NFL Head Coach Vacancies

There are currently no NFL head coach vacancies.

The Los Angeles Chargers have hired Jim Harbaugh, the New England Patriots have hired Jerod Mayo, the Tennesee Titans have hired Brian Callahan, the Las Vegas Raiders have hired Antonio Pierce, the Carolina Panthers have hired Dave Canales, the Atlanta Falcons hired Raheem Morris, the Seattle Seahawks hired Mike Macdonald, and the Washington Commanders hired Dan Quinn.

Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons fired HC Arthur Smith on January 8.

Smith finished all three of his seasons with the Falcons 7-10, failing to make the playoffs in each year.

He earned the Falcons lead job after a successful two-year stint as the Titans offensive coordinator, but his Falcons offenses never got off the ground, finishing no better than 15th in total offense or total points during his tenure.

Falcons Head Coach Hire:

The Atlanta Falcons hired ex-Rams DC Raheem Morris as their head coach on January 25.

The Falcons met twice with Bill Belichick and appeared to be zeroing in on hiring the future Hall of Famer, but things seemed to fall apart after the second interview.

Morris advanced to the second round on interviews with both the Seahawks and Commanders, but he will end up back with a Falcons organization he was the interim HC for back in 2020.

Between then and now, Morris spent three seasons as the Rams defensive coordinator, winning a Super Bowl in 2021.

Morris spent three seasons as the Bucs head coach from 2009 to 2011. He compiled a 17-31 record with zero playoff appearances in Tampa, but his 10-6 squad in 2010 was unlucky to miss the postseason.

Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers fired HC Frank Reich on November 27.

Reich only lasted 11 games with the Panthers, going 1-10 before being fired in the middle of the season.

Panthers Head Coach Hire:

The Carolina Panthers hired ex-Bucs OC Dave Canales as their head coach on January 25.

It is a fast rise for Canales, who only served one year as offensive coordinator with the Bucs.

Before that, he topped out as a QBs coach in 13 seasons with the Seahawks.

Canales helped turn around Baker Mayfield’s career, and the Bucs’ offense had several great moments in 2023.

He too often leaned on the early-down run, however, and Tampa finished the season 20th in yards per play and 17th in points per drive.

This looks like something of a risky hire for the Panthers, but it might have been a necessary one given the state of the organization right now.

Las Vegas Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders fired HC Josh McDaniels on November 1.

McDaniels was 9-16 over a season and a half with the Raiders. He was also fired during his second season with the Broncos back in 2010.

McDaniels’ lifetime head coaching record now sits at 20-33.

Raiders Head Coach Hire:

The Las Vegas Raiders hired Antonio Pierce as their head coach on January 19.

Pierce had gotten some interviews for other lead jobs, but his return to the Raiders was always the most likely outcome, especially given how outspoken some of the team’s stars were about wanting Pierce back.

The Raiders went 5-4 after Pierce took over including a Christmas Day win over the Chiefs.

Los Angeles Chargers

The Los Angeles Chargers fired HC Brandon Staley on December 15.

Staley was 24-24 during his three seasons with the Chargers.

A stellar defensive coordinator with the Rams, Staley could not bring that success with him to LA’s other team.

The Chargers defense finished no better than 20th in total defense and points allowed during his tenure.

Chargers Head Coach Hire:

The Chargers hired ex-Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh as their next head coach on January 24.

Rumors about Harbaugh returning to the NFL have swirled for years, and he flirted heavily with the Vikings a couple of years ago.

Fresh off a National Championship, Harbaugh is finally ready to make the leap.

Harbaugh led the 49ers to a 44-19-1 record and a Super Bowl appearance in four seasons before backroom drama forced him out.

He was 89-25 in nine seasons at Michigan including this year’s National Championship victory.

New England Patriots

The New England Patriots and Bill Belichick agreed to part ways on January 11.

Given the amount of smoke about an eventual breakup during the season, this move was not a surprise, but it is still going to be odd seeing another person coach the Patriots.

Belichick has led the Patriots for 24 seasons, compiling a 266-121 regular season record, a 30-12 postseason record, and winning a record six Super Bowls in a record nine Super Bowl appearances.

Patriots Head Coach Hire:

The New England Patriots hired Jerod Mayo as their next head coach on January 12.

Reports emerged shortly after the Belichick announcement that there was a “firm contractual succession plan” in place for Mayo, so it is no surprise he was quickly named the new head coach.

Mayo spent his entire playing career with the Patriots, and he has been with the organization as a linebackers coach since 2019.

He inherits a lackluster roster that desperately needs a quarterback, work both he and the next GM will need to nail if they have hopes of competing in 2024.

Mayo becomes the youngest head coach in the league.

Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks moved on from HC Pete Carroll on January 10.

This was the first true bombshell.

Reports about the change simply said Carroll was out as head coach, so it is unclear if he resigned or was fired.

A statement from the team said Carroll would remain with the organization as an advisor.

Carroll coached for 14 seasons in Seattle, compiling a 137-89 record including a Super Bowl victory.

Seahawks Head Coach Hire:

The Seattle Seahawks hired ex-Ravens DC Mike Macdonald as their next head coach on January 31.

Seattle was heavily linked with Dan Quinn early in the process, which made sense given his ties to the organization, but they are going another way.

Macdonald has been one of the better defensive coordinators in the league over the last two seasons, leading a top-10 defensive unit both years despite injury concerns.

He looks like a great hire, but his choice of offensive coordinator will be vitally important.

Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans fired HC Mike Vrabel on January 9.

Vrabel was 54-45 during his six seasons in Tennessee, leading the Titans to three playoff appearances.

Considering some of the rosters he was given, Vrabel arguably overachieved during his time with the Titans.

Titans Head Coach Hire:

The Tennesse Titans hired ex-Bengals OC Brian Callahan as their next head coach on January 22. 

Callahan was the first candidate to get a second interview, so it is not a surprise he is the choice. He was also up for several other head jobs this coaching cycle.

The son of former Raiders HC Bill Callahan, Brian was the offensive coordinator in Cincinnati for five seasons before joining the Titans. He did not call plays in his role, with Bengals HC Zac Taylor handling that role.

Cincy’s offense has struggled at times during Callahan’s tenure, but it was a top-10 offense with Joe Burrow in 2021 and 2022.

Washington Commanders

The Washington commanders fired HC Ron Rivera on January 8.

Rivera was 26-40-1 during his four seasons with the Commanders.

Rivera has been an NFL head coach for 13 seasons. He has just three winning seasons over that stretch.

Commanders Head Coach Hire:

The Washington Commanders hired ex-Cowboys DC Dan Quinn as their next head coach on February 1.

Quinn followed up six years as the Falcons head coach with a successful three-year run as the defensive coordinator in Dallas.

That Falcons run included two playoff appearances and the infamous “28-3” Super Bowl debacle.

It would have been nice to see Washington take the bigger swing on Lions OC Ben Johnson, who reportedly priced himself out of the job, and it is fair to wonder if replacing Rivera with Quinn is a lateral move.

None of it will matter if the Commanders do not get the quarterback position right in the draft.

NFL GM Vacancies

There are currently no GM vacancies.

The Washington Commanders hired Adam Peters, the Los Angeles Chargers hired Tom Telesco, the Carolina Panthers hired Dan Morgan, and the Los Angeles Chargers hired Joe Hortiz.

The New England Patriots have given director of scouting Eliot Wolf control of the 53-man roster.

Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers fired GM Scott Fitterer on January 8.

The Panthers went 14-37 during Fitterer’s three seasons in charge.

While it is unclear who made the final call, Fitterer is taking the fall for the disastrous Bryce Young trade ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Panthers GM Hire:

The Carolina Panthers promoted assistant GM Dan Morgan to general manager on January 22. 

The No. 11 overall pick in the 2001 draft, Morgan played seven seasons in the NFL, all with the Panthers, and earned a Pro Bowl bid in 2004.

Morgan started as a scout with the Seahawks in 2010, worked his way up to director of pro personnel with both the Seahawks and Bills, and joined the Panthers as assistant GM in 2021.

This decision suggests Morgan was not a major part of the disastrous trade up for Bryce Young, a mess he will now be in charge of cleaning up.

Las Vegas Raiders

Raiders fired GM Dave Ziegler on November 1.

The Raiders were 14-20 during Ziegler’s two years at the helm.

Raiders GM Hire:

The Las Vegas Raiders hired ex-Chargers GM Tom Telesco as their general manager. 

There was some buzz interim GM Champ Kelly would be promoted to the full-time role, much like Antonio Pierce, but the Raiders decided to go with Telesco.

Telesco was fired in December after 11 seasons in charge of the Chargers.

While there were several missteps later in his tenure including the selection of Quentin Johnston in the first round last year, Telesco consistently built solid rosters with the Chargers and set them up with a long-term quarterback in Justin Herbert.

Quarterback will likely be his first area of concern with the Raiders.

Los Angeles Chargers

The Los Angeles Chargers fired GM Tom Telesco on December 15.

Telesco spent 11 seasons as general manager, leading the Chargers to an 84-95 record and three playoff appearances.

Chargers GM Hire:

The Los Angeles Chargers hired Ravens Director of Player Personnel Joe Hortiz as their next general manager on January 29.

Hortiz joined the Ravens as a personal assistant way back in 1998, working his way up to Director of College Scouting in 2009 and Director of Player Personnel in 2019.

A long-time co-worker of John Harbaugh, Hortiz is leaving to join John’s brother Jim Harbaugh in Los Angeles.

It will be interesting to see how power is divided with the Chargers after Harbaugh had a tumultuous relationship with then-GM Trent Baalke during his time in San Francisco.

However that works out, Hortiz and Harbaugh are starting from a good spot with a franchise quarterback already in place.

Washington Commanders

On January 8, Commanders owner Josh Harris announced the team would hire a “Head of Football Operations” in addition to a new head coach.

That position is expected to handle most of the duties of a traditional general manager.

Commanders GM Hire:

The Washington Commanders hired ex-49ers Assistant GM Adam Peters as their next general manager on January 12.

Peters had been with the 49ers for seven seasons, spending the last three as the Assistant GM.

During Peters’ tenure, the 49ers have consistently fielded one of the best rosters in the league.

His first order of business will be to decide what to do with the No. 2 overall pick, a selection that is almost certain to be a quarterback.

NFL Coordinator Vacancies

Atlanta Falcons

Falcons OC Hire:

The Atlanta Falcons hired ex-Rams QBs coach Zac Robinson as their next offensive coordinator on January 27.

A former quarterback, Robinson started his coaching career with the Rams in 2019.

He was promoted to pass game coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2022.

Only 37, Robinson is a somewhat risky hire, but one that comes with upside given his history and the success of other Sean McVay proteges.

The next order of business for Atlanta’s offense is finding a quarterback.

Falcons DC Hire:

The Atlanta Falcons hired Jimmy Lake as their next defensive coordinator on January 30.

Lake’s previous coordinating experience came in the college ranks at Washington, where he was eventually promoted to head coach and then fired after an incident on the sidelines with one of his players.

He spent 2023 as the assistant head coach with the Rams and will follow Raheem Morris to Atlanta.

Baltimore Ravens

Ravens DC Mike Macdonald left to be the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks on January 31.

Ravens DC Hire:

The Baltimore Ravens promoted LBs coach Zach Orr to defensive coordinator on February 1.

Given the success the defensive unit had under Mike Macdonald, promoting from within always made sense.

Orr played two years with the Ravens and has been on their coaching staff since 2022.

Only 31, Orr will be one of the youngest coordinators in the league.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills did not have a defensive coordinator after Leslie Frazier left the team following the 2022 season.

Head coach Sean McDermott was the acting DC in 2023.

Bills DC Hire:

The Bills promoted LBs coach Bobby Babich to defensive coordinator on January 30.

Babich was a candidate for the Dolphins’ open coordinator job before nabbing the promotion.

Buffalo’s defense suffered several major injuries in 2023 but remained a strong unit.

Carolina Panthers

While there will be a new offensive staff under new HC Dave Canales, DC Ejiro Evero and “most of his defensive staff” will be retained.

Panthers OC Hire:

The Carolina Panthers hired ex-Bucs WRs coach Brad Idzik as their next offensive coordinator on January 30.

Idzik is following Canales to the Panthers after following him from the Seahawks the year before.

Only 32, Idzik does not have a ton of experience, and Canales should have major say in how things go on offense.

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears fired OC Luke Getsy on January 10.

Chicago also let go QBs coach Andrew Janocko.

The offense improved during Getsy’s second season in charge, but the passing game and the development of Justin Fields remained big concerns.

HC Matt Eberflus will keep his job and is expected to remain the defensive playcaller, but the Bears plan to hire a new DC.

Bears OC Hire:

The Chicago Bears hired ex-Seahawks OC Shane Waldron as their offensive coordinator on January 22.

Waldron spent three seasons as the coordinator in Seattle, never finishing worse than 17th in points per game and helping to revive the career of Geno Smith.

It remains to be seen if he will be tasked with helping Justin Fields reach the next level or work with a rookie quarterback.

Bears DC Hire:

The Chicago Bears hired ex-Bills assistant HC Eric Washington as their next defensive coordinator on January 27.

Washington ran the Carolina defense for two seasons before joining the Bills in 2020.

His Panthers unit finished 31st in points allowed in 2019, the final year of Ron Rivera‘s tenure in Carolina.

Cincinnati Bengals

Ex-Bengals OC Brian Callahan took the head coach job with the Titans.

Bengals OC Hire:

The Cincinnati Bengals promoted QBs coach Dan Pitcher to offensive coordinator on January 24.

Pitcher has been with the Bengals since 2016, working as the quarterback coach for the last four seasons.

The internal promotion strongly suggests the Bengals plan to keep a similar offensive approach moving forward.

Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns fired OC Alex Van Pelt on January 17.

Browns OC Hire:

The Cleveland Browns hired ex-Bills OC Ken Dorsey as offensive coordinator on January 29. 

A scapegoat for Buffalo’s poor start to the season, Dorsey oversaw an offense that ranked second in EPA per play in 2022 and was third in the same metric when he was fired in 2023.

That said, he will not have Josh Allen running the show in Cleveland, and it remains to be seen if he will even be asked to call play.

The main concern of Cleveland’s entire offensive staff is getting Deshaun Watson to play up to his gargantuan contract.

Dallas Cowboys

Ex-Cowboys DC Dan Quinn accepted the head coach job with the Commanders on February 1.

Cowboys DC Hire:

The Dallas Cowboys hired ex-Vikings HC Mike Zimmer as their next defensive coordinator on February 8.

Zimmer got his NFL coaching start with the Cowboys in 1994 and was the defensive coordinator from 2000 to 2006.

Fired by the Vikings following the 2021 season, Zimmer spent the last two years working as a consultant for college programs.

Zimmer’s track record as a defensive coach is unimpeachable, but things fell apart on that side of the ball during his final two years in Minnesota.

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers fired DC Joe Barry on January 24.

The Packers defense was solid enough in the final few games, but this move still is not a surprise.

Barry’s defense finished 29th in yards per play allowed and 22nd in points per drive allowed this season.

Packers DC Hire:

The Green Bay Packers hired ex-Boston College HC Jeff Hafley as their next defensive coordinator on January 31.

Hafley spent time coaching in the NFL before leading Boston College for four seasons.

He left that head coaching gig for this job, which is not something you see every day.

Hafley ran an aggressive defense at BC featuring single-high coverages, something that will be a departure from what we saw under Barry.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars fired DC Mike Caldwell on January 8.

Along with Caldwell, the Jaguars fired most of the coaching staff on the defensive side of the ball.

Jaguars DC Hire:

The Jaguars hired ex-Falcons DC Ryan Nielsen as their next defensive coordinator on January 22.

Part of Arthur Smith’s ill-fated coaching staff, Nielsen only spent a season with the Falcons, but his defense was one of the bright spots for the team in 2023.

Atlanta finished 8th in yards per play allowed after finishing 25th in 2022.

Nielsen will be tasked with orchestrating a similar turnaround in Jacksonville.

Las Vegas Raiders

Raiders OC Hire:

The Las Vegas Raiders hired ex-Bears OC Luke Getsy as their next offensive coordinator on February 4.

The Raiders were reportedly in agreement with ex-Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury about taking over as offensive coordinator, but he backed out.

Getsy quickly emerged as the new favorite and signed with the team a couple of days later.

Getsy did not have a great run as the offensive coordinator over the last two seasons and did not seem willing to fully adapt to the strengths of Justin Fields.

It is not the most inspiring hire, but it will be interesting to see what Getsy does with a different quarterback.

Los Angeles Chargers

Chargers DC Hire:

The Los Angeles Chargers hired ex-Michigan DC Jesse Minter as their next defensive coordinator on January 29.

Minter follows Jim Harbaugh from Michigan, where he was the defensive coordinator for two seasons.

Chargers OC Hire:

The Los Angeles Chargers hired ex-Ravens OC Greg Roman as their next offensive coordinator on February 6.

Roman has a long history with the Harbaughs, serving as the OC for Jim in San Francisco and for John in Baltimore.

A strong running game has been a staple of Roman’s offenses throughout the years, but it will be interesting to see what he does with Justin Herbert, who does not have the same rushing ability as Colin Kaepernick or Lamar Jackson.

Los Angeles Rams

Ex-Rams DC Raheem Morris was hired as the Falcons’ next head coach on January 25.

Rams DC Hire:

The Los Angeles Rams promoted LBs coach Chris Shula to defensive coordinator on February 1.

The grandson of the great Don Shula, Chris has been with the Rams since 2017, most recently serving as the pass rush coordinator and linebackers coach.

The Rams defense was not outstanding in 2023, but it arguably overachieved given the youth and lack of talent on that side of the ball.

Los Angeles should work to bolster the defense this offseason.

Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins and DC Vic Fangio mutually agreed to part ways on January 24.

Dolphins DC Hire:

The Miami Dolphins hired ex-Ravens DL coach Anthony Weaver as their next defensive coordinator on February 4.

Weaver was a hot name in this year’s carousel, even getting head coaching interviews.

The Ravens defense was arguably the best in the league this season.

With the talent the Dolphins have on defense, assuming everyone can come back healthy, Weaver will have a good chance to make a great first impression.

New England Patriots

Patriots DC Hire:

The New England Patriots promoted DeMarcus Covington to defensive coordinator on January 27.

Covington has been with the Patriots since 2017, most recently coaching the defensive line.

Patriots OC Hire:

The New England Patriots hired ex-Browns OC Alex Van Pelt as their next offensive coordinator on February 1.

Van Pelt spent the last four seasons as the offensive coordinator in Cleveland.

He should have more autonomy to run the offense under new Patriots-HC Jerod Mayo than Browns HC Kevin Stefanski, who calls the plays in Cleveland.

New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints fired OC Pete Carmichael on January 16.

Saints OC Hire:

The New Orleans Saints are expected to hire 49ers passing game specialist Klint Kubiak as their next offensive coordinator.

Kubiak cannot officially sign until after the Super Bowl, but it looks like this deal is close to done.

A second-generation member of the Shanahan coaching tree, Kubiak spent one year as the coordinator in Minnesota, leading a middle-of-the-pack offense that was 18th in neutral pass rate.

Of course, that was under ex-Vikings HC Mike Zimmer, so it stands to reason Kubiak might be more adventurous moving forward.

Either way, getting a coach from the Shanahan tree is rarely a bad idea.

New York Giants

Giants DC Wink Martindale resigned on January 8.

Martindale led an aggressive defense in New York that had moments of success but ultimately struggled.

New York finished 2023 27th in yards allowed and 26h in points allowed.

Giants DC Candidates:

The New York Giants hired ex-Titans DC Shane Bowen as their next defensive coordinator on February 5. 

Bowen was let go by the Titans along with ex-HC Mike Vrabel after the season.

Bowen led an at-best middling defense during his three seasons with the Titans that was at times dreadful against the pass, but it is fair to question how much talent he had to work with in the secondary.

The Titans ranked 24th in blitz rate last season, something that will be a sharp departure from the gameplan under Martindale.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles fired DC Sean Desai on January 21 and OC Brian Johnson on January 23.

Matt Patricia, who took over play calling duties during the season to disastrous results, is expected to pursue other opportunities.

Seemingly in an effort to save his own job, Nick Sirianni has cleaned house after a disastrous end to the season.

He will need to show better hiring skills this time around for the Eagles to reach their goals in 2024.

Eagles DC Hire:

The Philadelphia Eagles hired ex-Dolphins DC Vic Fangio as their next defensive coordinator on January 27. 

Fangio and the Dolphins agreed to part ways and January 24, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter quickly reported Fangio was expected to land the same job with the Eagles, a team located closer to his family.

Fangio is one of the best defensive coordinators in the league and should help Philly’s defense rebound from a disastrous season.

Eagles OC Hire:

The Philadelphia Eagles hired ex-Chargers OC Kellen Moore as their next offensive coordinator.

In a story that somewhat mirrors Fangio at defensive coordinator, Moore is an experienced offensive coordinator who had success in Dallas before a tumultuous one-year stint with the Chargers.

After a disastrous end to the 2023 season, the Eagles were clearly looking for steady hands on both sides of the ball.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers fired OC Matt Canada on November 21.

Canada led one of the worst offenses in the league during his three years in charge, finishing no better than 21st in points scored.

Steelers OC Hire:

The Pittsburgh Steelers hired ex-Falcons HC Arthur Smith as their next offensive coordinator on January 30.

Smith’s stay on the unemployment line did not last long.

While his Falcons tenure was filled with offensive disappointment and the seeming misuse of resources, Smith got that job on the back of a couple strong seasons with Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry in Tennessee.

The Titans were fourth in EPA per play during his two years in charge and were fifth in points per drive.

There will be legitimate questions following his showing in Atlanta, but Smith at least has a track record of big success with a questionable quarterback, which seems likely to be the situation in Pittsburgh in 2024.

San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers fired DC Steve Wilks on February 14.

Despite the 49ers making it to overtime in the Super Bowl, Wilks is out after just one season running San Francisco’s defense.

Invited for several interviews during the head coaching searches, Wilks should find a new home shortly.

49ers DC Hire:

The San Francisco 49ers promoted Nick Sorensen to defensive coordinator on March 2.

The 49ers did bring in former Chargers HC and Rams DC Brandon Staley, but he is officially getting the assistant head coach tag.

It would stand to reason Staley is heavily involved on defense, but Sorensen will run the show.

Sorensen joined the 49ers as a defensive assistant in 2022. Prior to that, he spent eight seasons as a defensive coach in Seattle before a one-year stint as the special teams coordinator in Jacksonville.

Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks OC Hire:

The Seattle Seahawks hired ex-Washington OC Ryan Grubb as their next offensive coordinator on February 10.

Grubb has spent the majority of his coaching career in the college ranks, most recently leading the Fresno State offense from 2019 to 2021 and then the explosive Washington offense last season.

Much of his experience came under new Alabama coach and offensive guru Kalen DeBoer, who Grubb was expected to follow again, but Grubb was the primary play caller at Washington.

With a defensive-minded head coach, Grubb should have a lot of autonomy to build the offense he wants in Seattle.

Seahawks DC Hire:

The Seattle Seahawks hired ex-Cowboys DL coach Aden Durde as their next defensive coordinator on February 10.

A former NFL Europe player, Durde joined the coaching ranks with the Falcons in 2018 and followed ex-Seahawks DC Dan Quinn to Dallas in 2021.

That connection to Quinn and the Pete Carroll tree is interesting considering Mike Macdonald‘s defense in Baltimore played cover-3 at a bottom-10 rate the last two years.

It will be interesting to see how Seattle’s defense evolves under the new coaching staff.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Ex-Bucs OC Dave Canales was hired as the Panthers’ next head coach on January 25.

Buccaneers OC Hire:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hired ex-Kentucky OC Liam Coen as their next offensive coordinator on February 2.

Coen has bounced between the Rams and the University of Kentucky since 2020, spending one year (2022) as the offensive coordinator for the Rams and two years (2021, 2023) as the OC at Kentucky.

The stint with the Rams did not go great, thanks in large part to injuries, but Coen did get to work with Baker Mayfield, who is expected to get an extension this offseason.

Tennessee Titans

Titans OC Hire:

The Tennessee Titans hired ex-Jaguars passing game coordinator Nick Holz as their next offensive coordinator on February 2.

Holtz spent one year in Jacksonville after one season as the offensive coordinator at UNLV.

That is his only coordinating experience, but he was on the Raiders’ offensive staff from 2012 to 2021.

New HC Brian Callahan intends to call plays his first season.

Titans DC Hire:

The Tennessee Titans hired ex-Ravens DBs coach Dennard Wilson as their next defensive coordinator on January 31.

There was talk Wilson would take over the coordinating job in Baltimore, but he will join new Titans HC Brian Callahan in Tennessee.

Wilson began his career as a scout for the Bears before transitioning to coaching in 2012. He has spent time with the Rams, Jets, Eagles, and Ravens during his coaching run.

Washington Commanders

Commanders OC Hire:

The Washington Commanders hired ex-Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury as their next offensive coordinator on February 4.

Reports had Kingsbury headed to the Raiders, but he will run the offense in Washington instead.

Kingsbury had a disappointing run as Cardinals coach, surprisingly failing to establish a high-end passing attack.

Like with Kyler Murray in 2019, Kingsbury should once again have a highly-drafted quarterback to work with as he tries to help turn the Commanders around.

Kingsbury spent last season at USC with expected No. 1 overall pick Caleb Williams.

Commanders DC Hire:

The Washington Commanders hired ex-Cowboys passing game coordinator Joe Whitt as their next defensive coordinator on February 5.

Whitt following new HC Dan Quinn to Washington always seemed likely, and now it is official.

Despite Quinn’s success as a coordinator in Dallas, Whitt is expected to call the plays for the Commanders.
