Firing an NFL coach in midseason - it's likely to happen in 2013
 
Interesting piece about firing head coaches in midseason that ran on nfl.com a year ago.

It's happened 22 times from 2000 through 2012. In only three years - 2002, '06 and '12 - were there no firings. And in two seasons, 2010 and '11, it happened seven times. So, obviously, these days owners are less reluctant to pull the plug:

Given all this, and that no coaches were fired during last season, the law of averages is that it will happen at least once this year. And probably in Houston, Atlanta or Minnesota. Winning two straight might save Schiano in Tampa, and being a first-year coach will get Bradley a pass in Jacksonville - even if he loses to the Texans next week.

Why not leave the door open for the new regime and give them a early start



But who is out there is the new regime even out there are do we waste 6 weeks on Scrub coaches

I wish the new regime was already rdy to give them a 6 week head start plus 2 months of playoffs


But if kubes goes I think Rick smith needs to go has well we need to hit the reset Button

Doubtful. Kubiak's seat wasn't hot going into the season. Despite the FO's frustration with him this year, they have too much respect for him to not give him a dignified exit. The only way he gets fired mid season is if the players give up on him, and that's also doubtful since they love him. The midseason stroke also reduces the odds.

If a head coach gets fired midseason teams usually promote an interim guy from the staff. The firing can also spark a little resurgence and almost 2 out of 5 interim guys keep the job.

If Kubiak gets fired before the end of the year Phillips takes over.

I don't want a 2014 with him leading us. Wait until January & get an entire new FO and coaching staff.

Does it really matter? Firing midseason vs after the season doesn't seem to have much impact. It's just easier to clean house after season is over.

I don't want Phillips either.

the only thing firing gary does now is send a message to the team and show potential head coaches, were available

but you have to stand strong by not keeping the interim coach no matter what happens

I'm probably in the minority, but I think suffering the stroke makes it easier to let Kubiak go.

McNair can say it was a "mutual decision" and "will allow Gary to focus on regaining his full health." Something like that.

I think that's how it'll happen, and after today's game will happen before the season ends. Like this week or next.

I don't want Wade to be the next coach either. I think if that happens there is a chance we keep the same offensive staff, and that does nothing to fix the problems on this team.

I also want Rick Smith gone too. I think hiring a real GM and letting him hire a head coach to implement his philosophy if the way we need to go moving forward.

If they pull the trigger now and avoid any dithering around then maybe they can find someone new as soon as the season is over.

Do not want Wade. He's failed as a head coach multiple times and there really isn't any reason to believe this team would be any better.

I think this is right on.

I think it is WAY out of character for McNair to fire midseason, but it would also not surprise me to wake up tomorrow and find out it happened.

This year, and Kubiak's game today were that bad.

Not sure how 16 teams having done it over a 13 year time period translates to likely.

Why do it?

Uh, did you see what Andre did during the game? The players are done with this guy.

I'm not advocating it, but what happened today was a bit bizarre. It no doubt further divided the team, atleast somewhat. I don't want this locker room completely melting down.

What did happen? I'm overseas and didn't get the chance to suffer through this debacle.

but if we clean house now it shows to the COaches out there now "Hey we are open for biz nis NOW HIRING "

it will make us the Number #1 spot for coaches to be at
