Following yet another loss, the Atlanta Falcons have finally made the decision to fire head coach Dan Quinn. This makes him the second head coach fired already this season, following Bill O'Brien getting canned last week.

While this is certainly a tough season to coach in, the NFL is a no excuses league, and there are other coaches whose seats are very hot. These are the three head coaches that will be fired next.

NFL Head Coaches Who Could Be Fired Next

1. Matt Patricia, Detroit Lions

Matt Patricia is a brilliant X's and O's type of coach, but he very clearly is not ready to be a head coach. He inherited a 9-7 team, and has put together a 10-25-1 record since then. It would be a surprise to see Patricia survive the season, as Detroit will want to compete with Atlanta and the Houston Texans in their early head coaching search.

2. Adam Gase, New York Jets

Adam Gase arguably should have already been fired, but those above him are giving him every excuse to keep his job, up to this point. Still, at some point, enough will be enough. He has a 7-14 record with the Jets, and they are likely going to blow everything up, hiring a new head coach. In that case, Gase will likely go back to being an offensive coordinator elsewhere, which he seems more qualified to do.

3. Doug Marrone, Jacksonville Jaguars

Doug Marrone has not proven to be a bad head coach, but rather this potential termination could prove to be much more of a victim of circumstance. Clearly, the team isn't set up for him to get wins. With the entire organization eyeing a complete rebuild, Marrone is unlikely to be part of it. Instead of quitting on his team, he'll get the boot this time around.
