NFL Hot Seat Watch: Gauging the Temperature for Every Head Coach so Far

The main reasons for the circus in New York should also be out of New York in March of 2013.

Head coaches around the NFL get fired every year. For the most part, the firings are predictable, as the coaches have been on the hot seat for the season beforehand. This year there are quite a few coaches on the hot seat.

Every NFL team has its own situation to deal with when it comes to the head coaching staff, as well as how hot its coach's seat truly is. We'll explore the situations for each team around the NFL and see just where every head coach is sitting before the season.

 

Scale used to measure how hot the seat is:

32 degrees: 0 percent chance of firing during or after season

70 degrees: 25 percent chance of firing during or after season

100 degrees: 50 percent chance of firing during or after season

150 degrees: 75 percent chance of firing during or after season

212 degrees: 95 percent chance of firing during or after season

Side note: As a former civil engineering major in college, it just felt right to use these numbers. 32 degrees is when water freezes. 212 is when it boils. 70 degrees is what I keep my apartment at, so that seemed like the right number for comfortable. The other two just felt right as arbitrary values.
