The playoffs divisional matchups are set for this weekend, and while those teams prepare this week with efforts to continue their postseason runs, the eight teams that fired their coaches continue to interview candidates, some of which are still coaching.
The Bengals and Dolphins have each reportedly interviewed multiple candidates but neither has made any hiring decisions yet. The Buccaneers, Cardinals, Jets, Packers, and Broncos, on the other hand, have settled on who will be working their sidelines next season.
Here is the latest news and rumors concerning coaching vacancies in the NFL:
• The Packers and head coach Matt LaFleur were denied permission to interview Mike LaFleur, Matt's younger brother and the 49ers’ pass game coordinator. 49ers also rejected requests from the Browns and the Vikings for LaFleur, along with denying interview requests for Mike McDaniel and Rich Scangarello.
