The NFL regular season is done and there have been plenty of names on the hot seat, as far as coaches. Some of them got the boot to start the year after consecutive losing seasons or missing the playoffs one too many times. Others had decent tenures with their franchise, but were told the team is headed in another direction.
If you haven’t been keeping up with the latest news, we got you on the latest.
After missing the playoffs for the third year in a row, the Indianapolis Colts fired head coach Chuck Pagano. The Colts did not have Andrew Luck for the year and have been getting worse, after he posted 11-5 records the first three seasons.
He leaves Indianapolis 53-45 in six seasons.
Jack Del Rio is out as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders after a 6-10 season. The team was riddled with injuries and missed out on the playoffs when expectations were to make a run at the Super Bowl to start the year.
Owner Mark Davis is looking to replace him with Jon Gruden, according to Adam Schefter.
Head coach Bruce Arians has retired from the Arizona Cardinals after five seasons with the team, citing he wants to spend more time with his family. He is the ending his tenure as the most winningest coach in the history of the franchise, going 50-32-1.
He gave a tearful goodbye to a media through a press conference earlier today, giving his reasons of when he knew he would retire and why.
Jim Caldwell was relieved of his duties as head coach by the Detroit Lions, after signing an extension less than a year ago and posting a 9-7 record this year. His tenure lasted only four seasons. General manager Bob Quinn made the decision to fire him because he said the team needed a new voice and leader and his goal is to win championships.
John Fox will not be coming back to the Chicago Bears next season, after being fired by the team today. The Bears finished last in the division for a third year in a row.
