12:38 PM ET 01.01 | It's not even lunchtime on the West Coast and 15 percent of the NFL has fired their head coaches. The Browns, Chiefs, Eagles, Bills and Bears are all coach-less at the moment and there's a pretty good chance that the only reason Ken Whisenhunt and Norv Turner haven't been canned is because they're operating on Pacific time. When all is said and done on Black Friday, a total of seven coaches could be fired which accounts for more than 20 percent of the league. The top two coaching candidates on the market right now (not including the recently fired Andy Reid, who deserves a job anywhere he wants) are Jon Gruden and Chip Kelly. Beyond those two names, it's all about coordinators. Washington Redskins coach Kyle Shanahan is a coordinator and he's one that will get significant attention when it comes to teams trying to fill their head coaching voids.

Shanny's kid would get that kind of attention only if RGIII were a part of the deal.

A little nepotism goes a long way in this league. How else do you explain the Ryan twins, whom are incidentally watching the play offs from the couch.

Sooo many coaches available. Soooo many teams want them!

Kyle has done a good job adapting his offense to the personnel he has. Not sure he is ready to be a head coach yet but he has done a good job as the Skins OC.

Note to Redskins: You've got a good thing going now; don't let it go!

I believe he's being groomed by Mike to eventually take over his job.
