40 best Chicago coaches or managers of all time

This is, one could argue, a golden age of Chicago coaching. Well, maybe a silver age. For one of the few times in Chicago sports history, two people who led city teams to championships are still heading those franchises — and are in position to win more.

Joe Maddon and Joel Quenneville are arguably among Chicago’s best coaches or managers ever. But other then stretches from 1906-1908 (Cubs’ Frank Chance, Sox’s Fielder Jones) or 1932-34 (Bears’ George Halas, Blackhawks’ Tom Gorman) or 1961-63 (Halas, Hawks’ Rudy Pilous), there’s never been two champion skippers working at the same time.

Here are the 40 best professional team coaches in Chicago sports history.
