Grading every new NFL coaching hire

The NFL head coaches who've been hired in 2017 range from 30-year old Sean McVay to the tested Doug Marrone. A closer look at how each team fared in filling its vacancy.

Of the six open NFL coaching jobs, five have been claimed as of divisional weekend. We've yet to see any big-name coaches return or move (Jon Gruden and Mike Shanahan did not stage comebacks, and Sean Payton remained in New Orleans), but plenty of coordinators were given their shots, most notably the youngest head coach in NFL history, 30-year-old Sean McVay. Which teams made solid choices? Analyzing and handing out first-reaction grades for each move.
