I think we are consistently ranking hockey low because we as a group probably know the least about it. Juggling lines, having to adjust lineups on the fly, managing minutes, there's probably more minute by minute changes there than just about any sport.

Zach Lowe has made me believe that NBA coaches have a shit ton to do.

I'd probably say:

Football
Basketball
Hockey
Baseball

I would imagine hockey coaches do the most, but no one has any idea what they do really. Otherwise, i agree with this list.

Yeah, all they do is throw the damn red hankie. Or try to ice the kicker at the end of the game.

uncle rodney rates the attactiveness of this year's open positions:

1. houston - some question of health of RBs and you don't have the worse record in the league by accident, but there is lots of talent on both sides of the ball. top pick in the draft should solve the QB situation, patient non-meddlesome owner, no state income tax. apparently this year's glamor candidate bill o'brien has locked this down.

2. detroit - some good talent to work with. apparently the salary cap situation isn't so great. ownership was patient with last coach. gotta live in the detroit area doe.

3. tampa - showed some signs of progress second half of the season and there is some talent here plus in good shape as far as the salary cap. florida weather, no state income tax. depends on who comes in as GM and whether a coach would get some say in personnel decisions. ownership group relatively poor by distracted by running man u. i'm not sold on the QB as a long-term answer. have to stay out of the locker room as much as possibly to avoid contracting a nasty skin disease. supposebly lovie smiff gets teh job and he doesn't exactly have a great history on the offensive side of the ball.

4. minnesota - a writer on SI made a mildly convincing argument that under the wilf bros this is the biggest horror show in the nfl, along the lines of "when everyone talks about how disfunctional cleveland is i think they actually mean minnesota." ouch! AP can't get it done alone. this does not look like an environment that would be attractive to a really strong candidate but there aren't all that many great coaches waiting around to be hired these days so probably have to play rising coordinator roulette and hope for the best.

5. washington - prima donna QB who has mouf of prima donna owner wrapped around his nob. bruce allen stepping up to claim he's in charge of player personnel even though he doesn't really have a track record. rabid fan base of morans with completely unrealistic expectations. you have to live in outer suburbs of northern virginia. did i mention dan snyder is the owner?

6. creverand - they gave the last guy a whole year before canning him, moran owner could be led away in handcuffs any day now, shitty roster and may be drafting a few slots too low to solve the QB shitshow. rabid fan base of morans with completely unrealistic expectations. you have to live in northern ohio. did i mention jimmy haslem is the owner?

if munchak gets canned in tennessee they probably slot into 3rd, maybe 4th.

ok, they have joe thomas, that young TE looked good, and gordon is the tits. the center is good but needs to get paid and shitty teams should probably be spending their coin elsewhere than center.

supposebly you get gus malzahn or james franklin as the HC and jim schwartz as the D coordinator.

When it came out that BOB was taking the Houston job, I was at a wedding with a ton of Penn Staters. I asked one about it, and he said that he thought Houston was the best job. I told him I disagreed, and that Cleveland was the best job.

Good story.

I think you could make the argument that the jobs after Detroit are virtually interchangeable. Yes, Florida has nice weather and no state income tax...but aren't the Bucs owners a bunch of fuck ups? Plus, it's Tampa; the Baltimore of the Gulf coast. Not exactly Biscayne Bay.

Washington, Detroit and presumably Houston are the only teams on this list with long term options at quarterback. Even if Tennessee's job comes open, they're down toward the bottom because their offense is very meh with Jake Locker.

with as offensively focused as the NFL is I can't for the life of me figure out why Lovie Smith would be considered for another head coaching job, other than the Rooney Rule obviously. Just about every aspect of the offense sucked the big one while he was in Chicago except the running game and that was only because they fell ass-backward into Matt Forte.
