Reid Voted Third-Best Coach Of The Decade

As part of their decade retrospective on the National Football League in the 2000s, *USA Today *named Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick their coach of the decade. While Belichick received all 10 first-place votes, Eagles' head coach Andy Reid finished tied for third in the voting with former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher.

From 2000 to 2009, Reid won 103 regular season games (a .648 winning percentage) to go along with his 10 playoff victories.

Here's what *USA Today *had to say about Reid's decade at the helm of the Eagles:

"After taking over a 3-13 team in 1999, Reid has turned the Eagles into one of the NFL's elite teams. Reid has been named NFL coach of the year twice, and compiled the best win total (108), winning percentage (.617), and playoff victory total (10) in Eagles history. He has won five division titles, gotten his team to the NFC championship game five times and the Super Bowl once. Among coaches with 100 games under their belt, Reid's winning percentage is second among active coaches, behind Belichick."

Former Indianapolis Colts' head coach Tony Dungy finished in second place, while Tennessee Titans' head coach Jeff Fisher came in fifth.
