Default The Fired Coaches Thread!

Todd Bowles, New York Jets
Hard to argue with this one. 4 years in the job and a 24-40 record with no post season action. It's not like he hasn't been given time.

Adam Gase, Miami Dolphins
A 23-25 record over 3 seasons, but has Gase really been the problem here? The roster is a mess and the turnover of players who have gone on to do well elsewhere has not helped.

Vance Joseph, Denver Broncos
11-21 over two seasons is almost 2 losses for every win. A team with the legacy of the Bromcos expects better although the QB moves of GM John Elway haven't helped. Elway needs to shoulder some of the responsibility here.

Dirk Koetter, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
19-29 over 3 seasons and 2 consecutive 5-11 seasons. The Bucs do feel like the poor relations in the NFC South at the moment and 11 seasons of missing the playoffs has got to hurt. Koetter is the latest in a long line of people who haven't managed to turn this around.

Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals
Marvin Lewis has done tremendously as Bengals head coach. Before his tenure this was a franchise that hadn't enjoyed success in a while and was scoffed at in much the same way as the Browns have been in recent years. He won more than he lost and got to the Play Offs 7 times. Ultimately, missing the playoffs for the third successive year probably meant it was time to move on.

Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers
Some people would have scratched their heads over this one. 13 seasons in the job and a
125-77-2 record plus a Super Bowl win and a couple of Championship game losses. However, when you consider that he's had Aaron Rodgers at QB all that time and has only won one Superbowl, this is shocking. This is comparable to the Colts only winning one Super Bowl when Peyton Manning was there - and in both cases the inability to get the defense fixed was probably the reason.

Steve Wilks, Arizona Cardinals
I know he only won 3 games, but seriously what were the ownership expecting? This team does not have a good roster. Bill Belichick couldn't get this team to the Play Offs.

Hue Jackson, Cleveland Browns
Really should have gone after going 0-16 last season and an overall 3-36-1 record tells you all you need to know. The fact that his interim replacement has gone 5-3 with the same roster is also indicative of Jackson's failings.

Thought Wilks might get one more year, especially after Peterson and Fitzgerald spoke out in support of him. Hard to argue with many of those decisions though...

Wilks unlucky to lose his job.

Gase also. I guess the last 3 games sealed his fate. Had they beaten the Jags and perhaps the Bills I think he survives.

Marrone@Jags very lucky to survive, that side is a total shambles from the team that almost got to the superbowl the year before.

Kyle Shanahan will be on the hot seat if the 49ers don't at least get 8 or 9 wins next season. I'd imagine losing seasons next season for Detroit, Buffalo,Redskins, Giants and Panthers will get their coaches fired.

Wilks definetly got a raw deal but the GM wasn't going to fire himself,also probably been a defensive guy and the NFL trend of needing to get a HC who can develop young QB's(Rosen) blah blah blah couldn't have helped with all the hot young guys on offence out there.

hopefully Marvin Lewis gets a new job this off-season.think the knock of never winning a play-off game seems to count more which maybe over shadows how well him coached up the Bengals to compete with the Ravens/Steelers in the North with an owner who doesn't always spend money.

still wonder if Dalton didn't get injuryed in '15 think they would have made the superbowl but since then free agency and more injuries have wrecked the roster.

Gase is an interesting one with how many games he had to coach without the franchise QB with Tannehills injury record but also some of the Dolphins defeats where ugly down the stretch.Ross seems to be linked with trying to get a big high profile HC so lets see if that pans out.

think the Jags should have cleaned house including the GM/Coughlin/HC but maybe they sold the owner on 2018 been the exception now rather than 2017.....

Dan Quinn must also be a sub 10 win season away from the sack,cleaned out all the co-ordinators even though it was his defence that maybe under preformed.

Steady on mate, they'd need to win a playoff game first let alone 3!

Nice stat, only 2 coaches have gone 12 straight seasons without making the Super Bowl not getting fired. Marvin Lewis and Chuck Noll. Though Noll did have a little bit of credit in the bank having won 4 Super Bowls for the Steelers before that.

Unless they go 6-10 McDermott won't be fired in Buffalo. He got huge amounts of goodwill from the playoffs, and they are in total rebuild. As long they show progression, he is safe

the Bengals where 10-2 when Dalton's season finished and looking good for a play-off bye.

the Bengals have hardly been big spenders in free agency during Lewis's tenure and who ever goes in there will surely find out that Mike Brown aint changing anytime soon.

The Titans went 10-0 in 2008, but it didn't mean I expected them to do anything other than blow it in the post-season. Which they duly did.

Agree Lewis did well with what he had. Just come playoff time, Bungles gonna bungle.

The Bengals are actually a pretty big mess. Certain other franchises get the heat, maybe as they have higher profile owners, players or media markets. But this is a franchise that has had terrible attendances in the last few years and an ownership that many fans really dislike. They are a serious relocation threat at some point in the future, I think. Only the Chargers in their small stadium had lower attendance. And the Bengals were getting similar figures while they were making the playoffs too.
