The Green Bay Packers made an uncharacteristic, yet very necessary move on Sunday following their loss at home to the Arizona Cardinals. They finally fired head coach Mike McCarthy, who’s been on the hot seat pretty much since the season began.

Many were stunned. Two-time Super Bowl winner Tony Dungy, now an analyst with NBC Sports, decried the move. So did others. But it absolutely was the right call. McCarthy had completely lost his team and had fallen to a Cardinals squad that didn’t have a franchise win at Lambeau since the 1949 season.

So, who’s next? Which other NFL head coaches are going to see their names plastered on headlines nationally when their number is called?

These five are likely next up on the chopping block.
