Black Monday Toll: Seven Head Coaches Let Go

Seven head coaches were let go after the last game of the regular season, on a day traditionally known in the NFL as "Black Monday." Black Monday usually follows the last game of the regular season, when various NFL franchises begin to restructure their organizations based on the success or failure of their seasons. Despite their failure to reach the playoffs this season, many players and fans were surprised by the firing of Eagles head coach Andy Reid. Reid was hired as the Eagles head coach in 1999, when he took over a team with a 3-13 record. After acquiring star quarterback Donovan McNabb with the second overall draft pick, Reid guided the Eagles to four consecutive NFC Championship games, from 2001 to 2004, as well as the 2008 NFC Championship. Philadelphia also went to Super Bowl XXXIX under Reid's tenure, although they lost to the New England Patriots. Reid's overall record coaching the Eagles in the regular season is 130-93-1, making him the most successful coach in the franchise's history. However, Andy Reid may not be out of a job for long, as rumors are swirling that he will be hired as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. Regardless of who is coaching your favorite team, you can always find the NFL tickets you want at Maxim Tickets, the web's premier resale ticket marketplace. 

Andy Reid is not the only NFL head coach to lose his job on Black Monday. Ken Whisenhunt of the Cardinals, Chan Gailey of the Bills, Lovie Smith of the Bears, Pat Shurmur of the Browns, Romeo Crennel of the Chiefs, and Norv Turner of the Chargers were also let go.
