Pete Prisco ranks the 32 NFL head coaches

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Pete Prisco ranked each of the 32 NFL head coaches.  Before we get to Ken Whisenhunt, a few comments on where he ranked other guys.  Prisco is as old school as they come, and he hates Chip Kelly.  Don't believe me?  Just go look through his Twitter feed.  He ranked Kelly 12th on this list.  That isn't necessarily ridiculous....until you look at the fact that he has Bill O'Brien ahead of him.  That's just silly.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt comes in at #20.  When I initially saw that he was that high, I was a little surprised, but if you look at the guys behind him, you can almost make a case for Whiz there- with a couple of exceptions.  I would absolutely put Mike McCoy, Gary Kubiak and Lovie Smith ahead of him.

I am sure the justification for Whiz ahead of those guys is that he has been to a Super Bowl.  That's great, but he has been terrible otherwise.  One good year- a 9-7 year at that- shouldn't have him ahead of the guys I listed.

Here are Prisco's comments on The Whiz:

He is in his second stint as a head coach. In his first season with the Titans, they went 2-14, which drops his overall record 47-65, which also includes his six years in Arizona. He did take the Cardinals to the Super Bowl in 2008 and came within seconds of being the champs.
