Long before Andy Reid was shown the NovaCare door, many Eagles fans were longing for a Super Bowl-winning coach — Brian Billick, Bill Cowher, Tony Dungy, Jon Gruden — to come to the Delaware Valley and win another ring. The problem is that no coach with a SB title has moved to another franchise and repeated.

A total of 11 coaches have fit that criteria, and only two of them even returned to the big game. Neither of them won it.
