As a matter of fact, we know three trainers who definitely won't be returning and that is Bill O'Brien, Dan Quinn and Matt Patricia, who all got axed during this season. Three in-season firings was the highest number the NFL has seen as 2010 when four trainers got let go.

Since then, the Texans have hired a research firm to help them find their new coach. According to, the research firm has advocated Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer as somebody Houston should look at hiring. Additionally, it is believed that Houston will have its eye on Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. Although the Texans haven't formally interviewed either of those candidates, they have conducted at least 2 interviews and people came with former NFL head coaches Marvin Lewis and Jim Caldwell. The Texans have an open GM job and the belief is that they'll fill that job before hiring a new coach.

Since firing Dan Quinn in October following an 0-5 start, the Falcons were playing things close to the vest about who they might hire next. In the time since Quinn was let go, the team has just formally interviewed one candidate and that's interim coach Raheem Morris. Although the Falcons have to set up an interview with any of these three, they've set up two interviews for Monday. One of these interviews would be with 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh whereas another one will be with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. The Falcons are also in the market for a GM after firing Thomas Dimitroff.

The Lions gave the NFL that a Thanksgiving surprise once the team made a decision to fire Patricia two days following their 41-25 blowout loss to the Texans on Turkey Day. Since the shooting, the Lions have conducted just 1 interview and that arrived at the end of December with former Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. According to Fox Sports, the Lions will be interested in speaking to numerous candidates, such as interim coach Darrell Bevell, Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh.

Gase tried to save his job with two big wins over the Rams and Browns in the end of the year, but that wasn't sufficient to convince the Jets to keep him. Gase was fired on Sunday after just two seasons with the team where he travelled just 9-23. With Gase out, don't be surprised if the Jets seem to the school ranks. When the job came open two years back, they interviewed multiple college coaches prior to hiring Gase and it will not be surprising if they interview several more candidates in the faculty ranks this time around. The Jets may also go after Marvin Lewis due to his ties with present New York general manager Joe Douglas. Douglas also enjoys Ravens defensive coordinator Wink Martindale and it won't be surprising when he reached out to him.
