Summer is a hopeful time of year for NFL head coaches. No one has to worry about the temperature of their chair or getting put on blast on the radio. Soon enough, the pressure will start to build on coaches. One coach's professional catastrophe is another's opportunity, whether it's a long-time assistant, a young up-and-comer or a hot name from the collegiate ranks. As seats start heating up, expect the following names to be bandied about as potential replacements for the next round of head coaches to be fired.
A half-dozen or so NFL teams are soon going to be looking for new head coaches, and most of them are going to want their candidates to be guys who know how to score points. There's a guy with the New England Patriots who knows how to do it. And before you laugh off the notion that any NFL team would trust Josh McDaniels enough to bring him in for an interview after what he did in Indianapolis 10 months ago , you need to understand the landscape. Baggage and all, McDaniels' talents as a coach and playcaller make him a very interesting candidate for teams that will find themselves in the head-coaching market in January. It's rough out there if you're looking for the next offensive coaching wunderkind. The list of guys with McDaniels' credentials is pretty short, and demand for those kinds of guys isn't fading.
Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley explains why he currently has no interest in the Browns' head-coaching job.

Got it? In total, 25 names were nominated on our ballots, with a certain coach from the college ranks topping five of them. Point system explained: First-place votes are worth 5 points, second-place worth 4, third-place worth 3 and so on. Full results of all coaches who received votes can be seen at the bottom of this story. Current job: Head coach, Oklahoma Sooners.

The best head coaching candidates for the 2019 NFL season
The Browns and Packers already made their positions clear regarding Hue Jackson and Mike McCarthy, respectively, and you could well imagine that the Cardinals, Dolphins, Jets, Bengals, and Broncos could also be in the hunt for new head coaches. One never knows until it happens. What that in mind, who are the best available candidates to replace those who will soon be out of work? This is a list of the current coaches I believe will be best in new situations, as opposed to the most talked-about or most available. So, the rumors are coming thick and fast, of course. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross recently said that he will not go after Harbaugh now, though he tried to pluck Harbaugh away from Stanford before the 49ers did.
This year's list of coaches in trouble is a little cloudier than usual because it features more men on the bubble than dead men walking, and there are two unusual factors that will have an outsized influence on how many teams make changes. The first is that the woods are full of former head coaches looking for second or third chances, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the crop of hot, young assistants in the pipeline looking for their first shot is unusually thin. The second issue is the NFL has a shortage of minority head coaches right now.

Mike McCarthy. Fired by the Packers in early December, McCarthy was in 13 seasons that included nine playoff appearances and a Super Bowl title after the campaign. The year-old will be in demand in the coming weeks; he's already passed on an opportunity to interview for the Cardinals' job and he'll reportedly interview with the Jets and Browns.
With Mike McCarthy already out in Green Bay and Hue Jackson a goner in Cleveland, that leaves the league with eight head coaching vacancies entering the calendar year.
