Some coaches in sports just don't know how to control themselves. Others strategically get ticked off to get under the skin of the referees or inspire their teams. Whatever the case may be, these are the 15 most hot-tempered coaches in sports.
Gundy isn't that hot-tempered on the field normally, but his popular tirade a couple years ago lands him on this list. Anyone remember his "I'm a man, I'm 40. Come after me!" fiasco?
Saban doesn't usually let his temper get out of control, but rather strategizes and picks his spots. When he's getting upset at something, there's usually a reason behind it.
Most NBA fans can probably imagine Rivers' raspy yelling voice in their heads right now. Whether he's yelling at his own team or at the referees, the Clippers' coach has quite the temper.
As a player, Roy was one of the biggest hot heads in NHL history. As a coach, he got fined a hefty amount for punching the glass between the team benches in his very first game last season.
Even though he's not coaching anymore, Knight's temper was legendary. Sometimes things got a little out of hand, but he lives on as one of the best coaches and hot-headed coaches in college basketball history.
The former Rangers coach and current Canucks coach hasn't had the best luck lately. That surely hasn't helped him with the temper that has earned him several fines in recent years.
One of the best college basketball coaches today, Calipari knows when to get on his players. He's so emotionally invested in every minute of every game that he will occasionally blow up on his team, the referees or both.
The Jets' coach likes joking around with the media, but when he gets on the field he's all business. As a defensive-minded coach he can often let his temper get out of hand.
The coach of the LSU Tigers lets his temper get to him on occasion, but he usually uses that to rally his troops. Like many other coaches, his temper can actually end up being a good thing for his team.
Oklahoma's head man has gotten heated on a number of occasions. Whether it be on the field or off of it, he's a passionate guy and that can sometimes lead to his temper showing itself.
Pelini is squarely on the hot seat this season and that could end up bringing out his temper even more. He could be complaining to an official or yelling at his team, but Pelini gets out of control on a regular basis.
Guillen's temper and lack of filter are what have him out of work right now. He's a pretty good manager, but since he can't really control what he says or does, he's currently out of work.
On the sidelines, Harbaugh can routinely be seen throwing his headset in disgust when calls don't go his way. He gets fired up and sometimes crosses a line, but it has seemingly worked for him so far.
One of the truly entertaining managers in baseball history, Lou Piniella's on-field tirades were legendary. A lot of it was for show, but Sweet Lou obviously had quite the temper.
Cox is retired and in the MLB Hall of Fame now, but he has the most ejections of all time in major league history. He was entertaining with his on-field demonstrations and somehow still managed to maintain a relationship with most umpires.
