SB Nation 2016 NFL Playoff Guide

Being an NFL head coach means having about as little job security as possible and the coaching carousel of the 2016 offseason is already in full swing. During the 2015 offseason, seven NFL teams landed new head coaches and it didn't instantly change the fortunes for many teams.

Todd Bowles had the most success turning around a franchise, taking the New York Jets from a 4-12 season in 2014 to a top contender during the 2015 season. Gary Kubiak managed to keep the Denver Broncos among the top AFC teams and Jack Del Rio found success early with the Oakland Raiders, even if the team wasn't able to challenge for a postseason berth.

New head coaches didn't fix much for the San Francisco 49ers or Buffalo Bills, though.

During the 2015 season, three coaches didn't make it through the year, with the Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans parting ways with Joe Philbin, Chip Kelly and Ken Whisenhunt, respectively. The hope for each, and for all the teams firing coaches on "Black Monday" is that a new man in charge can replicate the success of Bowles and take them from disappointments into contenders sooner rather than later.
