    90%? that's very high standards.

    But, there could be other measures by which to determine someone to be a great coach, besides just winning %. Of course winning is a big part of the equation, but a coach who has to deal with disadvantages beyond their control and wins at, say, a 65-70% clip could be a VERY GREAT coach.

    Back to the 90% threshold. What coaches in any sport, throughout history, have won at that rate over their career? Bet it's a short list.

    By that 90% standard there has never been a great coach in football.

    Knute Rockne - 13 years at Notre Dame has the highest winning % at 88.1% Close, but not 90%.
    Frank Leahy - who coached at Boston College and Notre Dame is second at 86.4%
    Urban Meyer has a 85.1% career winning %.
    Nick Saban is at 77.4%

    In the NFL some guy named Guy Chamberlain holds the highest winning percentage in the pros at 78.4%.

    In Men's College Hoops it's:

    Sam Burton - West Texas A&M at 83.3%

    At third and fourth are:

    Adolf Rupp - Kentucky 82.2%
    John Wooden - UCLA 80.4%

    In WBB the top two are:

    Geno A. - UCONN 87.7%
    Leon Barmore - Louisiana Tech 86.7%
