With the regular season over, the ordering of the 2015 Draft's top 20 picks has been determined.

Several non-playoff teams will be making coaching and/or GM changes today. We'll update this post throughout the day as news emerges:


San Francisco announced on Sunday that Jim Harbaugh would not be back for a fifth season; the Michigan alum is expected to coach the Wolverines.

Possible candidates: Adam Gase, Kyle Shanahan, Todd Bowles, Dan Quinn


Harbaugh was Oakland's top choice; they'll now have to start their search elsewhere.

Possible candidates: Jack Del Rio, Todd Bowles, Rex Ryan.


As expected, the Jets fired GM John Idzik and coach Rex Ryan; Charley Casserly and Ron Wolf will lead the search for their successors.

In something of a last-ditch effort, the Jets are said to be contacting Jim Harbaugh about their opening.

Possible GM candidates: Seattle personnel director Trent Kirchner, Minnesota assistant GM George Paton

Possible coaching candidates: Dan Quinn


Atlanta axed Mike Smith, but GM Thomas Dimitroff is said to be safe.

Possible candidates: Adam Gase, Josh McDaniels, Rex Ryan, Teryl Austin, Todd Bowles


Chicago fired GM Phil Emery, head coach Marc Trestman, and OC Aaron Kromer, but not the defensive coaches; they've hired Ernie Accorsi as a consultant

Possible candidates: Mike Shanahan, Gary Kubiak


As had been suggested over the weekend, Tom Coughlin will return for another season.
