OPENING HIT: The coaching changes are coming and possibly large numbers of them. It’s only a matter of if they happen during the season or not.
Jacksonville coach Jack Del Rio is gone. Maybe before the end of the season.
San Diego coach Norv Turner is gone, too. Probably at the end of the season.
I continue to hear from league officials that Philadelphia Eagles management don’t necessarily want to fire Andy Reid but they want him to make changes on his staff.
The Miami Dolphins situation has been set for some time. It’s not changing.
Tom Coughlin doesn’t deserve to go – no way – but if the Giants have another collapse he might get the axe.
And if the Colts go 0-16 – a distinct possibility – do they make a change?
There is going to be some coaching talent, albeit flawed, departing and some great coaching talent – Bill Cowher and Les Miles, among others – will be entering.
Coaches in, coaches out. It’s cruel and I hate it but that’s the NFL way.
Perhaps the biggest question of all is that every year there’s a surprise firing.
Who will it be this time?
