Week 11 in the NFL has brought talk about the future of current head coaches and who will be around in 2024. The Las Vegas Raiders have already made an interim coaching change, replacing Josh McDaniels with Antonio Pierce. The Power Rankings are analyzing the status of Pierce and the other 31 head coaches to determine who is “solid,” “safe,” or “shaky.”
Nick Sirianni, head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, has secured a “safe” status, with a record of 22-4 after going 9-8 in 2021. Despite the Philadelphia Eagles struggling, Sirianni is likely to stay in the city for a long time.
Andy Reid of the Kansas City Chiefs is considered “solid.” In the past 25 seasons, he has accumulated 254 wins, placing him fourth on the all-time wins list. Although the Chiefs have had a tough season, there is confidence that Reid and his team will overcome their struggles.
Dan Campbell, head coach of the Detroit Lions, is being reconsidered after having won 15 of his last 19 games. His recent success may have moved him from “shaky” to “safe” status.
Kyle Shanahan of the San Francisco 49ers is seen as a “solid” coach with a winning percentage of .539 after seven seasons. Despite some ups and downs, Shanahan’s success continues, and he is known as one of the best offensive designers and play callers in the NFL.
Kevin Stefanski of the Cleveland Browns scored a crucial win over the Ravens on Sunday, which may have moved him from a “shaky” status to “safe.” Despite challenges, Stefanski has shown promise and improvement throughout the season.
John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens, with a record of 154-98 in his 16th season, is viewed as a “solid” coach with a possible chance to make it to the Super Bowl.
Mike McDaniel of the Miami Dolphins has garnered appreciation for his success in the past two seasons, with a record of 15-11. He has shown a unique personality in a league where coaches often act more serious and is likely to continue being safe.
Zac Taylor of the Cincinnati Bengals is in a unique position, with his success often overshadowed by his star quarterback, Joe Burrow. Despite the Bengals’ struggles and their last place in the AFC North, Taylor is likely to remain safe in Cincinnati.
Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks is seen as a “solid” coach, having taken the team to the postseason 10 times in 13 seasons. Carroll’s influence on the team and his ability to boost player confidence make him a valuable asset to the Seahawks.
DeMeco Ryans of the Houston Texans has proven to be a great head coach in his first year, positioning the team only one game out of first place in the AFC South. His early success has silenced any doubts about his ability to lead the Texans.
Doug Pederson of the Jacksonville Jaguars has replaced controversial coaching figures and found success by being a professional coach. His second season with the Jaguars has placed them at the top of the AFC South.
Mike McCarthy of the Dallas Cowboys has shown promise with a record of 30-13 in the last three years, but his ability to perform against playoff teams remains uncertain. Despite his regular season success, he has won only one playoff game in Dallas, raising questions about his future.
Overall, Week 11 has provided insight into the status of head coaches, with some already solidified as safe for the future, while others are still on shaky ground.
