Odd how 15% of people who took this test couldn't name Belichick even provided with a picture of him! Also, I'm a Giants fan from NY, and always make fun of how the Giants are mostly concerned with winning, and the Jets with winning the back pages...it shows here, as the head coach of the Jets, Rex Ryan, was known by more people than 2-time Super Bowl winner Tom Coughlin. Giants continue to (just as they like it) be in the shadow, publicity-wise, of the team that shares their stadium and city, and that hasn't won - or even been to - a Super Bowl since SB III was played to decide the 1968 season.

I would have had no idea that was him. But I've at least heard of him and know which team he coaches which is way more that could be said for.. probably every other name on this list..

I love how you took the random results of a JetPunk quiz as unequivocal evidence to slam the Jets. Not like "Ryan" isn't the name of one of the most famous NFL coaches ever, or the name of any respectable current players...Someone's got a chip on their shoulder.

Belichick has coached the most games, won the most games, and has the highest winning percentage (with a minimum of 50 games) of all these guys. So he'd probably be the best person in the list to meet the definition of your made-up word.

I was embarrassed that I only got 14, until I saw that 18 of them are new in their position this year or the last 2 years. I'm still embarrassed, but less so.

Still a mystery to me why the coach with the second longest tenure is a guy who, although having a decent win/loss record, has never had his team win even a single playoff game, never mind get to the Super Bowl. All of the other coaches on this list hired before 2012 have at least been to a Super Bowl (except Garrett and that may well change soon) and in most cases, have won at least one. Even Pagano has made it a ways into the playoffs, only to run up against the Patriots. Is there a Bengal fan out there who can explain the team's fascination with this guy?

I'm not a Bengals fan, but as far as I am aware, the Bengals were a horrible team for many years before he got there, and after he took over in 2003, he almost immediately turned the franchise around. But since he has never won a playoff game, he is really going to be on the hot seat this season.

Mike Brown is not your typical owner. He's a particularly patient person who is also very loyal. With this year's run to the Super Bowl, I was quite surprised to hear how beloved he is among former Bengals players. He wanted to give Marvin Lewis every opportunity to succeed as head coach. Unfortunately, Marvin Lewis didn't have Joe Burrow at QB.

Seems like a solid rule of thumb that nearly 50% of coaches will have been hired in the previous 2 years. For this year, it looks like 14/32.

Is there more turnover in the last couple years than usual? I know some of these coaches are brand new but it feels like a couple years back I could have named all 32 easily. I struggled to go for 24/32.

On average, there are 6-7 new coaches per year, this year is slightly above average, although many of the coaches that were fired/retired were longer-tenured coaches, so there are some big ones on previous editions that are absent from this one.

Buccaneers' head coach is now Todd Bowles, not Bruce Arians.
