Wow!

Wow!

That is a tough one. 

I really liked Dick Williams for baseball.

Let me think on the others.

Earl Weaver - former manager of the Baltimore Orioles back in the 70's. Claim to fame was getting ejected from games.

Here is one of Earl's "finest" moments:

Some of my favorites were Bud Grant, John Madden, Paul "Bear" Bryant, Gene Stallings (he reminded me of Bryant), Dean Smith and Lou Holtz.

Chuck Noll is definitely up there, probably at the top spot, when it comes to NFL head coaches, but I may surprise some of you by saying that two other favorites that I had were....

O.A. "Bum" Phillips - If they did not have to play against the Steelers for the AFC Championship, I would have definitely jumped on the "Luv Ya Blue" bandwagon mostly because of Phillips.

The other NFL coach who I also liked coached the Oilers......Jerry Glanville.  He was the complete antithesis of Chuck Noll, but I liked that.  The guy rolled the dice when coaching.  He did not seem to take the game too serious, but he was successful.

I liked the Raiders when I was a kid, so John Madden and he was a good show also.

I remember Billy Martin managing the A's and thinking he was a genius considering what he had to work with.

Just a general thought. Dick Vermeil hasn't coached in Philly in 30 years. Still billboards in town with his face on them promoting things. Everyone knows who he is.

When the Bears won the Super Bowl way back when I thought Mike Ditka was the greatest. Then he became a cartoon character and he began to overdo everything. He was everywhere in Chicago. TV, radio, newspapers and commercials. Too much overexposure.

Ozzie Guillen almost the same way. Gave us World Series title but quickly got too big for Chicago.

I go with Ray Meyer, legendary DePaul basketball coach.
