The NFL season is entering its final four weeks.
So now is the time for coaches to make their money and try to secure a playoff spot.
While some will do that, there are a few coaches that had a disaster of a season.
Most front offices of bad teams already know if they are going to keep their coach or not.
These last few games are just a formality.
Here are two NFL coaches most likely to be fired soon.
1. Nathaniel Hackett, Denver Broncos
Despite it being only the first season as the head coach of the Denver Broncos, Nathaniel Hackett is a likely one-and-done.
The Broncos might be the most disappointing team in the NFL this season.
After acquiring Russell Wilson in the offseason, the Broncos were seen as Super Bowl contenders.
Instead, the Denver offense is the worst in the league and Hackett should be at fault for that.
Is there any good reason Nathaniel Hackett should finish the season? The Broncos are surely going to fire him after the season, so why not give an interim head coach a few games to see if he can start the process of figuring out why Russell Wilson sucks and how he can be fixed?

The Broncos hired him because he is an offensive-minded head coach.
Even though Wilson has played poorly this year, his contract is unmovable.
Their 14.9 points per game are inexcusable, and Hackett should be long gone before Wilson.
It would be shocking if Hackett is back in Denver for the 2023 season.
2. Kliff Kingsbury, Arizona Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals are another team having a disappointing season.
This is the third season for head coach Kliff Kingsbury and he has a career record of 28-33-1.
Arizona made the playoffs last season but lost in the Wild Card round.
It seems like this is the offseason when the Cardinals will be looking for a new head coach.

Kingsbury’s team has underperformed all year, and they just lost quarterback Kyler Murray to an ACL injury.
The Cardinals are averaging 21.3 points per game, which is in the bottom half of the league.
Whether it is fair or not, it seems likely Kingsbury will not be back next season.
