Every year in the NFL, there are head coaching jobs that become available in late December and early January. Last season, the Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers all replaced their head coach.
Of those seven jobs, amazingly, two of them, the Chiefs and Jaguars, may be open again heading into the 2013 season. After studying each team’s record, history, etc., there looks to be another seven NFL head coaching jobs soon to be available.
The caveat is that somewhere along the way, there will be a firing that is not predictable.
Here are a list of the seven openings that look to be coming available and a coach that fits that team, city and ownership.
