And so it begins, the NFL’s end-of-year firing squad known as “Black Monday” has commenced. If you’re a regular follower of mine, you know that I released my annual “Coachey” awards a few weeks ago.
From what I can see so far today, I wasn’t that far off. Although I must admit, I find it strange that people losing their jobs has become a source of entertainment, but that’s the NFL for you. Anyway, here’s an updated on the latest firings. I’ll be updating this list throughout the day so keep checking back.

Lovie Smith – Chicago Bears (A bit surprising)
