How Many Head Coaches Will Be Fired This Year?

The Kansas City Chiefs fired head coach Todd Haley earlier this becoming the second team to fire their head coach this season (and Tony Sparano was the third later that day). Jack Del Rio with the Jacksonville Jaguars was the first one gone so as of now we have three coaches that have been fired.

I've been wondering how many coaches in all will be fired after the season and including the three that have already been fired I see four more potential casualties in the coaching world this year.

Should be fired: Norv Turner (San Diego Chargers), Raheem Morris (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Steve Spagnoulo (St. Louis Rams).

Hot seat is very hot: Jim Caldwell (Indianapolis Colts)

So that's seven total but there are always a few surprises. Would the Giants fire Tom Coughlin if they lose to Dallas next week? And speaking of Dallas, would the Cowboys part ways with Jason Garrett if they lost? A few first year coaches have had rough years like Pat Shurmur (Cleveland Browns). Andy Reid (Philadelphia Eagles) has been on the hot seat but is expected back.

My total number of firings stands at seven -- the three that have already been fired and then the four listed above. Any others you think I missed?
