Sometimes, our favorite teams have been led by coaches/managgers that were not fit for the job, unpopular, or just plain awful.

My Sabres have luckily not been plagued by bad coaches: Rick Dudley, John Muckler, Ted Noilan, and Lindy Ruff.

But the same can't be said for most of us.

Who are the worst coaches/managers ever on your favorite team?

I'll make a few predictions for you guys:

BillDel- M.L. Carr of the Celtics (Pitino DID draft Paul Pierce)

Sandra- Bryan Trottier, when he briefly coached the Rangers (I REALLY hope she posts on this one- this is a slam-dunk choice for her)

HD MM- Joel Skinner of the Indians- Between Hargrove, Manuel, and Wedge, there was this guy.

I don't consider Skinner a bad coach. Plus he was only our interm coach in 2002 in between the Charlie Manual firing and the Eric Wedge hiring. Skinner's been our third base coach ever since.

If you want bad coaches, all you have to do is reference the Cav's from 1999-2003. Our coaches consisted of Randy Wittman (99-01), John Lucas (01-03) and Kieth Smart (2003). But even then, I can't entirely blame the coaches for the miserable teams they inherited. I tend to blame the upper management, ownership and GM's responsible for drafting/assembling those embarrassing teams.

So THAT'S what the Cavs were like before LeBron.

Any coach of the DETROIT LIONS (except Joe Shmidt).
Red Wings - Ned Harkness (Darkness with Harkness). Old time Red Wing fans will certainly remember that.

actually the lockout was the death sentence...Empire actually was a really good channel (and free to air for a long time) :)
hmm, maybe but i think the management of sabres at the time played the biggest part, there was talk of the sabres folding then.
