Who is Gus Bradley? And why is Wisenhunt on the list? Tennessee has had less than nothing to work with in the last few years.
For the record, i vote Lovie.

I think Lovie will be the coach that loses his job mid season, if anyone... Caldwell won't lose his job unless they go 1-15.

several of those teams don't make changes easily.

Pagano for sure.. The owner, GM, and coach are all fighting constantly
and the GM and Owner just had a public spat last week.

Lovie, I think he should be fired but might not be

Reid same thing

Fisher I think stays they seem to somewhat pleased with progress

Jacksonville is safe with one or two more wins I think

Who had Whisenhunt?

Ken Whisenhunt - OT - Titans

Titans fired coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Mike Mularkey, who was the head coach in Jacksonville in 2012, will serve as the interim coach. Whisenhunt posted an abysmal 3-20 record as the coach in Tennessee and has now won just four games in his last 35 as a head coach in the NFL. The Titans offense was a train wreck under Whisenhunt, scoring just 16.5 points a game during his tenure, and there have been reports he lost the locker room and had "tension" with other coaches. The good news for Tennessee is Marcus Mariota, Taylor Lewan and Jurrell Casey are solid building blocks who should make Tennessee an attractive option for available coaches this offseason.

@WillBrinson NFL job security at an all time low when a guy who drafted a QB No. 2 overall doesn’t get more than 7 games.

Please change your ugly uniforms Titans. The navy/baby blue combo is killing my eyes.

LOL! I like their uniforms. :)

Whisenhunt sure didn't get much time to turn things around in TN, did he?

Sure didn't. Whisenhunt looks the part and was on the staff of those Steelers teams that were so consistently competitive. Is he a guy who was riding coattails? Is better suited as a coordinator? Would the titans just be throwing good money after bad keeping him in place, or has he just never had enough of a chance to turn around a terrible franchise? Its hard to get a real read on the guy, but Tennessee has been a MESS for a few years now.

He also coached the Cardinals to a near Super Bowl win. It took a heroic late game drive by the Steelers to beat them.

Yes, and they didn't even give him two full seasons to turn things around. He's coached the same number of games for the Titans that Zimmer has coached for the Vikes.

He's had a dismal record over those games though. The Titans obviously felt like they'd seen enough.

I wonder if Hue Jackson will get another chance soon. He did a solid job with a talent deprived raiders team only to be jettisoned like so many other coaches in Oakland, and now is doing well in Cincy. He will also fulfill "rooney rule" requirements so he'll likely get at least some chances to interview.
