The Top 10 NFL Coaches On The Hot Seat

Coaching in the NFL is a tedious task. It is hard to manage egos, game plan, and out coach the opposing team on a week to week basis. There is a high turnover rate for head coaches in the NFL. Some coaches are in lose lose situations and some coaches have the tools to lead their teams to the championship, but they may lack the coaching instincts that can build a Super Bowl team. When being fired as a NFL coach it does not mean that someone is a bad coach. For example Tony Dungy was fired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and then he later found success winning a Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts. Jon Gruden was let go by the Oakland Raiders and ironically he defeated the Raiders in the Super Bowl as the Head Coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coaches such as John Fox and Jack Del Rio are long tenured coaches that have enjoyed successful years for their respective teams. Things have changed and both of those teams are re-building, but they are not bottom of the barrel teams in the NFL. Coaches such as Jim Schwartz and and Eric Mangini are apart of the re-building process for their respective teams and they may be in a no win situation. The NFL is a " what have you done for me lately" kind of league. There is not much loyalty when it comes to head coaching in the NFL. There are several coaches that are on thin ice this season. The coaches that are mentioned could use a playoff birth that can extend their life as a NFL Head Coach.
