Carolina Panthers

  • Offensive coordinator Joe Brady

 

The Panthers fired Brady on Dec. 5 following a 5-7 start to the season. Brady came to Carolina after one stellar season at Louisiana State University where he was the passing game coordinator for a national champion that featured eventual NFL starts Joe Burrow, Ja'Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson.

 
 

Chicago Bears

6-11-0
  • Head coach Matt Nagy
  • GM Ryan Pace

 

The Bears fired Nagy and Pace on Jan. 10, one day after Chicago's season ended in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings to complete a 6-11 campaign. Nagy led the Bears to two playoff appearances in his four years in Chicago, including a 12-4 season in 2018 that earned him AP Coach of the Year honors. Nagy ends his time leading the Bears with a 34-31 record. Pace was brought in as GM in Chicago when the Bears also hired John Fox as HC. Chicago went 48-65 with Nagy as GM, with his three most notable moves being the decision to trade up and select quarterback Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, trading for pass rusher Khalil Mack ahead of the 2018 season, and trading up to pick Justin Fields at No. 11 overall in the 2021 draft.

 
 

Denver Broncos

  • Head coach Vic Fangio

 

The Broncos fired Fangio on Jan. 9 after Denver lost to the Chiefs to end its season at 7-10. Fangio lasted three seasons as Broncos head coach and finished his tenure with a 19-30 record. Fangio was previously a defensive coordinator for the Bears, 49ers, Texans, Colts and Panthers.

 
 

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Head coach Urban Meyer

 

The Jaguars fired Meyer on Dec. 16 after a 2-11 start to his first season in Jacksonville. Meyer's tenure was defined by losses on the field and controversy off it. Jaguars owner Shad Khan publicly rebuked Meyer in October after the coach was seen in a viral video with a woman who was not his wife dancing close to his lap at a bar in the days following a prime-time loss to the Bengals. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero on Dec. 11 also reported a list of internal issues with Meyer, including a staff meeting in which he "delivered a biting message that he's a winner and his assistant coaches are losers."

 
 

Miami Dolphins

  • Head coach Brian Flores

 

The Dolphins fired Flores on Jan. 10, one day after they beat the Patriots to finish the season 9-8. It marked Flores' second consecutive winning season in Miami (10-6 in 2020), but the Dolphins did not make the playoffs in Flores' three years as head coach. Flores went 24-25 in Miami.

 
 

Minnesota Vikings

  • Head coach Mike Zimmer
  • GM Rick Spielman

 

The Vikings fired Zimmer and Spielman on Jan. 10 following the conclusion of an 8-9 season. Zimmer's firing comes after the Vikings turned in consecutive sub-.500 seasons for the first time since he was hired in 2014. Zimmer had the seventh-longest coaching tenure among the NFL's 32 clubs and went 72-56-1 in Minnesota. Spielman began his career with the Vikings in 2006 as director of player personnel. He officially became general manager in 2012. Zimmer and Spielman's best season together came in 2017 when the Vikings went 13-3 and made the NFC Championship Game.

 
 

New York Giants

  • Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett



The Giants fired Garrett on Nov. 23 following a 3-7 start to the season. Head coach Joe Judge hired Garrett ahead of the 2020 season to serve as his first OC in New York. Garrett previously went 85-67 in more than nine seasons as head coach of the Cowboys.

Coaching isn't a career if you want job security.  I know some coaches have gotten grief for leaving teams looking for bigger payouts, but the schools/teams wouldn't keep the coaches around if they weren't doing well, so it's hard to blame them.

This is our owner.  Word on the street is she's fair but doesn't mess around.  She's business savvy but has no interest in becoming a mouth piece.  In other words, she is Satan. And she's got a lot more money than Jerry.

Jody Allen, the sister of the late Paul Allen, represents the foundation that now owns the Seattle Seahawks.
