August 6, 2014

New England head coach BILL BELICHICK guided the Patriots to a 12-4 record last season, earning the club its fifth consecutive AFC East title and advancing to the AFC Championship Game for the third season in a row. Belichick now has 19 career postseason wins, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer DON SHULA for the second-most in NFL history. Pro Football Hall of Famer TOM LANDRY (20) has the most playoffs wins all-time.

“Coach Belichick is the best coach that I’ve ever competed against,” says Denver Broncos quarterback

PEYTON MANNING. “I think it’s safe to say he’ll go down as the greatest NFL coach of all-time. His teams are always well-coached, always well-disciplined, and you know it’s going to be a 60-minute fight. To me, that speaks to his coaching.”

The head coaches with the most playoff wins:

Tom Landry Dallas Cowboys 20

Bill Belichick* Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots 19

Don Shula Baltimore Colts, Miami Dolphins 19

Joe Gibbs Washington Redskins 17

Chuck Noll Pittsburgh Steelers 16

Entering his 20th season as an NFL head coach, Belichick has amassed 218 wins, the fifth-most total victories by a head coach in league history.

“I think we’re lucky to have the finest coach in the history of the modern game,” says Patriots owner ROBERT KRAFT. “I think he has done an outstanding job.”

The head coaches with the most total wins in NFL history:

Don Shula Baltimore Colts, Miami Dolphins 347-173-6

George Halas Chicago Bears 324-151-31

Tom Landry Dallas Cowboys 270-178-6

Curly Lambeau Green Bay Packers, Chicago Cardinals, Washington Redskins 229-134-22

Bill Belichick* Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots 218-114-0
