The coaching carousel is once again spinning round and round. There are currently 7 open head coaching jobs around the league. Who each NFL team should hire and who will they hire are two different questions. Only one job has already been filled when the Patriots promoted Jarod Mayo from their defensive staff. There could still be  more jobs that open up. Pittsburgh fans know that Mike Tomlin will be back with the team for the 2024 season. The Cowboys have done the same with Mike McCarthy in a move that is not well received. That leaves Philadelphia as the only job that could still open up. And there are reports that Nick Siriani will be back with the Eagles for next season. So who should each NFL team should hire to be their next head coach? I’ll tackle that below.

The seven jobs that remain open are the three jobs that opened in the middle of the season; Chargers, Raiders, and Panthers. The Titans, Seahawks, Falcons, and Commanders still remain open. There have been some reports of teams meeting with candidates. We know the Falcons have met with Bill Belichick and Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh. It seems like Arthur Smith is going big game hunting after hiring coordinators the last few times the job was open. Other jobs like the Titans have been a little bit quieter on the leaked news front. Although there have still been some news coming out of Nashville. So let’s get into it. Here are who each NFL team should hire to be their next head coach.

  • Atlanta Falcons

    This seems to be the most likely landing spot for one of the greatest coaches in NFL history. For years I’ve thought GM Bill Belichick was handcuffing head coach Bill Belichick. Atlanta’s roster is good to really good. The quarterback is the one reason for hesitation as Bill hasn’t developed one since Brady.

  • Carolina Panthers

    The Panthers have one priority moving forward; finding out if Bryce Young can be a franchise pillar. Brian Callahan has shown that he can call an offense that Jake Browning can thrive in. I think this is the worst job in the NFL because of the over barring owner. But it’s still 1 of 32 jobs in the NFL.

  • Las Vegas Raiders

    We’ve seen interim head coaches get the full time gig and it end in disaster. Look at the Browns under Freddie Kitchens. But this roster loves Antonio Pierce, and for the first time in a very long time the Raiders seemed to have an identity in the second half of this season. It was an “us against the world” mentality. I also fear what Max Crosby and Devonte Adams will do if AP doesn’t get the job.

  • Los Angeles Chargers

    This time is now for the Chargers to maximize Justin Herbert’s talent. Harbaugh has shown he can build a championship roster in the NFL when he was with San Francisco. This move would also create a real buzz around the Chargers in the LA market. Something the team hasn’t been able to do yet.

  • Seattle Seahawks

    I ask the question every year, but how has Eric Bieniemy not been hired as a head coach yet? Washington’s offense took a huge leap forward this season in Eric’s first season there. Seattle has had a defensive identity for the last decade under Pete Carroll. Time to take this roster that has a ton of talent on offense and maximize it.

  • Tennessee Titans

    For my money, Ben Johnson has been the best OC in the NFL over the last 2 seasons. He has helped turn around Jared Goff’s career and taken the Lions offense to the top of the league. Will Levis looks like a quarterback with all the talent in the world. Bring in a guy like Ben Johnson and the Titans will have a great chance to unlock all that talent.

  • Washington Commanders

    Vrabel is a winner. His Titans teams always played hard for him. Something the Commanders didn’t do consistently last year. The knock of Vrabel is that his offenses looked like they were stuck in the early 2000’s. Bring in the right OC for that side of the ball and let Vrabel instill the culture and oversee the team.
