Coaches of the JDR era


I was wondering how we'd do if we'd canned JDR and replaced him with a current or former NFL head coach. I found a pretty neat little reference site that supplied some interesting info -- http://www.pro-football-reference.com/coaches/ 

Coaches are ranked by winning percentage. Don't know if they'll show when I post this, but the active coaches are in bold. I italicized head coaches who went on to coach other teams.

Successful double-dippers: Dungy, Belichick, Holmgren (maybe), Coughlin, Gruden (with a BIG assist from his predecessor), Vermeil. There are many more unsuccessful returnees.
