Women can do anything men can do and sometimes even better so I wouldn't put it past a women to ever being a head coach, and even a great one.

Of course, I think that I could, but women in general, NOT AT ALL!  1. because I really think that unless you have played in the NFL, you cant really be the best head coach (i'm sure there are people who disagree). 2. i just dont believe women should do some things. 3. i dont think a woman will get the respect she needs to be a successful coach 4. It takes knowledge of all aspects of the game to be a head coach despite having several different coaches on a team, and i dont think alot of women know the ins- and- outs of football enough to lead a team. Don't get me wrong, I know there are plenty of women who know more about the game than some men, but ALL aspects, i doubt it. I mean when I play madden, I am excellent on offense, but have been working on my defense for years. It's better but when playing like former football players, they can usually pick me apart and I still just call the play on special teams and let the computer do it for me. I think I would be an excellent coach only because I am excellent in general. In reality, only a fool would hire me. I would surround myself with other great coaches if I was allowed, but still...

Actually this may work better...when a player has to listen to a coach yell at them for not making plays, that's one thing....but when a player would have to listen to nagging....oooof. There would probably be alot more perfection on the field.
no  
#11 | 1552 days ago

I'd never say never, but the real questions is why aren't there more, any, at lower levels? Jr. High, High School, small communities that play 7-man or 9-man ball, etc. Wouldn't E:60 or SI jump all over a story like that? Until they start coaching in those ranks it's not gonna happen. Well maybe with the Raiders, but that's a whole other thing.
no  
#12 | 1551 days ago

dumbest question ever??
no

(Edited by VIOLET)

If there are female world leaders, prime ministers, etc. of course a woman can coach  NFL teams, is just that maybe no one is interested yet.

#14 | 1550 days ago

Isn't Wade Phillips a woman??
yes  
#15 | 1550 days ago

This is a setup question.  Im not going there

Women can do anything a man can do; as well as is a different story. Until a woman can prove herself on the field successfully, I must differ to VinDog on this one........HE$$ NO!!!!!!!!   You have to have a solid understanding of the level you are at before becoming a coach. No experience playing no REAL understanding as to what the player goes through.  Women, FYI there is a Women's Pro. league; look that way first..... 
no  
#17 | 1550 days ago

let me ask you this, what player would want a woman coach in the NFL?
no  
#18 | 1550 days ago

No Problem With It, But It Would Be Just The Awkward Feeling In The Locker Room.

 Okay, I admit, I'm biased. I'm a woman and it has been my dream since I was 14 to coach college football. Now I'm a realist, and I know this isn't going to happen, but I do believe that there is a woman out there that will, one day, make an excellent coach and lead her team to success. 
Football is a boy's club, but I think that most adult men (football players too) are mature enough to take direction from a female. There are many [male] coaches who haven't played at the college or pro level, so that excuse is baloney. And as for the lockeroom - ain't nothin' we haven't seen before. 
I believe with all my heart that football is about the game. If you win the game you win respect. I'm sure players would quit and fans would grumble and the media would conjure up some locker-room sex scandal, but if you're winning games, who cares? Its a long road but I don't doubt that one day some badass lady will lead her team to a Superbowl. I wish it could be me. 

And I am starting as a Pee-Wee coach and getting my teaching credential this summer so perhaps a future coaching high school ball isn't too far away... :-D

Easy. Al Davis. He was named the AFL's coach of the year in 1963 after leading a franchise that had previously gone 9-33 in it's short existence to a 10-4 mark.
I'm sure there are numerous others.

 I would say Charlie Weis has had a pretty successful career (yes I know, as an offensive coordinator, not head coach). Sucked at ND, but if he can help revive the Chiefs I suspect he will be a head coach before his untimely death by Twinkie. 
yes

Although yes, Big AL was sucessful please take an double take on the question.....NFL not early 60's AFL.......
no
