You're Fired! The First NFL Coach of the Season Has Officially Been Canned

You're Fired! The First NFL Coach of the Season Has Officially Been Canned

Ah, it's that time of year again! No, we're not talking about Christmas. We're talking about that time every year when NFL teams finally start to realize that their seasons are over and start packing it in early. The first order of business: Firing their head coach.

The Jacksonville Jaguars were the first team to do it this year. They just announced that, effective immediately, Jack Del Rio will no longer be calling the shots for the team. And we don't expect him to be the last to go, either. Chargers coach Norv Turner has enjoyed a pretty dismal 2011 campaign. Colts coach Jim Caldwell has been on the chopping block for at least a month now with his team still struggling to get their first win of the year. And even Eagles coach Andy Reid could be gone if the team doesn't start collecting Ws immediately.

It's just business, fellas. So don't take it personal. But we hope you've got a little extra holiday cash saved up. 'Cause you might not have a job for much longer.
