Football Coach

The Resume

    (August 17, 1963- )
    Head Coach, Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders (1997-2001, 2018-2021)
    Head Coach, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2002-2008)
    Super Bowl championship (2003)

Why he might be annoying:

    He looks like the evil Chucky doll from the 'Child's Play' movies.
    At the end of the Raiders' 2001 season, his agent announced that he would not return to Oakland as head coach after his contract was up following the 2002 season (apparently to get the Raiders to let him out of his contract early, and to get other teams interested in buying out his contract for little compensation).
    The Raiders let him out of his contract a year early, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had to give the Raiders some high draft picks for the next three years, plus $8 million, to hire him away.
    He resigned four years into his second tenure with the Raiders after it was revealed he sent emails that had sexist, misogynistic and racist language used in them during his tenure at ESPN (October 11, 2021).

Why he might not be annoying:

    Despite being continuously the youngest head coach in the NFL from 1998 to 2002, he was one of the winningest, with a record of 40-28 with his first team, the Oakland Raiders.
    During his tenure with the Raiders, they became the first team to win its division in back-to-back years (2000-01) since 1987.
    He is ranked in People Magazine's 50 Most beautiful People in the World (2001).
    In his first year with Tampa Bay, he coached the Bucs to a Super Bowl victory over his former team, the Raiders (January 26, 2003).
