The head coach and general manager hiring cycle is in full swing with Super Bowl LVI now set. After landing their new general manager in Dave Ziegler out of New England, the Las Vegas Raiders grabbed another former member of the Patriots, hiring offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to be their new head coach. Thursday night, the Jaguars announced Doug Pederson as their next coach.
Earlier this week, the New York Giants found their new coach from Buffalo in Brian Daboll. The Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears were the first teams to strike, with the Broncos hiring former Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and the Bears locking in on former Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus. That leaves the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings as the teams left searching for head coaches. The latest reports are that Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and the Vikings are talking about a return to the NFL and former Dolphins coach Brian Flores will meet with the Saints to discuss their vacancy.
