Best Answer

Lovie Smith of the Chicago Bears.

The first Super Bowl to have a team head coached by an African-American was Super Bowl XLI between the Bears and Indianapolis Colts. Ironically, both head coaches were African-American (Tony Dungy was the head coach of the Colts) but Smith was first as the Bears defeated the Saints in the NFC Championship game played several hours before the Colts defeated the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game.
