Fascinating Coaching Graphic -- Each NFL team's last 3 HC's

Dannyc58 : 3/14/2014 10:46 am
I'd love to look at the graphic  
derpaderp : 3/14/2014 10:56 am : link
But huge ads at completely blocking the entire upper right corner of the image and they cannot be closed.
Cleveland with 3 coaches since 2011...

It must be at least a little difficult to find some positives if you're a Browns fan.
Stability is easy when you find good HCs

The Pats are a model of stability only because of Bill Belichick, not because the Pats have this virtuous model of not firing coaches.
Pittsburg

Only three coaches since 69, that is amazing in this day and age.
I wish they added red dots for SB appearances

Not just championships. Getting there is a huge accomplishment and it is against the teams you compete with the most, your conference.

That's true, but it's also noteworthy that the teams gave these good coaches enough time to shine.

Coughlin on the Redskins would have been fired after 2006. Cowher on the Chargers would have been given the boot well before he got a chance to win a Super Bowl.

In many cases, teams that show patience with their coaches do better in the long run.
Would have been interesting overlaid with GM/FO data

I would think the more stability you have in the FO, the more it translates down to the coaching and the team.

Keep changing GM, GMs want new coaches and have new philosophies, and the turnover cycle begins.

This is standard issue post-hoc.
not surprising

that most of the "dots" (championships) are clustered toward the top.

Meh, with a few exceptions the biggest correlation in regards to length of coaching tenure is success of the QB.

Reid/McNabb
Holmgren/Favre/Hassleback
Boyz in the Hood/Big Ben
Shannahan/Elway
Fischer/McNair
Little Bill/Brady
Payton/Brees

You're not going to see a team with a franchise stud QB changing coaches really often for the most part.

Conversely, I think some underestimate the role of luck in a given season. Some coaches are given a leash far too short - due to external pressures. The Giants held on to Coughlin multiple times when a less patient franchise would have canned him.

Perhaps my belief that coaches are often not given enough time to prove themselves is irrelevant to this thread, because I agree with your statement regarding this particular post.

Shouldn't been done from the door. Freaking people.
actually, the interesting thing is....  
Greg from LI : 3/14/2014 1:23 pm : link
....how rarely SB winning coaches get fired. Billick and Shanahan are the only two in that category, and it took quite a while in both cases.

The second one

And link both solve my problem. Thanks for both.
