The Jaguars have fired GM Gene Smith, with Mike Mularkey's fate likely to be decided by whoever the new GM is.

With you know who on the way, they might be doing both guys a favor.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

If anyone can take a loser and turn them into a winner, it's Gruden.    He already did it before with the Raiders.

RIP AL disagrees.

that teenager coaching the Raiders needs to go - they're one of the NFL's worst teams

Raider fans hate that coach and want him fired.   

I'd love to see Gruden go back and coach the Raiders again.   They'd win a Super Bowl fairly quickly with Gru.

Yes, perhaps then you could be a Raiders "fan".   ::)

Can we hope that Bill Sheridan will be fired tomorrow?

 I just don't see him and Jones getting along. I think Jones wants a coach he can have be a proxy of sorts for him - I don't think we see a strong personality like Gruden there after he's had Johnson and Parcells, both guys he classed with at times. Jones is a less creepy version of Al Davis imo.

I think you completely misjudge Jerry there. 

And Gruden to the 'Boys makes way too much sense.  they are set for a run and are a better fit for Jon than we ever were.

It would be great to see Gru coach the Cowboys.

Bucs could get our new WR coach and/or OC from this staff......


Ken Whisenhunt to meet with Arizona Cardinals Monday

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves will meet with team president Michael Bidwell on Monday morning to discuss the future of the franchise.
NFL head coach tracker
The Andy Reid era is over in Philadelphia. Which other coaches could lose their jobs in the days ahead? More ...

The jobs of both men hang in the balance. The Cardinals are expected by many in the league, and within the club, to seriously consider replacing Graves with Steve Keim, the team's vice president of player personnel. It's unclear if Graves would be fired in that scenario or moved into an executive role.

Keim also is said to be interested in looking at other GM openings, so the Cardinals could be motivated to move quickly.

Whisenhunt's future may depend in part on finances: If the Cardinals want to fire him, they must pay his hefty 2013 salary, believed to exceed $5 million.

The Cardinals started this season 4-0, then lost nine straight games and eventually finished 5-11.

NFL head coach tracker: What changes are coming?


    By Gregg Rosenthal
 
    Published: Dec. 30, 2012 at 11:09 p.m.
    Updated: Dec. 31, 2012 at 03:14 a.m.

A huge weekend of playoff-like games awaits Sunday. On Monday, 20 teams will start looking toward next season.

We'll all have the big moves covered on Around the League, starting on Black Monday, when many NFL head-coaching changes are expected. (Less talked about: Black Tuesday and Wednesday to follow).

This page will be a one-stop shop for links to all the latest news from the Around the League page. For now, let's take a look at what teams we'll be tracking next week for potential moves and whether or not they're likely to make a head-coaching change.

Arizona Cardinals

Ken Whisenhunt took the Cardinals to the Super Bowl not so long ago, but he has struggled to find anything resembling offensive consistency since. Whether it's personnel problems or Whisenhunt's coaching that is up for debate, he certainly has had a big say in the Cardinals' quarterback decisions.

Chances for a change: Stronger than you think. Defensive coordinator Ray Horton and former Cardinals assistant Todd Haley are two potential hires with whom the Bidwill family feels comfortable. It's also quite possible that general manager Rod Graves will lose his job, with Whisenhunt staying and someone receiving a promotion from within the personnel department.

Buffalo Bills

Chan Gailey has shown little progress in three years under GM Buddy Nix. The team changes its defensive plans every year, and Gailey's offense isn't as tough to prepare for as it used to be. Owner Ralph Wilson might not want to swallow the remaining money on Gailey's contract.

Chances for a change: Nothing would surprise us here, but the Buffalo News reported Sunday that a "full housecleaning" could be on the way. Nix seemingly would have a better chance of staying than Gailey.

Carolina Panthers

Ron Rivera has struggled to win close games during his tenure and isn't a natural in game management. A strong closing stretch could save his job, but the Panthers will hire a new GM after the season.

Chances of a change: Strong. A new GM almost always means a new head coach. Yahoo! Sports, however, hears some early buzz that Rivera could stay.

Chicago Bears

The Bears hired a new GM (Phil Emery) last offseason. Missing the playoffs after a 7-1 start conceivably could put coach Lovie Smith in jeopardy.

Chances of a change: Growing. NFL Network's Michael Lombardi said Sunday that sources around the NFL believe Smith "could be in jeopardy" whether or not the Bears make the playoffs.

Cleveland Browns

Pat Shurmur's team probably is better than its 5-10 record indicates. And it probably doesn't matter. Shurmur isn't an inspiring offensive mind. Like Rivera, Shurmur struggles with in-game situations.

Chances of a change: The Plain Dealer reported Saturday night that Shurmur and general manager Tom Heckert will lose their jobs Monday.

Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has intimated that he hasn't even thought about changing head coaches. Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer says coach Jason Garrett is safe, even if the team loses Sunday night and misses the playoffs.

Chances of a change: Minimal. If Glazer says Garrett is safe, he's safe.

Detroit Lions

Jim Schwartz and GM Martin Mayhew pulled off one of the best rebuilding efforts of all time after taking over the 0-16 Lions. And then the bottom fell out for a talented roster this year.

Chances of a change: Growing. Multiple outlets said earlier in the week that Schwartz was safe, but ESPN reported Sunday that Lions ownership is so disturbed with the team's culture, it could make a change. Schwartz is signed through 2015, but that might not matter.
Lombardi: Right way to fix a team
As Black Monday nears, Michael Lombardi says teams must avoid knee-jerk changes and stick to their philosophy. More ...

Jacksonville Jaguars

Mike Mularkey was hired just last year, but his boss (GM Gene Smith) is on the way out. Mularkey wasn't able to develop young quarterback Blaine Gabbert. All signs point to new owner Shad Khan making a change in the front office.

Chances of a change: Good. See Rivera. When a new decision-maker arrives, a new coach is likely to follow.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs were a popular playoff pick before the season (sorry). They are without question the worst team in the NFL. When that happens, change almost is automatic.

Chances of a change: All but certain. Even though GM Scott Pioli is expected to stay, NFL.com's Steve Wyche reported that coach Romeo Crennel is likely to be fired.

New York Jets

Rex Ryan has made a pre-emptive strike by reportedly telling people he'd rather be fired than stay without major changes to the offensive coaching staff and personnel. Ryan reportedly wants to stay, just under his own terms. He has more leverage than you think. The Jets announced Ryan will meet with the media at 4:45 p.m. ET Monday.

Chances of a change: Small. Look for a change at offensive coordinator and in the front office. Ryan might wind up with more power than ever.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Andy Reid era with the Philadelphia Eagles is over. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that Reid was informed by Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie during a meeting Friday that Sunday's game against the New York Giants would be his last as coach, according to two sources. The Eagles are expected to formally announce the firing Monday.

The Eagles strongly denied the report, saying Lurie and Reid will meet Monday.
Reid's 14-year tenure with the Eagles is over, but it didn't come as a shock -- Lurie said before the season that an 8-8 record would not be acceptable. The Eagles finished with four wins following their 42-7 loss to the Giants. You do the math.

Chances of a change: 100 percent.

San Diego Chargers

Chargers owner Dean Spanos surprisingly gave coach Norv Turner another season to turn things around after a dismal 2011. Things only got worse. Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego reported that GM A.J. Smith and Turner will be let go at season's end. Turner told reporters after Sunday's win over the Oakland Raiders he's "sure" he'll be fired.

Chances of a change: All but certain. This one should happen right away.

Tennessee Titans

Titans owner Bud Adams is mad about his team's performance and wants answers. Television ratings are down, and ticket sales are likely to follow. Coach Mike Munchak already changed offensive coordinators and could change the defense, if he is allowed to keep his job.

Chances of a change: The Tennessean believes that all early signs point toward Munchak staying.

Why are the bucs not on that list?    A change from Schiano wouldn't be a bad move.

Mularkey will be stuck with Coach Killer Tebow - if I were him, I'd resign immediately like he did in Buffalo. He can easily find a coordinator job in the league in no time.
