John Fox becomes 6th coach to take 2 teams to Super Bowl
With the Broncos' win in the AFC Championship, Fox has joined a very exclusive list.
John Fox couldn't manage to get his hands on the Lombardi Trophy when his Carolina Panthers reached the Super Bowl in 2004. Now he'll get another chance at it.
With the Denver Broncos' 26-16 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday, Fox has become just the sixth coach in NFL history to lead two different teams to the Super Bowl. Fox, who has led the Broncos to division titles in each of his first three seasons, also took the Panthers to the title game during the 2003 season. He lost that game to the Patriots on a last-second field goal by Adam Vinatieri.
The Broncos hired Fox in 2011, and he's rewarded them with three consecutive playoff appearances.
Fox's second trip to the title game puts him in very exclusive company. Below are the other five head coaches to take multiple teams to the Super Bowl.
|Head coach||Team||Super Bowl||Team||Super Bowl|
|Don Shula||Baltimore Colts||III||Miami Dolphins||VI, VII, VIII, XVII, XIX|
|Bill Parcells||New York Giants||XXI, XXV||New England Patriots||XXXI|
|Dan Reeves||Denver Broncos||XXI, XXII, XXIV||Atlanta Falcons||XXXIII|
|Dick Vermeil||Philadelphia Eagles||XV||St. Louis Rams||XXXIV|
|Mike Holmgren||Green Bay Packers||XXXI, XXXII||Seattle Seahawks||XL|
