More Coaching Moves Coming?
There were 10 head coaching changes made league-wide after last season. People around the NFL expect far fewer switches this offseason but there still could be a few more moves to come even after today's dismissals of Jim Mora in Atlanta and Dennis Green in Arizona.
The Oakland Raiders have not said whether they will retain Art Shell and the Cleveland Browns' Romeo Crennel and perhaps the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Jon Gruden could be in jeopardy of being fired. The New York Giants reached the NFC playoff with a record of 8-8 but a first-round loss in Philadelphia on Sunday might put Coach Tom Coughlin back in danger of being dismissed.
The Pittsburgh Steelers seem to expect their coach, Bill Cowher, to resign with a season remaining on his contract. The Dallas Cowboys are in the playoffs but their disappointing finish to the regular season has some in the league wondering if Bill Parcells will walk away from coaching again, and there have been persistent reports that Miami Dolphins Coach Nick Saban might consider a lucrative contract offer from the University of Alabama.
