The NFL issued a resolution to make changes to the league’s hiring process with goal of helping candidates properly prepare for the interviews related to the coaching positions.
The resolution calls for changing the window of availability for prospective head coaches. Moving forward, NFL teams won’t be eligible to interview a candidate for a head coach position who works for one more team within the league until three days following the tip of the regular season. The change also applies to the teams that fail to make the playoffs or earn a first-round bye. Coaches who’re leading teams in wild-card games might be required to attend three days after their first-round matchups.
Secondly, candidates for coaching positions who’re working for one more team won’t be allowed to conduct in-person interviews until in spite of everything of the wild-card games have been accomplished. Nevertheless, internal candidates and non-affiliated NFL employees can have the chance to interview in person before the wild-card game are finished.
The league’s latest policy might be effective through May 31, 2024.
