Mark Dominik, Greg Schiano and the NFL's Biggest Franchise Saviors of 2012
Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Mark Dominik's decision to hire Greg Schiano to be the head coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has proven to be one of the best moves of the 2012 NFL season.

Since Schiano's arrival, the Bucs have morphed from an undisciplined team that fell apart under Raheem Morris' leadership a year ago into a tough-as-nails, never-say-die squad that has won three of its last four games. 

Things didn't look good at the start of the season, as the Buccaneers lost three of their first four games, but Schiano's disciplined approach has made an extremely positive impact on this young team.

At 4-4, the Bucs are within striking distance of a playoff berth in the NFC, being only one-half game behind the Seattle Seahawks—the team currently occupying the No. 6 seed. 

Besides hiring Schiano, Dominik has assembled a strong roster that is full of cornerstone players on both sides of the ball. Given another year or two, it's easy to envision the Bucs becoming a legitimate contender in the NFC. 

Schiano and Dominik aren't the only ones turning NFL franchises around this season, though.

Let's take a look at some other influential men who have proven to be the biggest franchise saviors of 2012.
