NFL coaching carousel: Caldwell out, Philbin in

The coaching moves started before season’s end – Jack Del Rio, Tony Sparano and Todd Haley all getting fired down the stretch – and immediately continued following the finales. Since Jan. 2, Raheem Morris, Steve Spagnuolo, Hue Jackson and Jim Caldwell have all been sent packing. Four of the positions have been filled, the latest being former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin getting hired by the Dolphins.

Here’s a three-year look at the changes – if any – made by each team around the league.
