Great head coaches are an indelible part of NFL history.
They are mentors who have guided their teams to glory and their players to become legends and Hall of Famers.
Their wisdom helped their wards play the right way, leading to individual accolades and championships.
The more they do it, the closer they get to Canton, Ohio.
From the current pool of NFL head coaches, Bill Belichick should be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
He has six Super Bowl rings and three Coach of the Year honors.
However, former running back LeSean McCoy believes that there’s one coach who has a more impressive resume than the New England Patriots’ mentor and de facto general manager.
“Every team Andy Reid has been on, they find ways to win, right? When he went to Philadelphia, they wasn’t good. He changed that thing around. When he get to the Chiefs, they wasn’t good. He changed that thing around. That’s the definition of a really good coach,” McCoy said on a recent episode of FS1’s “Speak.”

McCoy has a point, not just because he won a Super Bowl with Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs.
But he does make sense when you look at Reid’s volume of work.
Reid only has two losing records in 23 seasons as head coach.
While he didn’t win a Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles, he still led the squad to four NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl appearance.
He finally got over the hump in Kansas City, winning two Vince Lombardi Trophies.
As McCoy said, Belichick may have more Super Bowl titles.
But how has he been without Tom Brady?
Meanwhile, Reid has a chance to chase Belichick’s tally with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback.NEXT: Dan Orlovsky Blames 1 Person For Mac Jones' Poor Play
