Colin Cowherd starts off by naming Pittsburgh Steeler boss Mike Tomlin at number 10 on his list. Tomlin was efficient with the Steelers last season. He is known as a no-nonsense coach. At 36, Tomlin became the youngest NFL coach to win the Super Bowl against the Arizona Cardinals. Retired college football coach Urban Meyer ranks ninth on the list. Meyer won National Championships with multiple universities before he retired in 2018. Colin Cowherd named the upcoming University of Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley at number eight on the list. Riley is known for producing top NFL-level Quarterbacks. Under the tutelage of Riley, Oklahoma has produced QBs such as Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray, and Jalen Hurts.
Lincoln Riley on Baker Mayfield:
"If you look at this guy’s history, anytime he's had a down game or down stretch, he's bounced back in a positive way. That's his nature. He's a fighter, he's a competitor."

Kyle Shanahan tops Colin Cowherd’s Top 10 list
Spots seven through four on Colin Cowherd’s list are occupied by the likes of Brian Flores, Matt Nagy, John Harbaugh, and Sean McVay. Cowherd names Philadelphia Eagles boss – Doug Pederson – at number three on the list. He argues that Pederson’s post-season record is second to none which is why he is ranked so high up the list. Colin goes with Buffalo Bills boss Sean McDermott at number two. McDermott, who served as an assistant coach for the Panthers and Eagles in the past, is known for his offensive style of play. At number one, Colin Cowherd goes with the obvious choice of San Francisco 46ers’ Kyle Shanahan. The 40-year old led the 49ers to last year’s Super Bowl which they ultimately lost to Kansas City. However, Shanahan recently signed a new five-year extension with the San Francisco franchise which will keep him at the Bay till 2025.
