With the 2023 NFL regular season in the books, it’s time to look ahead. No, not to the playoffs, silly. To the NFL head coaching carousel!
Every year, a handful of the top jobs in the league become available due to various reasons, but mostly because their team has not lived up to the hype or deeply disappointed in the previous campaign.
As of January 9, there are currently six head coaching vacancies after the Tennessee Titans announced that they have parted ways with coach Mike Vrabel after six seasons with the franchise.
The number of available opportunities could grow, depending on what the New England Patriots decide to do with legendary coach Bill Belichick. That appears to be the only other job in question.
Below is a list of the other available head coaching jobs as of Jan. 9.
