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".
