Here's a quick checklist of who's already in and who's already out:
Saved from the Fire
Tom Coughlin, New York Giants
Coughlin's Giants have once again faded down the stretch, with Eli Manning leading the way.
Big changes are likely ahead for Coughlin's staff as the team continues to look for answers. For now, Coughlin is still the man in charge. He won't have much leash at all from here on out, however.
Gary Kubiak, Houston Texans
Surprisingly, the Texans retained Kubiak after a backslide to 6-10 in 2010.
He'll have to make sweeping changes to his staff, particularly on defense. He also will have to win next season. Another non-playoff year and the Texans will likely move in a new direction.
Jack Del Rio, Jacksonville Jaguars
Del Rio was probably much safer than the first two men, but his status was largely uncertain after the Jaguars failed once again to make it to the post-season.
Del Rio's teams tend to fade down the stretch and this year reflected that. He'll have to win next year or face elimination.
Eric Mangini, Cleveland Browns
Consecutive 5-11 seasons spelled the end for Mangini, who coached under Mike Holmgren's nose.
Where Cleveland goes next is anyone's guess, but Mangini should land on his feet as a defensive coordinator somewhere before returning to head coaching in a few years.
John Fox, Carolina Panthers
Fox may end up in Cleveland, but after the sad sack effort he put out this season he should come with warning labels.
He's supposed to be a good motivator and defensive coach, but his inability to build a long-term success on offense in Carolina has to be a concern.
Mike Singletary, San Francisco 49ers
Not able to build off of his "I want winners!" speech early in his tenure, Singletary was booted after changing quarterbacks continuously in 2010 and showing a tendency towards sideline outbursts and cluelessness.
He should land on his feet somewhere as an assistant.
Wade Phillips, Dallas Cowboys
Phillips has been here before and will be fixing somebody's defense next season. He got longer than most thought to turn Dallas around, but in the end he lost out to Jerry Jones' desire to bring another championship to Dallas.
Phillips' head coaching days are likely over, but he's an elite coordinator hire.
Brad Childress, Minnesota Vikings
This was ugly from the start.
Childress doesn't relate well with players, isn't a people person and couldn't develop a quarterback. He had the reputation of an offensive guru, but his teams always leaned heavily on defense.
He may get an assistant gig somewhere, but he is damaged goods for now.
Josh McDaniels, Denver Broncos
Is he the next Bill Belichick? Time will tell.
McDaniels has a lot of growing up to do. He needs to be less confrontational and more motivational next time. He'll go back to coordinating offenses for awhile and then get another shot when he's got more experience.
He's got talent, its just too raw for now.
