2012 Season Recap: Part I · Part II · Part III
Below are two tables that examine change at the Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator and Defensive Coordinator level for the 2013 NFL season. Eight teams will have new head coaches and there are also eight teams that have retained their head coach but they'll have a new coordinator, either on offense or defense.

I've included brief notes and prior job experience for each coach, along with their potential impact on games during the regular season based on each coaches prior job history.

For example, new Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley was the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks last season. The two teams will square off from Seattle in Week 3 and if you look at the schedule, the Seahawks play San Francisco in a Sunday Night Football matchup in Week 2 and they have a possible look-ahead game in Week 4 at Houston. Meanwhile, the Jaguars will play at Oakland in Week 2 and most would assume the team stays on the West Coast, so travel won't play a factor if that's the case.

Early odds have Seattle listed as a 14-point favorite in Week 3 over Jacksonville.
