Chelios is older than Babcock - how rare is that?

According to wikipedia:
Mike Babcock (born April 29, 1963 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada)
Chris Chelios (born Christos Kostas Tselios January 25, 1962 in Chicago, Illinois)

Is it rare that a coach is younger than one of the players he is coaching?

Paul Maurice was younger than 9 players in his first season as head coach with Hartford. But, how often do you get a 31 year old head coach?

Actually, I believe Maurice was 28 when he was hired to head up the former Hartford Whalers in 1995-96.

I believe he was the youngest coach in the league since Gary Green (yes, that Gary Green) when Green was hired to be the coach of the Capitals in the early 80s.

Gary Green was 26 when he was named coach of the Capitals so there must have been a number of players older then him at that time.
