With the 2020 NFL regular season over and the wild-card playoff games starting Saturday, all six of the head-coaching jobs that came open in the 2020 cycle remain unfilled. The Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, Los Angeles Chargers, Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets could hire their coaches soon.
After the Texans hired new general manager Nick Caserio earlier this week, there are six more open GM jobs; the Lions, Falcons, Jaguars, Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers and Washington Football Team are the teams looking for executives to run their front offices.
Things are changing quickly, but we wanted to run through everything we're hearing about all 12 of these openings, candidates who are -- and are not -- interested in specific jobs and more:
The latest on the Jaguars' two openings
There is strong two-way interest between the Jaguars and Urban Meyer, who interviewed for Jacksonville's head-coaching job Friday. It's not certain that it's a done deal yet, but the perception among other candidates for that job is that nothing will happen there until the Meyer situation gets figured out one way or the other.
Meyer, the former Ohio State, Florida, Utah and Bowling Green head coach who left the Buckeyes after the 2018 season, has been doing research into the procedural differences between the college game and the NFL and has been doing due diligence on potential assistant coaches in case he ends up getting the job.
