The NFL playoffs continue this weekend as several NFL teams continue to look for their new head coach. Once again, it's the Kellen Moore season, as the former Boise State quarterback is one of the hottest prospects to become an NFL head coach. Coach Moore does have some stiff competition, as Bill Belichick, Jim Harbaugh, Pete Caroll, and Mike Vrabel are some of the top names for the current open positions. 

Kellen Moore is one of the most brilliant offensive minds in the game. He's still in the running for the Los Angeles Chargers spot, where he was the offensive coordinator. The team was on a great run until franchise quarterback Justin Herbert was injured midseason.
