2017 Offensive/Defensive Coordinator Tracker

While at least six NFL teams are making head coaching changes this offseason, the number of clubs replacing offensive and/or defensive coordinators figures to be much higher than that. In addition to all those teams hiring new head coaches, who may want to bring in their own assistants, several clubs also figure to make changes on one side of the ball or the other after getting disappointing results in 2016. And, of course, the teams whose coordinators landed head coaching jobs will need to replace them.

With reports circulating on potential candidates, interview requests, and actual meetings, we’ll use the space below to keep tabs on all the latest updates on teams hiring new offensive and/or defensive coordinators. This post, which will be updated daily, can be found under the “PFR Features” menu on the right-hand side of the site.

    So glad the Browns jumped on Gregg Williams right away. Now maybe we’ll have a D with attitude.

    Williams will pay them to take other players out that should help them play better.

    • Surprisingly a Bucks Fan

      most of the talk was locker room talk in the videos they released

    Guys Bradley needs to come back to Seattle Richard can go to Buffalo or anyplace else and take Bevell with him.

  4. Capitol Punishment

    Let’s go Skins! McCloughan will get Gus Bradley to sign on as DC, and Josh Norman’s influence can get Steve Wilks in as DB coach…HTTR!
