Wade Phillips seems to have reserved a permanent spot on the hot seat.
Even when he was taking the Dallas Cowboys to the playoffs, there was talk about him getting fired.
This year is a little different, though. The team is 1-4 and has lost some games that, really, they should have won.
Lots and lots of penalties, special teams breakdowns and turnovers in key situations have doomed the team in the early part of the 2010 season. While it's the players who make these mistakes, those three categories are largely attributed to coaching.
Obviously, if Phillips turns the team around and gets it to the Super Bowl, there's no way he would be fired.
Short of that, though, what can he do to make sure he's still the coach of this team next year?
