The 50 Worst NFL Head Coaches of All Time
Seems like Frank Kush (#24 on this list) should have been #1. He was such a noted douche that #1 draft pick John Elway refused to play for him and forced a trade, so Kush not only screwed up the Colts while he was coach, for also for years to come. By the way, the Colts by-passed Dan Marino to take Elway, thus ending up with neither. If all that weren't enough notoriety for one man, Kush was also the coach when the Colts left Baltimore in the dead of night, a year after Kush had coached them to a sparkling no-win season in 1982.
Another option for #1 would be Bobby Petrino (who actually placed #4 on the list), who quit after the first 13 games of the 2007 season (3-10) in the traditional manly manner: skipping town without informing his own staff, leaving a farewell note in the locker room. Petrino was a good college coach before and after his NFL fiasco, but recently managed to screw that up as well, thanks to some off-the-field shenanigans. Since his notorious motorcycle incident earlier this year, Petrino has migrated to Western Kentucky, where he will try to rehabilitate his reputation by coaching the mighty Hilltoppers for the next few years. (They are a middling team in a second-rate conference.)
