Heading into the final weeks of the season, we switch gears a bit in this weekly edition of NFL Hot Seat Update.
We added a new severity level for the coaches all but fired already: "Burnt to a Crisp." This is followed by "On Fire," "Hot" and finally "Warm."
Another change following Week 15 is only the coaches with a status of "Warm" or greater will be listed. Perhaps to the surprise of many, almost half of the league's head coaches are not fairing so well in their job security at this point.
But this makes sense considering the average tenure of an NFL head coach is only about 3.25 years. This makes for a constantly evolving coaching carousel of new and old faces changing teams each year.
One interesting note this year is we have yet to see a single head coach get fired so far. I cannot remember the last time, if ever, no head coaches have been fired by this point in a season.
There are 14 coaches at least somewhat in danger of losing their jobs on this list.
