NFL Head Coaching Hires Guide for 2006-2021

More research on this to come later, but I wanted to share a graphic I’ve made that has every head coaching hire in the NFL dating back to the 2006 season. Not included are in-season interim coach jobs such as Raheem Morris taking over for the fired Dan Quinn with the 2020 Falcons.

But one thing you can see, teams really need to stop doing the in-house promotion thing and hire a new coach from somewhere else. Freddie Kitchens (2019 Browns) was the last one and we know how well that went. He is also the most recent head coach to go one-and-done.
