Team: San Diego Chargers
Year fired: 2007
Previous season: 14-2; Lost in division round
The Chargers improved from their 9-7 record in 2005, but Marty Schottenheimer, who holds the records for most wins without a Super Bowl, still couldn't get it done in the playoffs. The New England Patriots defeated Schottenheimer in his last NFL game with a late fourth-quarter field goal. Marty got his first championship in the UFL in 2011 and earned a cool million for the eight-game season.
