Hot Seat Carousel: Where Will Every Soon-to-Be-Fired Player, Coach End Up?
While some NFLers like J.J. Watt have played their way into having a spot next season, other players and coaches have regressed to a point where they will likely be getting fired after the season.
Instead of trying to pick a team that each soon-to-be fired player or coach will find himself on, it's much more practical to think of what their role will be next year on a new team.
That being said, let's take a look at where some much-maligned players and coaches are headed.

Role in 2013: Backup quarterback
While many would like to believe that Matt Cassel will catch on somewhere as a starter, he just doesn't have the skill set or the young age to warrant that decision.
Similar to ex-teammate Kyle Orton, Cassel will attempt to find a backup job with a high-profile team like Dallas.
As a former backup quarterback in college, this signal-caller's peak value may be just that; he's a serviceable backup who can step up in a pinch.

Role: Head Coach
It's not as though Joe Vitt will get fired; he'll just have too much interest coming in to decline the chance at being a head coach.
Remarkably, the former assistant has turned the New Orleans Saints' season around and has given his team some hope.
A team with a struggling quarterback and misunderstood run game (New York Jets?) will pursue this coach.
Role: Starting quarterback
This next season's draft class is so underwhelming at quarterback that most teams would prefer to sign Michael Vick to a short deal and draft their signal-caller next season.
Even when he's turning the ball over, Vick is an exciting player to watch and he does things that many other quarterbacks can't do.
He may get a two-year deal for a lot of money and he'll be a temporary fix for a team in months to come.

Role: Offensive Coordinator
You heard it here first. Mike Munchak likely won't be a part of the Titans' coaching staff in 2013 after another disappointing season.
Consider, though, that Munchak was able to get Chris Johnson going and the coach designed a solid offense for Jake Locker.
He'll find his niche as an offensive coordinator on a team with a speedy running back (think Kansas City, Oakland).

Role: Quarterbacks coach
A less-stressful role may be just what Andy Reid needs right now. The chance to go to a place like Cleveland, where he has a history with general manager Tom Heckert and can work with a young quarterback like Brandon Weeden, is a perfect fit.
Reid isn't looking so hot as a head coach anymore, but he'd be a great positional coach on a small team.
