9780786465576: NFL Head Coaches: A Biographical Dictionary, 1920-2011

The 466 men who have held the increasingly demanding and prestigious position of Head Coach in the National Football League and the two leagues that merged into it (the All America Football Conference of the 1940s and the American Football League of the 1960s) form an exclusive club. This book essentially answers three questions about every professional head coach since 1920: Who was he? What were his coaching approach and style, in terms of both leadership and gridiron tactics? How successful was he?

Every entry begins with standard background information, followed by each coach's yearly regular season and postseason coaching record, and then his statistical tendencies toward scoring, defense and play calling. The entry then addresses the three questions noted above.

About the Author:

John Maxymuk is a reference librarian at Rutgers University, living in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. He has written poetry, book and movie reviews, travel pieces, feature articles in magazines, library-related articles in academic journals, and organizational newsletters. He has been the internet columnist for The Bottom Line: Managing Library Finances since 1997 and was the issue editor for the Notable Documents issue of Journal of Government Information for 10 years. He is listed in Contemporary Authors and in Who's Who in America.

From Booklist:

There have been 466 head coaches over the course of the 91–year history of the National Football League. Reference librarian Maxymuk documents them all here, with standard background information on each coach, his coaching record, and statistical tendencies toward scoring and calling plays. Appendixes include a ranking of coaches by their wins and an extensive bibliography. This is no coffee-table sports book (there are no photographs, and the text is dense, both in style and as laid out on the page), but it is a good choice for public library circulating collections, especially where there are football fans. --Rebecca Vnuk
