I am pretty sure LT (Lawerence Taylor) dumped it on Bill Parcells ----

Actually, it was Jim Burt that first dumped Gatorade on Parcells after a regular season game against the Redskins in 1985. Actually,it was Jim Burt and Harry Carson . Contrary to popular belief, the Gatorade cooler dump did NOT start with the NY Giants in Super Bowl XXI, but was copied from the 1984 Chicago Bears Central Division Championship team. Dan Hampton dumped the Gatorade cooler on Mike Ditka after winning the 1984 NFC. 25 years later the 1984 Chicago Bears and Dan Hamption will get their credit during Super Bowl XLII when a special will be run commemorating this event and putting to an end the myth that the 1986 NY Giants were the first to do this.

Why do the NFL players throw water on the coach after they win the Super Bowl?

That 'tradition' was started in 1985 by Jim Burt, defensive tackle for the New York Giants, when he dumped Gatorade on head coach Bill Parcells after a victory in a game against the Washington Redskins. The story goes that Parcells was very hard on Burt in the week prior to the game, telling him that the Washington offensive line was going to "eat him up". Burt dumped the Gatorade as a sort of retaliation against Parcells. Parcells good naturedly accepted it and the 'tradition' was born. The first time it was done in a Super Bowl was 1987 when Harry Carson dumped a cooler on Parcells after the game was over. It is done in celebration.
