The Toronto Maple Leafs are a professional team based in Toronto, Ontario. The team is a member of the Northeast Division in the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL) and is one of the Original Six teams of the NHL. There have been 36 head coaches in their franchise history; one during the era of the Toronto Arenas (1917–1919), six during the era of the Toronto St. Patricks (1919–1927) and the rest under the Toronto Maple Leafs (1927–present). Five Maple Leafs coaches have been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as players: Dick Irvin, Joe Primeau, King Clancy, Red Kelly and Dick Duff while four others have been inducted as builders: Conn Smythe, Hap Day, Punch Imlach and Roger Neilson.
Frank Carroll has the highest winning percentage of any Maple Leafs coach, with a .625 record from the 24 games he coached from 1920 to 1921. Neither Mike Rodden nor Dick Duff, who coached only two games each in 1927 and 1980 respectively, won a game with the team. Dan Maloney has the worst record of any who coached more than a season, with a .328 winning percentage from 160 games. Punch Imlach coached the most games of any Maple Leafs coach with 750 games from 1959 to 1969. Pat Burns is the franchise's only coach to win the Jack Adams Award awarded to the head coach "adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success". Pat Quinn also won the award, but with two different teams prior to coaching the Maple Leafs. The current coach of the Maple Leafs is Ron Wilson, who signed a four year contract with the team after Paul Maurice was released at the end of the 2007–08 season.
