Last month, Mike Pettine was hired to be the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, their third head coaching hire since 2011. It’s pretty obvious that great NFL franchises don’t bounce between coaches like this, but how extreme is the Browns’ awfulness?
At the other end of the spectrum is the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are on just their third coach since the late 60s. In fact, the Browns have hired 13 head coaches (not including interim) since the Steelers brought in Chuck Noll in 1969.
The infographic below shows the span of each NFL team’s last three head coaches and when those coaches have won Super Bowls. I chose to go back three because some teams (Ravens, Texans) have only had three head coaches in their franchise’s history.
