    Default Has Any Coach Won Super Bowls With More Than 1 Team?

    I know there have been coaches who have coached more than 1 team to the Super Bowl, but has any won with 2 different teams? I don't think so. Here are the ones, and this is from memory, who have coached different teams to the Super Bowl:

    Bill Parcells(2 wins with Giants/1 loss with Patriots)

    Don Shula(1 loss with Colts/2 wins with Dolphins)

    Mike Holmgren(1 win with Packers/1 loss with Seahawks)

    Dick Vermeil(1 loss with Eagles/1 win with Rams)

    Am I missing anybody?
    I root for 2 teams; The Cardinals and whoever is playing Dallas.

    It's wikipedia, so take it FWIW, but

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl

    Neveralities
    • There has never been a Super Bowl overtime, although three games have been tied in the final minute.
    • There has never been a Super Bowl shutout; every Super Bowl participant to date has scored at least 3 points.
    • No Super Bowl has ever been scoreless at halftime.
    • No team or head coach has won more than two consecutive Super Bowls
    • No coach has ever won a Super Bowl with two different clubs.
    • No starting quarterback has ever won Super Bowls on two different teams. (Twice starting QBs have have played on different teams but each has only won once.)
    • No Super Bowl host has ever played in the Super Bowl.
    And since none of the head coaches still in it have never won it before (Wisenhunt being the only one that's even been that far as a HC) it won't be happening this year.

    Five coaches have taken two different clubs to the Super Bowl: Don Shula (Colts and Dolphins), Dick Vermeil (Eagles and Rams), Bill Parcells (Giants and Patriots), Dan Reeves (Broncos and Falcons]] and Mike Holmgren (Packers and Seahawks).

    I would like to see this one be broken this year.

    Although, Don Shula's Baltimore Colts were AFL Champions a couple of times I believe. They lost SB 3, but before there were SB's they won AFL titles, which was the original league.

    He then went on to win SB's with the Miami Dolphins. So in a way, he's the only coach to win championships with two different teams.
    You mean soccer? The sport for 4th graders that foreigners take seriously?

    The Colts weren't in the AFL. They were an NFL franchise that moved to the AFC after the merger.

    That's why they were able to play the Jets in Super Bowl 3 (Which was the Colts' last year in the NFL/C)

    edit: Shula never won the NFL championship. If you don't count winning it before facing the Jets in SB III anyways. (Since it was still the "NFL Championship" that year)

    The Colts are the only franchise to represent both the NFL and then the AFC. They along with the Browns and Steelers moved to the AFC as a part of the merger. And I forgot about Reeves who I believe is tied with Levy and Bud Grant with the most losses.

    No Super Bowl host has ever played in the Super Bowl.
    Of course, most of the Superbowls appear in Florida

    The closest were the Rams when they played the Steelers in the Rose Bowl.

    Super Bowl XIX was close with the 49ers playing at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, Ca.
