List of Pittsburgh Pirates (NHL) head coaches
This is a complete list of head coaches of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Quakers in the National Hockey League (NHL). Granted a franchise by the NHL in 1925, the Pirates played in Pittsburgh from 1925 to 1930 and then moved to Philadelphia and became the Philadelphia Quakers. After their only season in Philadelphia, the franchise was cancelled due to financial problems. Both cities were awarded expansion teams over a quarter of a century later (the Flyers and Penguins).
