Some NFL head coaches have been fired and a few big-time jobs are now readily available.
And onto the NFL coaching carousel we go…
As it is every year, anywhere between five and eight head coaches get the ax sometime around Black Monday. A few franchises make the decision to move on from their head coach before the end of the season. Others needed to see entire season unfold before making a huge franchise-altering decision. While people getting fired stinks, opportunities exist for those who are prepared.
Here are the all the NFL head-coaching vacancies ranked from least desirable to the most coveted.
At the time of publication, the head-coaching vacancies are the following: The Las Vegas Raiders, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Denver Broncos.

Trevor Lawrence is great, but the Jacksonville Jaguars were literally a clown show
In the craziest game the NFL has seen since 28-3, the toothless Jacksonville Jaguars put on a clown show vs. the Indianapolis Colts. As it turns out, all of Duval got the last laugh. Jacksonville may have improved to 3-14 on the year by beating a division rival for the seventh time in a row at home, but this team stinks. They are now about to hire their third head coach in as many seasons.
This is all about cleaning up the mess Urban Meyer created. Owner Shahid Khan being committed to Trent Baalke as the team’s general manager could prevent the best candidates from going to North Florida. Unfortunately, this organization is scraping along at rock bottom, but the right head coach can become a legend if he turns this thing around with Trevor Lawrence as his quarterback.
Even though it is still one of 32 jobs, Jacksonville is by far and away the worst opening in this cycle.
