2019 Offensive/Defensive Coordinator Tracker

While eight NFL teams are making a head coaching change 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 2018. 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.

    Great job by PFR in putting together these coaching change trackers. Will there be something similar for the high profile college prospects that may turn pro?

      Agreed…Good job guys, excellent work..Otherwise, it would be ridiculously hard to keep up with all these seemingly endless rumors, hirings, and firings…lol

      Now, it’s like a game of musical chairs, when the song ajd dajce is all said and done, it’ll be pretty interesting to see which team gets left without a seat…lol

        Back when I first started following the NFL a coach would have maybe 4 assistants on his staff. Now you have coaching staffs that are the size of United Nation contingents. One owner was actually thinking of having a “social awareness” coach for his team after the anthem madness that occurred a couple of years ago.
