With another NFL offseason comes another year of several teams getting new head coaches and coordinators.
Who’s all been fired, hired or retired? Which teams have the same primary staff intact for 2018?
Here’s rounding up how every team is looking with its top three coaching positions.

NFL coaching tracker: Hirings, firings, updates
Offensive coordinator: Harold Goodwin
Defensive coordinator: James Bettcher
Bruce Arians retired from coaching at age 65 and is reportedly being coveted for jobs in television while the Cardinals look for his successor.
Coach: Dan Quinn
Offensive coordinator: Steve Sarkisian
Defensive coordinator: Marquand Manuel
It’s been a tough first year for Sark, but the Falcons are still in the divisional playoffs, so he’s likely safe. Manuel might need to wait another year to get his head-coaching interviews.
Coach: John Harbaugh
Offensive coordinator: Marty Mornhinweg
Defensive coordinator: Don “Wink” Martindale
After the retirement of defensive coordinator Dean Pees, the team decided to promote Martindale, the longtime linebackers coach. He spent one year as the Broncos’ defensive coordinator in 2010.
Coach: Sean McDermott
Offensive coordinator: Rick Dennison
Defensive coordinator: Leslie Frazier
This was the first-year staff that finally put the Bills back into the playoffs, so none of them are going anywhere. McDermott and Dennison, however, need to reboot at quarterback with Tyrod Taylor likely not being retained.
Coach: Ron Rivera
Offensive coordinator: Norv Turner
Defensive coordinator: Steve Wilks
Rivera’s first big move after signing a two-year contract extension through 2020 was dismissing offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey. Norv Turner reportedly will replace Shula. The Panthers also might need to replace Wilks, a hot head-coaching candidate.
Coach: Matt Nagy
Offensive coordinator: Mark Helfrich
Defensive coordinator: Vic Fangio
Nagy was named head coach to replace John Fox rather quickly after the team whose offensive he used to coordinate, the Chiefs, exited early from the playoffs. Chicago is doing its best to keep Fangio in place for 2018. Helfrich, the former Oregon head coach, was an immediate splashy hire, also good for Mitchell Trubisky.
Coach: Marvin Lewis
Offensive coordinator: Bill Lazor
Defensive coordinator: Teryl Austin
Lewis signed a two-year contract extension to stay for at least a 16th season. Lazor replaced Ken Zampese in September. Austin was a great get from the Lions after losing Paul Guenther to the Raiders.
DeCOURCY: Keeping Lewis means Bengals still broken
Coach: Hue Jackson
Offensive coordinator: Vacant
Defensive coordinator: Gregg Williams
Jackson served as both head coach and offensive coordinator in 2017, but he has decided to get some help at the latter position for Year 3. Zampese, with whom Jackson worked in Cincinnati, is among those in the mix.
BENDER: Sixteen fixes for the 0-16 Browns
Coach: Jason Garrett
Offensive coordinator: Scott Linehan
Defensive coordinator: Rod Marinelli
Jerry Jones once again vouched for Garrett after the Cowboys’ disappointing non-playoff season. The team has to replace special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia, who joined the Raiders’ staff in the same capacity. Dallas has a change at QB coach, too, with former backup Kellen Moore in line to replace Wade Wilson.
Coach: Vance Joseph
Offensive coordinator: Bill Musgrave
Defensive coordinator: Joe Woods
Joseph replacing Mike McCoy with Musgrave in the middle of the season was a good enough sacrifice to save his job after one rough rookie season. Consider Joseph on the hottest seat going into 2018 under John Elway.
Offensive coordinator: Jim Bob Cooter
Defensive coordinator: Vacant
Jim Caldwell’s seesaw success cost him his job after the Lions failed to make the playoffs again. Cooter could be promoted or retained, but the new head coach will have a challenge in trying to get someone as good and experienced as Austin for the defensive coordinator position.
Green Bay Packers
Coach: Mike McCarthy
Offensive coordinator: Edgar Bennett
Defensive coordinator: Mike Pettine
Green Bay fired Dom Capers but made a fine hire in Pettine, the former ace assistant to Rex Ryan. McCarthy also will be working with a new general manager, Brian Gutekunst, promoted to replace reassigned Ted Thompson. They were welcome changes after a non-playoff season.
IYER: Packers have clear blueprint to thrive defensively
Coach/offensive coordinator: Bill O’Brien
Defensive coordinator: Mike Vrabel
O’Brien stays while general manager Rick Smith stepped down from his role for a leave of absence with his wife battling breast cancer. Brian Gaine will take over for Smith. Vrabel, even with the team’s defensive struggles because of injury, would be a coup to keep, assuming he gets no head-coaching calls.
Offensive coordinator: Rob Chudzinski
Defensive coordinator: Ted Monachino
Chuck Pagano was fired as expected after the season. For now, the coordinators are in place, but that’s likely to change with whoever takes over. It hurts that the Colts’ top choice, Nagy, got the Bears job.
STEELE: Eight best candidates to replace Pagano
Coach: Doug Marrone
Offensive coordinator: Nathaniel Hackett
Defensive coordinator: Todd Wash
The Jaguars continue their playoff run one year removed from Gus Bradley. Wash deserves coordinator of the year honors for his work with that defense.
Kansas City Chiefs
Coach: Andy Reid
Offensive coordinator: Eric Bieniemy
Defensive coordinator: Bob Sutton
It’s been a rough January for Reid, beyond his team blowing a 21-3 lead in the wild-card loss to the Titans and being denied yet another playoff victory at Arrowhead Stadium. Nagy left promptly for the Bears, and then Brad Childress also retired from the offensive staff. Bieniemy was a good promotion from running backs coach given his work with Kareem Hunt.
Los Angeles Chargers
Coach: Anthony Lynn
Offensive coordinator: Ken Whisenhunt
Defensive coordinator: Gus Bradley
The Chargers knew some other teams were interested in both Whisenhunt and Bradley, so they made sure to retain them for Lynn.
Los Angeles Rams
Coach: Sean McVay
Offensive coordinator: Matt LaFleur
Defensive coordinator: Wade Phillips
McVay lost quarterbacks Greg Olson to Jon Gruen and the Raiders. LaFleur was thought to be a hot coaching name, but he has not gotten much buzz since the Rams were eliminated from the playoffs. Phillips isn’t retiring yet.
Coach: Adam Gase
Offensive coordinator: Dowell Loggains
Defensive coordinator: Matt Burke
Gase runs a complicated system with concepts from different offenses, so it was good for Miami to get better help from Loggains, who replaced him as offensive coordinator with the Bears. Loggains is a solid upgrade over Clyde Christensen.
Coach: Mike Zimmer
Offensive coordinator: Pat Shurmur
Defensive coordinator: George Edwards
Shurmur and Edwards are both strong head-coaching candidates, so Zimmer should be prepared to replace one of them once the Vikings’ playoff run is finished.
New England Patriots
Coach: Bill Belichick
Offensive coordinator: Josh McDaniels
Defensive coordinator: Matt Patricia
Is this the year when Belichick loses both McDaniels and Patricia? Even with another Super Bowl run, it’s looking a lot more probable that at least one will become a head coach elsewhere. Patricia seems ahead of McDaniels in that pursuit.
New Orleans Saints
Coach: Sean Payton
Offensive coordinator: Pete Carmichael
Defensive coordinator: Dennis Allen
The Saints march into the divisional playoffs with a strong season from their staff.
New York Giants
Offensive coordinator: Vacant
Defensive coordinator: Steve Spagnuolo
Ben McAdoo and Mike Sullivan will no longer be running the offense, that’s for sure. The latter moved on to become the Broncos’ quarterback coach. Spagnuolo, after being interviewed for the head-coaching position, has a chance to stay with the new hire.
New York Jets
Coach: Todd Bowles
Offensive coordinator: John Morton
Defensive coordinator: Kacy Rodgers
Morton was rumored to be heading to the Raiders with Gruden but will stay with Bowles, who had a good enough year to stick around in New York and build on getting the most out of his team.
Coach: Jon Gruden
Offensive coordinator: Greg Olson
Defensive coordinator: Paul Guenther
Gruden got his big deal to return to the Raiders and leave the comfort of the ESPN “Monday Night Football” broadcast booth. He wasted no time in bringing in Olson, Guenther and Bisaccia as his right-hand men. This is as all-star as it gets to help take Derek Carr and Khalil Mack to the next level.
STEELE: Raiders need to embrace present more than past
IYER: Five reasons why Raiders rehiring Gruden is perfect
Coach: Doug Pederson
Offensive coordinator: Frank Reich
Defensive coordinator: Jim Schwartz
Reich, Schwartz and quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo are rumored for other jobs, so Pederson might need to make a few changes after the Eagles’ playoff run.
Coach: Mike Tomlin
Offensive coordinator: Todd Haley
Defensive coordinator: Keith Butler
Haley might get a few calls to return to head coaching, but Tomlin is likely to have his staff remain intact after the playoffs.
San Francisco 49ers
Coach/offensive coordinator: Kyle Shanahan
Defensive coordinator: Robert Saleh
The 49ers showed major improvement and upside with both of these guys down the stretch in 2017.
Coach: Pete Carroll
Offensive coordinator: Vacant
Defensive coordinator: Kris Richard
The Seahawks decided to move on from Darrell Bevell after seven seasons. You can bet his replacement will be focused on fixing the power running game to better complement Russell Wilson.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Coach: Dirk Koetter
Offensive coordinator: Todd Monken
Defensive coordinator: Mike Smith
It was a close call, but the Bucs kept Koetter, probably because Gruden became a pipe dream. Koetter and his staff will be under pressure to come through a lot better around Jameis Winston.
Coach: Mike Mularkey
Offensive coordinator: Terry Robiskie
Defensive coordinator: Dick LeBeau
Team owner Amy Adams Strunk confirmed that Mularkey will remain the team’s head coach, an easy decision after his staff delivered a playoff victory in Kansas City on top of the team’s first postseason berth in nine years.
Coach: Jay Gruden
Offensive coordinator: Matt Cavanaugh
Defensive coordinator: Greg Manusky
Gruden saw his team go through an injury-riddled season and was given a reprieve. The big question for him going forward is whether he will have Kirk Cousins at QB in 2018.
