I never understood this. Replacing the head coach isn't always the answer. Take the Eagles for example: Andy Reid was in charge for 14 seasons and let go last offseason. He had a winning record and a playoff appearance nine times in that duration, including six division titles, five NFC Championship game appearance, and a SB appearance. He was 8-8 twice in his tenure. That mean he had just three losing seasons in 14 years. One of those was the start of his tenure when the team was in shambles with a rookie QB and not feasible for any coach make into winners so quick. Another was a year with such a huge amount of injuries to key players such as the QB, RB, WR, OT, C, CB, and even the Kicker and punter. It really isnt logical that any coach could have had a winning season considering all the injuries. That just leaves one more loss. He had a winning percentage of .585 in the regular season and .526 in the playoffs. Beyond winning a super bowl, he really couldn't do anything else to warrant keeping his job. I understand if someone wants him gone specifically for that reason but what makes you think the next guy will do any better? The eagles certainly aren't alone. Cleveland is now on their sixth coach since rejoining the league since 1999. I really think that many coaching changes is counterproductive. When a team is ran a certain way under one coach, it really has to start all over under another. A team that runs in a zone defense could now change to a man to man. Also, look at Ken Whisenhunt. He had a super bowl appearance in his short duration in AZ but when his super bowl QB retired his team reflected the loss. Perhaps, one could argue that it was his fault for not obtaining another solid QB but there is only so many of those that go around. Meanwhile, the Steelers have had just had three head coaches since the 60's and I think this leads to part of their success. In the late 90's or early 2000s the steelers were rumored to think about replacing Cowher but they proved everyone wrong when they rewarded him with a contract extension instead. Cowher repaid the favor when he won them a super bowl. Changing the coach isn't always the answer.
