As we approach the opening of the 2012 NFL season, teams will have new faces under headsets Week 1. The Colts, Jaguars, Chiefs, Dolphins, Raiders, Rams and Buccaneers all have new coaches this upcoming season. Let take a look.
Chuck Pagano, Indianapolis Colts

Pagano will be the coach of the Andrew Luck era in Indy. He comes with a defensive perspective after spending time in Baltimore as Secondary Coach and Defensive Coordinator since 2008. Pagano also spent time coaching secondary in Oakland and Cleveland.

Mularkey hasn’t been a head coach since 2004 with the Bills.

Romeo Crennel, Kansas City Chiefs

After ending the Packers perfect season last year, the Chiefs decided to take away the interim tag. He led the Chiefs to a 2-1 record down the stretch. Crennel was the Browns Head Coach from 2005-2008.

Crennel won over the Chiefs front office with his 2-1 record down the stretch and the way the players loved playing for him.

Joe Philbin, Miami Dolphins

It has not been an easy transition for Philbin in Miami. He has had HBO’s cameras in his face for Hard Knocks and had to deal with the domestic abuse arrest of Chad Johnson. Philbin has been in Green Bay since 2003 as Tight End, Offensive Line and Offensive Coordinator.

Philbin has a had a rough start to his Dolphin career.

Dennis Allen, Oakland Raiders

A defensive guy, Allen has been a Defensive Line, Secondary and Defensive Coordinator in Atlanta, New Orleans and Denver. At 39, he is one of the youngest coaches in the NFL.

Jeff Fisher, St Louis Rams

Fisher will join the team that kept him from his chance at a Super Bowl. After spending 16 seasons and 142 wins in Tennessee, the Rams will offer him a new challenge.

Fisher has a new home after spending 16 seasons in Nashville.

Greg Schiano, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Schiano is hoping that the horrible record of previous coaches who jump to the NFL does not include him. Other than being a Defensive Assistant in Chicago, he has spent his whole career in college. He spent ten seasons running the show at Rutgers, going 5-1 in bowl games.

Schiano hopes to buck the trend of college coaches struggling in the NFL.
