The past few years the division has been the Denver Broncos’ to lose. However, has that been because of coaching, or having one of the best quarterbacks of the past generation in Peyton Manning?
It’s certainly a judgement call, but former Denver head coach John Fox has certainly built a good reputation.
After four years and 46 wins in the Mile High City, Fox moved on to Chicago. Now the AFC West is welcoming two new coaches after the Broncos hired former Houston Texans’ head coach Gary Kubiak, and the Oakland Raiders brought in former Jacksonville Jaguars’ head man, Jack Del Rio.
The division currently has zero head coaches who manned the post in 2012. Kansas City’s Andy Reid and the San Diego Chargers’ Mike McCoy both began their stints in 2013. The four coaches however has 36 years of head coaching experience between them, which is plenty of time to critique, question and grade their performances.
Here is how we rank the four coaches who all will be vying for the AFC West Championship and a top four playoff seed next season.
Next: No. 4 -- Mike McCoy, San Diego Chargers
