NFL fans and experts take note of Black Monday, or the first day after the Super Bowl.
That’s the day wherein coaches of poor-performing teams are in trouble of getting a pink slip.
It’s when teams decide to part ways with their head coach, regardless of the years he has spent with the franchise.
Unfortunately, coaches are judged by their performance, not by the way they charm the press.
If they don’t deliver, they will likely get booted out.
With a number of head coaching changes happening this offseason, NBC Sports’ Warren Sharp raises an intriguing question.
which team improves most purely on coaching change:
CHI: Nagy ➡️ Eberfus
DEN: Fangio ➡️ Hackett
HOU: Culley ➡️ Smith
JAX: Meyer ➡️ Pederson
LV: Gruden ➡️ McDaniels
MIA: Flores ➡️ McDaniel
MIN: Zimmer ➡️ O'Connell
NO: Payton ➡️ Allen
NYG: Judge ➡️ Daboll
TB: Arians ➡️ Bowles

Sharp asks which team improves purely on the coaching change.
He listed down all the transitions that happened this offseason, the latest of which was Bruce Arians stepping down as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach and former defensive coordinator Todd Bowles taking over.
While everyone has a different take on this list, it’s worthy to point out that six of the ten coaches hired are offensive-minded.
Which Teams Will Have Success In 2022?
The Buccaneers are poised to get another playoff berth given that their roster is intact.
Therefore, Tom Brady is hoping for another Super Bowl victory and he has the teammates to do that.
The New Orleans Saints will give the Buccaneers a run for their money, especially with Michael Thomas returning.
Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins have upgraded their offense in hopes of winning the AFC East.
The same goes for Doug Pederson, who was a former quarterback before coaching the Jacksonville Jaguars.
These teams could make the jump in 2022 thanks to the coaching change.
But then again, anything is possible and these teams could underperform.
