First NFL playoff game with two Black Head Coaches

Edwards & Dungy

On this date in 2003, two black head coaches competed for the first time in a National Football league (NFL) playoff game.

The Indianapolis Colts' Tony Dungy and the New York Jets' Herman Edwards brought their teams to New York where the Jets won 41 to 0. Longtime friends, Dungy and Edwards were the only African American head coaches in the league. Edwards spent five seasons as Dungy's top assistant in Tampa before becoming New York's coach in 2001.
