These days, NFL Head Coaches are flying out of their little comfy chairs left and right, sometimes after just 1 season. So, I decided to make a list of 10 coaches who I think will get fired after the season, and potential replacements. Also, at the end of the slideshow, there are some dark horses. But enough babbling, let's kick off this list!
Zorn has alienated the fans in DC and Snyder will not be afraid to pull the trigger and can him.
Potential Replacement: Mike Shanahan
Snyder loves big names, and Shanahan wants to coach again.
The Cowboys are 2-1, why do you think Phillips will be fired? simple: the expectations in Big D are totally baked high. If Phillips doesn't win the Cowboys a playoff game this year, he's gone.
Potential replacement: Jason Garrett
Garrett was always a candidate for some HC capacity the past couple of years, and the Cowboys can stay in system and avoid trouble with finding a new coach.
Del Rio has not been very good in his tenure in Jacksonville. He needs to step up his coaching level, or he'll be on his way out.
Potential Replacement: Kevin Gilbride
Gilbride isn't exactly on anybody's radar as a potential Head Coach, but he fits the Jaguars system and would give them the mental toughness that they need.
Kubiak has not taken the Texans to the playoffs in his tenure, constantly producing 8-8 teams and has always been a dark horse for the playoffs, but never accomplish it. It's time to strip down and get better personnel.
Potential Replacement: Kyle Shanahan
like Garrett, the Texans can stay in the system and bypass the burden of searching for a new coach and go with the young gun in Shanahan.
Fox has been inconsistent in his time with Carolina, and it's time for a change. the team needs to move on and get a coach with more fire and intensity.
Potential Replacement: Leslie Frazier
the only team that Frazier woulda been coaching 3 years ago was the All-Gay Name team. His QB would be Chris Weinke, his CB's are Randall and William Gay.......anyways, Frazier has had the benefit of working with one of the best defenses in the league, but that doesn't mean to take away from his ability. I could see him getting a job soon.
Lewis is not a Head Coach. he shouldn't be a Head Coach, he is a Defensive Coordinator through and through. I'm surprised he's lasted this long in Cincy, and, more surprisingly, didn't get fired after last year's disaster.
Potential Replacement: Mike Zimmer
I guess that getting your coach from the inside is a nice idea. ZImmer has all the potential in the world to be a Head Coach in this league, and expectations are low in Cincy, so he won't have too much pressure on him when he starts.
Jauron has not led the Bills to the playoffs yet, and they haven't been to the playoffs in awhile. A new, frsh start is needed.
Potential Replacement: Jon Gruden
Gruden has expressed interest in wanting to work with the Bills' offensive weapons, and the Bills could use a guy like Chucky.
Mangini has been very inefficient, and not very committed. The Browns are 0-3, and looking like a train wreck. We're almost through the 1st quarter of the regular season, and there is still a QB contraversy. Mangini did not do very well in New York, so why would he do well with a worse team like Cleveland?
Potential Replacement: Rob Ryan
I know it seems crazy that a former Raiders assistant would be a head Coach, but Rex's twin brother is, believe it or not, a pretty good coach. and, like I've said, he's already in the system, which helps.
Turner really shouldn't be a Head Coach, he does not have the fire, and frankly, just isn't a good Head Coach. His Chargers are always getting lofty expectations, and, while they flop in the regular season, but, because they play int he AFC West, get lucky, and they always seem to meet the expectations in the playoffs. still, consistency is needed, because one day their lackluster regular seasons are going to catch up with them.
Potential Replacement: Brian Schottenheimer
the guy is doing a great job with the Jets, and is making Mark Sanchez look like an MVP, and would be a good fit for the Chargers. don't be surprised if he hires Marty and Kurt as well.
Cable is more of a thug than a coach, and the Raiders are owned by Al Davis, who tends ot switch coaches every 2 years. If Cable can't make this team at least respectable, he is going to get canned.
Potential Replacement: James Lofton
the guy has been in the Raiders system before, but I don't know if they would bring him back. Still, who wants to go to the mess that is 'Da RAIDERS!!??'
Coaches who aren't on the hot seat, but are starting to feel a little warmth:
Josh McDaniels (only for his Off-Season antics)
so, whaddya guys think? any candidates that I missed? Better choices? leave it in the comments section. Thanks for looking.
