That's not true. Off the top of my head I know that Al Arbour did it.
EDIT: Also, there is a huge survivorship bias issue with that stat, even if it were true. Coaches that don't win the Cup usually don't last more than a handful of seasons. Coaches that win the Cup early in their career are much more likely to stay on long term with a team. You're working with a very skewed sample.
