Description:
The National Football League Coach of the Year Award is presented annually by various news and sports organizations to the NFL head coach who has done the most outstanding job of working with the talent he has at his disposal. Currently, the most widely recognized award is presented by the Associated Press (AP). First presented in 1957, the AP award did not include American Football League teams. The Sporting News has given a pro football Coach of the Year award since 1947 and in 1949 gave its award to a non-NFL coach, Paul Brown of the AAFC's Cleveland Browns. In many years (1954, 1957–1960, 1962), TSN did not give an award; the awards it gave in the 1960s were to NFL coaches only, and since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, it has called the award the "NFL Coach of the Year." Other NFL Coach of the Year awards are presented by Pro Football Weekly-Pro Football Writers of America and the Maxwell Football Club.

The United Press International (UPI) NFL Coach of the Year award was first presented in 1955. From 1960 to 1969, before the AFL-NFL merger, an award was also given to the most outstanding coach from the AFL. When the leagues merged in 1970, separate awards were given to the best coaches from the AFC and NFC conferences. The UPI discontinued the awards after 1996.
