Monday was a tough day for NFL head coaches as eight of them were fired.
Eight teams, or a quarter of the entire league, are now looking for a new head coach, and two names that came up often in rumors Monday were New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive coach Brian Flores.
McDaniels and Flores are two young coaches who've been very successful in their roles with the Patriots. McDaniels also has previous head coaching experience, and nearly took the Indianapolis Colts job before controversially backing out before the 2018 season.
These Patriots coaches are allowed to interview this week because New England has a first-round bye as the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs.
Here's a list of the teams that reportedly have requested to interview McDaniels and Flores.
