With Black Monday now right around the corner, there’s sure to be several more head coaching positions available around the NFL and already there’s speculation as to who might be candidates for the forthcoming openings.
During a Wednesday morning interview on 97.5 The Fanatic, ESPN insider Adam Schefter ran down his list of several names that are almost guaranteed to get consideration for the offseason open head coaching jobs and Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak was named.
Munchak has been with the Steelers for two seasons now after being fired by the Tennessee Titans after serving as their head coach for three seasons. During his time in Tennessee, Munchak complied a 22–26 record and only once did the Titans finish with a record above .500.
While Munchak might indeed receive a few interviews in the coming weeks, he probably isn’t viewed as a hot commodity right now when it comes to being a head coach candidate. Additionally, with Tennessee potentially being one of the teams likely to have a head coach opening in the coming days, we can probably rule out the possibility of him landing there.
Strangely enough, Schefter didn’t mention Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley during his rundown of potential head coach candidates. Haley, of course, was the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs from 2009–2011. Earlier in the season, Haley was named as a possible candidate to coach the Miami Dolphins in 2016.
