Coaches On the Hot Seat in the NFL This Year


Another year of the NFL is on the horizon and it is another year of talking about which NFL coaches will be on the hot seat heading into the 2023 NFL season. There are several new coaches at several new places this season.


Some coaches are in a win-now mode to try and make the playoffs or they will be fired. Which NFL coaches will be on the hot seat heading into the 2023 NFL season?


Brandon Staley, Los Angeles Chargers


This is it for Brandon Staley heading into his third season with the ball club. Los Angeles was one of the playoffs teams in the NFL last year and is lucky to be in his third season with them. The Chargers blew a 27-0 lead to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Wild Card Round on the round.


There is more than enough talent for this football team to win at least one or more playoff games. Quarterback Justin Herbert is a stud. Offensive coordinator Kellen Moore may save Staley's job in a tough AFC West in the NFL even though they face Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid, and the Kansas City Chiefs twice a year.


Robert Saleh, New York Jets


Robert Saleh is also entering his third season with the New York Jets. They showed much progress from year one to year two. Now is the time for them in year three to make it to the playoffs. Some argued they would have been a playoff team last year if they had any other quarterback than Zach Wilson.


This is why they traded for quarterback Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers. New York has the defense and offensive weapons to win at least 10 or more games in a tough AFC. Trying to dethrone the Buffalo Bills will be difficult with Josh Allen and Sean McDermott, but if they miss, Saleh is the odd man out here in the NFL coaching carousel.


Ron Rivera, Washington Commanders


Ron Rivera has been with the Washington Commanders for a few years. He won the NFC East title in 2020 at a 7-9 record. Rivera hasn't been back to the playoffs since with them. The NFC East is a lot better and they are banking on quarterback Sam Howell and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemiy to get them back there in a very tough NFC East division.


Bieniemiy won two Super Bowls with Andy Reid as the offensive coordinator and decided to make a very interesting lateral move. If this doesn't save Ron Rivera, nothing will.


Other coaches to watch for: Mike McCarthy Dallas Cowboys and Kevin Stefanski Cleveland Browns
