Coming this fall, four new coaches will join Bill Cowher in Quick Hit Football:
•Brian Billick - Super Bowl-winning coach of the Baltimore Ravens
Billick compiled a 42-28 record (.600) in his first four years with the Baltimore Ravens, including a Super Bowl title in 2000. Baltimore defeated the New York Giants, 34-7, in Super Bowl XXXV, highlighted by its record-setting defense anchored by Ray Lewis. Prior to Baltimore, Billick was highly regarded for his masterful offensive coordination in Minnesota, where he set several offensive records, including most points scored in a season (556) and most touchdowns (41.)
- Jimmy Johnson - Two-time Super Bowl Winner and an NCAA Championship Title
Johnson was the first head coach in football history to win both a Super Bowl (Dallas Cowboys in 1992 and 1993) and an NCAA Championship (University of Miami in 1987). His postseason winning percentage of .875 (7-1 record) is the second best in NFL history. Johnson remains a prominent figure in the game, offering his expert analysis each week as a commentator for FOX NFL Sunday.
- Dan Reeves - Four-time Super Bowl coach and NFL Coach of the Year
The youngest head coach upon taking the reins of the Denver Broncos in 1981, Reeves coached Denver to six post-season berths, five divisional titles, three conference crowns and three Super Bowl appearances in 12 years. In fact, he led the Broncos to the Super Bowl three times during a span of four years.
- Tom Landry - Two-time Super Bowl-winner and Coaching Icon
One of the most successful coaches in NFL history, Landry compiled a 250-162-6 record in regular season play, winning 20 of his 36 playoff games in his 29 years. Landry guided the Cowboys to a record five Super Bowls, winning two of them. During his tenure, Dallas won 14 division championships in 21 consecutive winning seasons dominating opponents with a crushing defense led by Randy White and Ed "Too Tall" Jones, and the elusive speed of Tony Dorsett.
As previously announced, Bill Cowher, long-time coach of the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers, was signed as the 'Head Coach' of Quick Hit Football. Currently a studio analyst for the NFL Today on CBS, Cowher will provide critical insight and tips to players of all levels.
