Five NFL coaches have already lost their jobs, and it appears a whole lot more are going to be looking for new positions in the next few days.
Start with the state of Ohio, where Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis and Cleveland’s Eric Mangini are scheduled to meet with club executives Monday to decide their future.
Other coaches who could be in trouble include Miami’s Tony Sparano, Houston’s Gary Kubiak, Tennessee’s Jeff Fisher and Oakland’s Tom Cable.
Also, interim coaches Jason Garrett of Dallas and Leslie Frazier of Minnesota could soon get the job permanently.
John Fox coached his last game for the Carolina Panthers two days after it was announced he wouldn’t be back. Other coaches who lost their jobs before the end of the season were Wade Phillips, Brad Childress, Josh McDaniels and Mike Singletary.
