Social media and the advent of instantaneous communication have made it more difficult for coaches. There are seldom coaches that have an elongated tenure with a certain team due to an over reactive media and a “win-now” culture from fans.
Bill Belichick and Marvin Lewis– the coaches of the New England Patriots and the Cincinnati Bengals, respectively– are currently the longest tenured Head Coaches in the NFL. And, with their teams both expected to perform favorably in the 2013 NFL Season, their jobs appear to be secure.
However, the aforementioned coaches are two abnormalities in a business where everyone is only as good as their most recent performances. And, with six teams that still haven’t tasted victory, it is safe to say that there are several coaches who are on the proverbial—and league-wide dreaded—“Hot Seat”.
