Nick Skorich

Nick Skorich

Nick Skorich started his NFL head coaching career with the Philladelphia Eagles in 1961. Skorich was a coach with a defensive background and got results out of Philly in his first season. Even though he missed the playoffs, his Eagles finished 10-4. Two seasons later, he was run out of town as the Philladelphia finished with no more than 3 wins in 14 tries each season. Skorich was able to find work as a defensive coach under Blanton Collier of the Browns, and when Collier hung up the whistle, Skorich took over. Nick led the Browns to playoff appearances in each of his first 2 years as coach as they won the AFC Central crown in '71 and earned a wild-card birth in '72. Skorich's Browns fell the next year, as even though they managed a winning record, they dropped to 3rd in the ever improving AFC Central. The bottom fell out the next year, and Skorich was quietly dismissed at the end of the year.
