The first round of interviews for vacant NFL head coaching jobs begin today. Eight teams have vacancies and some of the top candidates will be getting their first chances to impress prospective clubs.
Fired Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, will be interviewing with the Arizona Cardinals who need a quarterback specialist to work with Josh Rosen. Gase has also gotten interest from the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns who have young QBs of the future.
New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels will be the belle of the ball this interview season as he has been in recent years. He is expected to take an interview with the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday to revitalize the Packers and squeeze what’s left out of the last few years of Aaron Rodgers.
Former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is also expected to interview with the Jets and Browns.
Defensive minded coaches like Vic Fangio from the Chicago Bears is expected to interview with the Miami Dolphins on Monday and Denver Broncos later in the week.
However, Fangio at 60 years old has never held an NFL head coaching job and defense is not what the NFL of the Roger Goodell era is founded on.
In the copycat NFL look for teams to try to find the next Sean McVay, who is the hot flavor of the week offensive mind clear cut for a league that has pretty much outlawed playing defense.
