Best NFL Head Coaching Candidates of 2019

Almost 10 teams have already fired their head coach, so here's some candidates who could possibly fill some of those vacancies.
The Top Ten
1 Mike McCarthy Michael John McCarthy is an American football coach who is the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. He previously coached the Green Bay Packers from 2006-2018. He led the Packers to a win in Super Bowl XLV against his hometown team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Outdated play calls with conservative measures plus staying on the Packers for a bit too long it was time. He could find success with another team.

After being fired by this Packers, people have already began saying that he will fill some vacancies. Some rumours have been to the Jets and Dolphins

For anyone that hires McCarthy, I wish them luck. They'll be dealing with stale and conservative playcalling for a whole season.

Sure things haven't worked out in Green Bay for the past few years but he's still a respectable coach. He would be the perfect guy for a team who needs some better coaching (NY Jets,Dolphins, Browns? )

2 Bruce Arians

He should come outta the commentators booth and coach again and his better than a lot these other guys from offensive mastermind who developed Andrew Luck, and eventually getting the Cardinals he did a very good job with what he could do.

He would not be a bad candidate. I mean just look at what he did with the Cardinals a few years ago. I still think he has some coaching life left in him. Unlike a certain other guy who made a return to the sideline from the booth to coach the Raiders

Apparently he's going to Tampa Bay. Should be interesting to see what he can do there.

He said that he would only come back to coach certain teams, such as the Browns

3 Jim Harbaugh

Yes, some have said he may be returning to the NFL after going back to college football. He has been successful as a head coach before, and even made it to the Superbowl. I personally think that he would prefer to stay in college football and won't move back to the NFL

Well that might be best to blow up the whole coaching staff honestly. Also here's a pattern that indicates this happens... 4 years with Stanford, 4 years with 49ers, and finally 4 years with Michigan.

I don't know about this one he's kinda struggled in big games with Michigan. And he can't beat Ohio State if his life depended on it.

4 Vic Fangio

The great defensive coordinator of the Bears, who has been in the NFL for over 30 years. He is rumoured to go to the Broncos or Eagles. Matt Nagy says there's a plan in place if he's hired.

A pretty good defensive coordinator, imagine they lose him it would show that times are changing.

5 Josh McDaniels

Well at least if he wants any head coaching position it's an elite quarterback in Rodgers.

McDaniels, please save the Packers.

It has been said that the only head Coaching job he will take is in Green Bay

6 Adam Gase

Yet another coach who has been fired after yet another mediocre season.

Should go back to being an offensive Coordinator more than anything.

He's a better coordinator than coach, that's for sure.

7 Kris Richard
8 Brian Flores
9 Zac Taylor

Currently the Rams quarterback coach, some teams may interview him hoping he can bring some of Sean McVay's offense with him.

10 Chuck Pagano

I don't like chuck he not the guy. he's not a great head coach but if the broncos can bring him he'll be a upgrade from Vance Joseph

Yes another former coach, he has drawn interest from the Packers and the Broncos

The Contenders
11 Lincoln Riley

Although he's not likely to leave Oklahoma to go to the NFL, he would be a prime target of many teams.

Now unless somehow Cleveland does interest him in a way this might not happen.

He's not going anywhere anytime soon. He just signed a contract extension

12 Eric Bieniemy
13 Marvin Lewis
14 Hue Jackson

So finally Marvin Lewis is gone, but than wait your gonna hire a guy who took his team with 4 wins with his time in Cleveland. Is the ownership really this bad in Cincinnati?

Cincinnati would be completely stupid to hire Hue. Well, expect since nobody wants the Cincinnati job, I guess they'll have to settle for Hue. Good luck with that.

Cincy would be stupid to hire him. Did they not see how Cleveland did with him? I'd almost go back to Marvin Lewis over Hue Jackson

He has been personally endorsed by Marvin Lewis to replace him in Cincinnati

15 John DeFilippo

Considering he got fired three quarters through the season, he's probably not going to get any offers for coaching.

He should go crawl back to Philly it hurts that bad how inconsistent Minnesota was all season.

The current Vikings offensive coordinator, who coached under Frank Reich and Doug Peterson

16 Jim Caldwell

Former Lions coach who has reportedly drawn interest from the Packers, Browns, and Jets.

17 Pete Carmichael

Has made a dynamic Saints offense in his 12 years with the team, but no previous head coaching experience.
