91. Some have
Not these days, but in the past, player-managers were fairly common. More recent ones were Pete Rose and Frank Robinson. Probably the most famous was Frankie Frisch, who played second while running the old Gas House Gang in St. Louis.

But, yeah Landry was "natty" and all, and Shula looked cool in his sweater, but football coaches have always looked to me like they're not really in the game.

Vince Lombardi looked like a garbage collector or fish vendor on his way to a funeral.
