach on his current team is Bill Belichick, who has been with the New England Patriots since the 2000 NFL season. Belichick also has the most wins among active coaches, as well as most Super Bowl appearances (6) and Super Bowl wins (4) as head coach.[3] Others to have won a Super Bowl as head coach with their current team include Tom Coughlin (2), Mike Tomlin, Sean Payton, Mike McCarthy, John Harbaugh and Pete Carroll.

  2. ^ Jason Garrett, who was the Cowboys assistant head coach, was named as the interim coach of the Dallas Cowboys on November 9, 2010 after head coach Wade Phillips was fired mid-season after a 45–7 loss to the Green Bay Packers making the Cowboys 1–7 on the season.[10] Jason Garrett was hired as the full-time head coach following the season.[11]
  3. ^ Gary Kubiak was fired after Week 14 of the 2013 NFL season. Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips was appointed as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.[16]
  4. ^ Sean Payton was suspended on March 21, 2012 for the 2012 season (from April 1 through Super Bowl XLVII) for his role in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.
