The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio has 267 members.
232 of those members were former players. 19 were coaches. And 16 made it because they were administrators, commissioners, owners, executives, or pioneers.
Every single one of the 19 coaches made it because of his duties as a head coach, which is completely understandable because they all won championships or earned many postseason berths.
But why has there never been an offensive or defensive coordinator elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame? Aren’t some position coaches worthy as well?
