NFL Coaches Lose Their Jobs On Black Monday

Many NFL coaches are likely going to be fired today. This is called Black Monday around the league, and it is when many coaches are shown the door. The coaching carousel begins, and teams look completely different next year.

Jim Harbaugh has already left the 49ers. The Falcons hired a search firm prior to Sunday’s game to hire a new coach, and Rex Ryan has already cleared out his office. However, there are other coaches who might be on the move due to poor performances by their teams this season.

Marc Trestman is likely to be fired in Chicago so that they can start another reclamation project. It also seems that the Raiders are looking for someone to take over on a full-time basis. They need someone to be their head coach beyond Tony Sparano, and they have begun to look.

Jay Gruden, Tom Coughlin and Joe Philbin appear to have jobs for next season, which is surprising to Terry Richardson. However, it seems that these three men likely have one more chance to turn things around before they are fired. Philbin needs to make the playoffs out of the AFC East. Coughlin needs one more season of magic, and Gruden needs to make the Redskins offense work with RGIII.
