When you consider the average tenure NFL head coaches have with their current teams generally is about 3.25 years, it becomes clear that things change fast in this league. This is why a weekly update on a coaches' hot seat status is valuable.
In this weekly piece, I take a team-by-team look at every head coach in the NFL and give a temperature reading on his job status immediately following Week 1’s outcomes. To do this, every coach's seat is given a score between five possible status levels ranging from Hot to Cozy.
If a coach's seat is rated Hot, this obviously is the worst status available and likely means his days are numbered.
Then there’s a Warm rating, which is one level down from hot, followed by a Room Temperature rating, generally designated for a coach whose status is rather neutral.
After that we head into the more desired ratings such as Cool, which is a good status for a coach to be in, as it usually signifies he's headed in the right direction.
But the best of the best in NFL head coaches will receive the hard-earned status of having a Cozy seat to rest easy in. Coaches with this status should purchase nearby real estate and settle into their respective cities, as they clearly are going to be there for a while.
So without wasting any more of your limited attention span, let’s get right into the list.
