What available coach is going to come to a new team where they have to learn all the players and figure how best to use them. It would be months before they figured that out and they'd essentially be a lame duck coach anyway. No, if a team fires a coach midseason then they'll almost always hire from within the organization with the understanding that the guy will probably be gone in the offseason.
