How many head coaches deserve to be fired this year? And how many will? Better question: Which of the 32 head men in the league will get fired first?
The odds-on favorite would have to be Norv Turner, an offensive-minded coach who should be collecting royalties every time someone even mutters "hot seat." Norv has been the perfectly "fire-able" head man for the Chargers since 2007. Turner has reached the playoffs twice with his team, but he seems ill-equipped to deal with its latest struggles in arguably the worst division in pro football.
Another good bet would be "anybody working for Jerry Jones." And that head coach happens to be Jason Garrett, the Princeton-educated man who was promoted from offensive coordinator after the ouster of Wade Phillips in the middle of 2010. The Cowboys went 8-8 under Garrett in his first full season at the helm. While it's still early in Garrett's tenure, nobody can stop Jerry Jones from running his organization as he sees fit.
