January 4th, 2011 - Tom Cable - Oakland Raiders - The Raiders announced their decision not to exercise a two-year, $5 million option on Cable's contract for 2011 and '12, two days after wrapping up an 8-8 season that gave Oakland its first non-losing record since winning the 2002 AFC championship. Cable was 17-27 with the Raiders. There's no indication yet on who will replace him.
January 3rd, 2011 - Eric Mangini - Cleveland Browns - He was 10-22 in two season in Cleveland. That's not going to get it done. President Mike Homgrem could take over coaching duties if he wants. Other candidates include: Jon Gruden, John Fox, Jim Harbaugh, Mary Mornhinweg, and Brad Childress.
December 31st, 2010 - John Fox - Carolina Panthers - After a 78-73 record in Carolina, the Panthers decided not to renew Fox's contract for next season and also have announced that the assistants will not return as well. Fox should land a job right away with openings in Minnesota and possibly Cleveland.
December 26th, 2010 - Mike Singletary - San Francisco 49ers - I think the writing was on the wall with this. Singletary I think was a little too emotional and tough to be a head coach. He even got into a shouting match with his quarterback on Sunday. Defensive line coach Jim Tomsula will take over to coach the last game of the season.
December 5th, 2010 - Josh McDaniels - Denver Broncos - Everything started out great for McDaniels last year as the Broncos raced out to a 6-0 record, but then hit the worst skid in decades in Denver. He went on to lose 17 of his next 22 games. Eric Studesville will serve as intermin coach. Rumor has it, the Broncos are eyeing Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak.
November 22nd, 2010 - Brad Childress - Minnesota Vikings - This one took a little longer than it should have. Childress was not liked by the Minnesota fans or his players especially QB Brett Favre. Leslie Frazier takes over on an interim basis. **Leslie Frazier was named head coach on January 2nd, 2011**
November 8th, 2010 - Wade Phillips - Dallas Cowboys - Phillips failed to convert all the talent he had into anything but a mediocore team, which is not what Jerry Jones had in mind. Jason Garrett takes over on an interim basis and depending on how he finishes, maybe permanant.
