Today is Black Monday, the day after the NFL's regular season, when coaches of non-playoff teams tend to get a little nervous about their job chances and job seekers get a little hungry.
This year, Black Monday got off to an early start, with several coaches getting fired before the season ended. Here are the top spots that are still open, in order of firing.
The Los Angeles Rams fired Jeff Fisher Dec. 12. He tied the record for most losses as a head coach with 165. The rams were 31-45-1 since his hiring in 2012.
The Jacksonville Jaguars fired Gus Bradley Dec. 18 after a disappointing season. The team looked promising last year, but finished dead last in the division this year at 3-13.
The Buffalo Bills fired Rex Ryan Dec. 27 after two seasons. He was fired from the division rival New York Jets in 2014.
The San Francisco 49ers fired Chip Kelly after one season on Sunday, Sports Illustrated reports. He went just 2-14 in his first year. General manager Trent Baalke was also ousted.
The San Diego Chargers fired Mike McCoy after a 5-11 season. The team has been marred by rumors of relocation, and injuries badly hurt the team's chances.
Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak wasn't fired, but he is retiring over health concerns, USA Today reports.
Black Monday is now just like Black Friday; it starts at 6:00 p.m. the prior day.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) January 2, 2017
The early firings might be a start of a new trend.
