Experience in the NFL is a determining factor for a head coach, the more experience an aspiring head coach has, the bigger his chance of winning the job in an interview for a vacant head coaching position.

Few are the head coaches who have been hired before the age of 40, much less think that a young head coach wins a Super Bowl in his early season with a franchise, but there are coaches who have come close to breaking the record that someone currently holds.

The first head coach to win a Super Bowl was Vince Lombardi, he was a 44-year-old veteran. The following season he won the Super Bowl again with the Packers. Many head coaches of the 20th century were men 40-50+ years old on average.

Who is the youngest coach to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy?

Sean McVay is the youngest head coach to ever win a Super Bowl and the Vince Lombardy trophy. He was chasing head coach Tomlin of Steelers who was the youngest at the time. But after the 2022 Super Bowl LVI win, Rams 23-20 Bengals, McVay is the new youngest head coach in the NFL to win the Super Bowl at 36 years old. 

Who is the second youngest coach to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy?

Mike Tomlin is the second youngest head coach to win a Super Bowl and the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the achievement he got with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2008 in his second season as head coach with Ben Roethlisberger. Two seasons later Tomlin and the Steelers lost in Super Bowl XLV against the Packers.

Tomlin's seasons with the Steelers have been good, 10 appearances in the playoffs with two conference championships, in addition to multiple awards as head coach of the Steelers. So far Tomlin is 154–85–2 (.643) in the regular season and 8–9 (.471) in the playoffs.
