The Top NFL Assistants

Greg Gabriel at The National Football Post reviews the best assistant coaches in the NFL.

“Make no mistake about it: the NFL is a coach’s league.

“Except for maybe the quarterback position, the talent level from team to team is fairly close. The teams that have the best coaching staffs are the teams that have a chance to win. With that said, in my 30 years in the league I have come across some very good coaches — men that I have a huge amount of respect for because they have worked extremely hard to perfect their craft.”

It’s no coincidence that the only quarterbacks coach on this list (Pep Hamilton) will actually be an offensive coordinator this year. Good ones don’t last long.

Gabriel is a former Bears personnel man so there are a fair number of ex-Bears coaches on this list including current defensive backs coach Jon Hoke
