I've seen articles indicating 10 or more coaches may get canned. Nice article on Fox Sports on likely candidates.

Edit: So not to forget the GM's as well

Schefter tweeted that Andy Reid, Norv Turner, Pat Schurmer and Romeo are all out. I wonder if Rex comes back? Can't wait to see what team gets Norv as OC...we're likely looking at an improvement there next year, a la Wade Phillips elevating the Texans' defense the last couple years.

Tannenbaum out in NY, in addition to Smith being out in JAX.

I'm surprised that Mularkey didn't go in the same announcement - is JAX really thinking about keeping him? Is KHAN going to import Tebow (as we all expect) and give Mularkey another year with a new GM (i.e. a guy NOT responsible for wasting several top 10 picks over the past few years)?

JAX is probably the least talented team in the NFL - whoever gets that job is really hurting. Bringing in Tebow will put asses in the seats but it won't result in very many wins because the team is not very good.

Per Schefter, the HC's fate will turn on who JAX brings in as GM.

Wonder whether there will be any genuine surprises today.

Preumably, the owner has final say, so any GM interviewed will have to be comfortable with keeping Rex on.

Here is the statement from Johnson:


Our 2012 season was a disappointment to all of us. My goal every year as owner is to build a team that wins consistently. This year, we failed to achieve that goal.

This morning, I informed Mike Tannenbaum that he will not return for the 2013 season. Mike devoted 15 years of service to the Jets, and I want to thank him for his hard work and dedication. Although he helped guide us to two consecutive AFC Championship Games, we are not where we want to be, and a new General Manager will be critical to getting this team back on the right track.

Starting immediately, we will conduct a search for a new General Manager. I've consulted with a number of football executives and I have also engaged the services of Korn/Ferry International, the same search firm that conducted the NFL Commissioner search in 2006. Our process with Korn/Ferry will be led by Jed Hughes, who heads their sports practice and who previously led the General Manager search for the Seattle Seahawks, among others. When we have updates on this process, we will provide them to our fans and the media.

Rex Ryan will remain the Head Coach of our football team. I believe that he has the passion, the talent, and the drive to successfully lead our team.

Like all Jets fans, I am disappointed with this year’s results. However, I am confident that this change will best position our team for greater success going forward.


I'd imagine the future GM will have to be on board with Rex.

That's a surprise. There's been stability and a lot of good-but-not-great teams under Lovie. As a talented team trying to take the next step, look for them to be a player for any of the bigger names out there. They're not going to want to give a first-timer shot this time around, they're going to want someone with a track record of winning.

Won't be today, but if either Kubiak or Mike Smith goes one-and-done in the playoffs I think either could get the ax. Kubiak especially, after having the number 1 seed all but locked up four weeks ago, and ending up not even having a bye.

Who could the Falcons or Texans get that are better? They seem to be very well coached teams. Houston's problems seem to be Schaub is a serviceable QB and not elite and their defense has had injuries at LB and DB.
I think Atlanta is very solid, they should not be one and done this year.

Maybe it should be another thread, but who replaces all these guys?

Chip Kelly, Nick Saban, Kirk Ferentz (reportedly tied to the Chiefs, could also end up with the Browns if Lombardi goes there). Seems likely that Reid ends up with a job somewhere. Who else?

So Bill O'Brien is rumored to be a candidate to replace Reid in Philly. What do Pats fans think of his prospects as an NFL head coach?

Dan, based on his work in NE, it's hard to know. On the one hand, he seemed to have the respect of Brady and the other offensive players (save perhaps Randy Moss). And he was sometimes fiery on the sidelines, for whatever that's worth. On the other hand, his play calling was often uninspired and left me and others missing Weis and McDaniels. And it's hard to separate Belichick from his coordinators given how little room the coordinators have with the media and how dominant BB appears with respect to how the team is run overall.
