Coaching Wins

A list of any head coach who compiled 100 wins and was a head coach in Bergen or Passaic County for any period of time. Included will be those who won games as head coaches in other counties, as long as that coach has 100 career wins. This is not 100% complete and any coach who has won 100 will be added as time goes on. In addition, I am also adding coaches from other areas with a Bergen or Passaic County connection.

Further, I will list coaches with close to 100 wins, partially to see how close active coaches are from the 100 mark.
