Follow the latest NFL’s coaching, GM changes and rumors here

Follow us as we track all the coaching carousel news here.

With the end of the NFL regular season comes changes, as teams let go of head coaches and general managers in search of a fresh start. Black Monday is typically when the coaching carousel starts, since it’s the day that most teams fire underachieving coaches.

It can start earlier, such as when Ben McAdoo got released in December, but for the most part teams don’t start making moves until the regular season is done.

As coaching rumors and news heats up, we’ll be tracking all the action here. Follow us from the first job opening up, to the last one getting filled.
