As always happens at the end of each NFL season, the coaching silly season begins as the head coaches and sometimes general managers of losing teams find themselves looking for a new job.
At the end of the 2016 NFL season some half a dozen coaching positions are open. In once instance, Gary Kubiak of the Denver Broncos, the head coach retired due to health reasons.
Head coach for the Los Angeles Rams Jeff Fisher, head coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars Gus Bradley, head coach for the Buffalo Bills Rex Ryan and twin brother Rob who was the defensive co-coordinator, head coach for the San Diego Chargers Mike McCoy, and head coach for the San Francisco 49ers Chip Kelly and general manager Trent Baalke have all been fired. Depending on what happens this weekend in the wild card playoff games, the list of fired coaches could increase.
And with that the coaching carousel begins as teams search for that one person they believe will take them to the playoffs next season
