List ranks Kelly No. 18 among coaches

Elliott Harrison of NFL.com unveiled his list of the best head coaches in the NFL, from No. 1-32.

Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly came in at No. 18 despite winning 10 games and an NFC East title as a rookie.

"Kelly is a man who could shoot up this board awfully quickly," Harrison wrote. "His first year in Philadelphia was a smashing success, as the Eagles won 10 games and took the NFC East title in the process. Kelly's explosive offense lived up to the billing, ranking second in the NFL and causing other teams to look at tempo more closely on both sides of the ball."

Here's the list of coaches ranked ahead of Kelly:

  1. Bill Belichick -- New England Patriots

  2. Sean Payton -- New Orleans Saints

  3. Jim Harbaugh -- San Francisco 49ers

  4. John Harbaugh -- Baltimore Ravens

  5. Tom Coughlin -- New York Giants

  6. Mike McCarthy -- Green Bay Packers

  7. Pete Carroll -- Seattle Seahawks

  8. John Fox -- Denver Broncos

  9. Mike Tomlin -- Pittsburgh Steelers

  10. Andy Reid -- Kansas City Chiefs

  11. Mike Smith -- Atlanta Falcons

  12. Jeff Fisher -- St. Louis Rams

  13. Bruce Arians -- Arizona Cardinals

  14. Lovie Smith -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  15. Marvin Lewis -- Cincinnati Bengals

  16. Rex Ryan -- New York Jets

  17. Chuck Pagano -- Indianapolis Colts
