2021 NFL Coaching Carousel Tracker: Upgrades, latest rumors
With the conclusion of the NFL season upon us, that usually means the league's yearly coaching purge is all about to kick into top gear. When the season kicked off in September, there were 32 head coaches roaming the sidelines round the NFL, but not every one of those men will be returning in 2021. As a matter of fact, we already know three coaches who definitely won't be returning and that is Bill O'Brien, Dan Quinn and Matt Patricia, who all got axed during the season. Three in-season firings has been the highest amount the NFL has seen since 2010 when four coaches got let go.
Heading into the 2021 offseason, there could be as many as six teams trying to find a new trainer and that number could jump even higher if we view any shock moves. We'll be monitoring all the latest information as teams start their hunt for the right coach. To keep you up to date on the latest firings, rumors and hirings, be sure that you keep tabs on the training tracker beneath.
O'Brien was the first coach to be fired this season and that move came all the way back in October when the Texans chose to give him a pink slip after an 0-4 start that included losses to the Chiefs, Steelers and Ravens. Ever since that time, the Texans have hired a search firm to help them find their new coach. According to ESPN.com, the research firm has advocated Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer as someone Houston should look at hiring.
Additionally, it is believed that Houston will have its attention on Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. Though the Texans haven't formally interviewed either of those candidates, they've conducted at least 2 interviews and people came with former NFL head coaches Marvin Lewis and Jim Caldwell. The Texans have an open GM job and the belief is they'll fill that role before selecting a new coach.
Since shooting Dan Quinn in October following an 0-5 start, the Falcons have been playing things near the vest about who they could hire next. In the time because Quinn was let go, the group has only officially interviewed one candidate and that's interim coach Raheem Morris. Though the Falcons have yet to put up a meeting with any of those three, they've set up two interviews for Monday. One of these interviews will be with 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh whereas another one will probably be with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. The Falcons are also in the market for a GM after shooting Thomas Dimitroff.
