Best Sports Coach -- Professional (2001)
With the Avs' dominance, it may seem like a no-brainer, but some may start grumbling if former Hershey, Pennsylvania, farm-club coach Bob Hartley doesn't lead his team to the Stanley Cup promised land again. Still, it's hard to fault Hartley's handling of the team. And based on what's happened so far this season, it's entirely possible that he could overshadow perennial fan fave Mike Shanahan as the most popular coach around.
