Opinion: The ideal head coaching candidate for each of the NFL's seven openings
Breaking down the best potential candidate (and a few alternatives) for the seven current head coach openings in the NFL.
The New York Giants’ firing of Joe Judge on Tuesday evening brought the NFL’s total head coaching vacancies to seven.
Thus far, the Raiders, Jaguars, Broncos, Bears, Dolphins, Vikings and Giants have openings.
Other openings to keep an eye on: Houston, where David Culley is coming off his first season. Though Culley had little to work with, rumors have swirled that the Texans could look to start over yet again. And there’s Seattle, where the Seahawks face an uncertain future both at head coach and quarterback. Some NFL insiders believe that if Russell Wilson does demand a trade this offseason, that Pete Carroll could wind up retiring rather than starting over with a new quarterback.
