NFL Hot Seat: Which coaches are most at risk?
The reeling, underachieving Los Angeles Rams fired coach Jeff Fisher last week, making Fisher the first of the league's 32 coaches to be shown the door this season. Jacksonville followed suit Sunday, relieving Gus Bradley of his duties after the Jaguars blew a 13-point lead and lost in Houston. Odds are, those won't be the last coaches shown the door. With “Black Monday” a little less than two weeks away, what does the future hold for the remaining 30 NFL head coaches? The following are almost certainly safe, for now: Bill Belichick, Patriots; Adam Gase, Dolphins; Mike Mularkey, Titans; Jack Del Rio, Raiders; Andy Reid, Chiefs; Gary Kubiak, Broncos; Ben McAdoo, Giants; Ron Rivera, Panthers; Mike Zimmer, Vikings; Dan Quinn, Falcons; Dirk Koetter, Bucs; Pete Carroll, Seahawks; Bruce Arians, Cardinals; Jason Garrett, Cowboys. The rest could feel at least a little heat, even the successful ones. We break it down, starting with the least likely and moving toward the most likely to be let go. —CHRIS BURKE
