With the 2023 NFL regular season behind us and most of the 2024 postseason, teams are already preparing for next season. After eight head-coaching jobs were available, all have been filled. Most have found new general managers as well.

Rather than scouring the scatter shot reports across social media, CBSSports.com has listed all the hires — and requested interviews — below.

Head coaches

The Falcons parted ways with Arthur Smith after three losing seasons and now they are set to hire Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris after flirting with the possibility of bringing aboard Bill Belichick.

After replacing Matt Rhule as the head coach in Carolina, Frank Reich lasted less than one full season with the Panthers. Now owner David Tepper is staying inside the NFC South and hiring Buccaneers OC Dave Canales.

Jim Harbaugh has agreed to terms to become the Chargers’ next head coach, the team announced Wednesday. He will be returning to the NFL after coaching Michigan to a national championship. He replaces former head coach Brandon Staley, who accumulated a 24-25 record, including 0-1 in the postseason in his two-plus seasons as head coach of the Chargers. Harbaugh will be signing a five-year deal with Los Angeles, per ESPN.

The Las Vegas Raiders are sticking with their interim head coach and hiring Antonio Pierce, according to CBS Sports lead NFL insider Jonathan Jones. Pierce replaced Josh McDaniels and went 5-4 down the stretch in Las Vegas.

In what was rumored to be happening for days, really weeks, Bill Belichick and the Patriots parted ways last Thursday. The next morning, the Patriots executed their succession plan by hiring linebackers coach Jerod Mayo to replace Belichick.

The Titans have their new leading man after firing Mike Vrabel after six seasons in Tennessee. According CBS Sports Lead NFL Insider Jonathan Jones, Tennessee is planning to hire Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan as its new head coach. Callahan, who’s been in Cincinnati since 2019, will look to turn the Titans around with 2023 second-round QB Will Levis.

The Seahawks shocked the NFL when Pete Carroll stepped down as head coach to take an adviser role within the organization. Now the Seahawks have found his replacement, hiring Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald as their new coach. At 36, Macdonald will become the NFL’s youngest head coach.

The Washington Commanders have found their new head coach, on Thursday agreeing to terms with Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, as CBS Sports lead NFL insider Jonathan Jones reports. The team targeted several up-and-coming coaches in its search to replace Ron Rivera, who was dismissed following the 2023 season, with assistants like Ben Johnson and Bobby Slowik drawing interviews. In the end, new Commanders brass apparently opted for experience with Quinn, 53, who spent the last three seasons running Dallas’ defense.

General managers

Carolina Panthers: HIRED Dan Morgan

The team confirmed the hiring of Morgan as the team’s new general manager and president of football operations. The former Panthers star linebacker previously held the role of assistant general manager since 2021.

Las Vegas Raiders: HIRED Tom Telesco

After the Raiders hired their new head coach in Antonio Pierce, they locked up their new general manager. Former Chargers GM Tom Telesco beat out finalists Champ Kelly and Ed Dodds for the job.

Washington Commanders: HIRED Adam Peters

CBS Sports lead NFL insider Jonathan Jones reported that Washington had hired Adam Peters as its new GM

Los Angeles Chargers

In addition to parting ways with head coach Brandon Staley, they moved on from general manager Tom Telesco, who had served in the role for nearly 11 full seasons. He was with the organization through the move from San Diego. JoJo Wooden was named interim general manager. 

New England Patriots

Since Bill Belichick also ran football operations, the Patriots are currently looking for a new GM after replacing Belichick with Jerod Mayo as head coach.
