Five NFL Assistant Coaches Who Could Become Head Coaches Soon
As the National Football League heads into the second half of the 2014 season there is a growing divide between those who are contenders and those teams that are pretenders that may be looking for head coaches next season. Oakland has already fired Dennis Allen and its safe to say that they probably won't keep interim head coach Tony Sparano. Atlanta and the New York Jets are two other prime candidates to be looking for head coaches in 2015 as Mike Smith has not been able to turn things around in Atlanta.

With that being said here is a look at five assistant coaches who could become head coaches in the National Football League as soon as this offseason.
