The NFL regular playing season means more than just the end of play for many of the teams; it also means a number of coaches and general managers will find themselves looking for a new job.

While a team teams did not wait until the end of the season, January 4 was indeed a “Black Monday” for others.

Last October the Atlanta Falcons fired both head coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff after the Falcons started the season with five losses.  Quinn had a record of 43 and 42 over a five season tenure.

After a brutal Thanksgiving day loss, the Detroit Lions went on a firing spree with general manager Bob Quinn, head coach Matt Patricia, and special teams coach Brayden Coombs all losing their jobs.  Patricia had a record of 12 wins with 29 loses and one tie during his time with the Lions.

After starting the season with four losses, the Houston Texans fired general manager and head coach Bill O’Brien.  O’Brien had a record of 52 and 48 while with the Texans.

The Los Angeles Chargers finished the 2018 season with a record of 12 and four; but have finished the past two seasons with a losing season.  As a result; the Chargers have fired head coach Anthony Lynn.

With just one win in the 2020 season and cementing the number one draft pick, the Jacksonville Jaguars have fired head coach Doug Marrone and general manager Dave Caldwell.  After four season with the Jaguars, Marrone had a record of 23 wins and 43 losses.

After starting the season with 13 straight losses and finishing the season with a record of two and 14, the New York Jets have fired head coach Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.  IN two years with the Jets, Gase had a record of nine and 23.

After a tumultuous season that resulted in a four and 12 record, the Carolina Panthers have fired general manager Marty Hurney.  Hurney was fired on December 21 when the Panthers had a four and 10 record.

It was a rough first year in a new stadium for the Las Vegas Raiders who finished the season with an eight and eight record.  After a blow out win by the Indianapolis Colts, the Raiders fired defensive coordinator Paul Guenther.

The coaching carousel has begun and is sure to see plenty of movement among coaches and teams during the off season.
