Brian Flores again showing he isn't shy about letting coaches go, even if he has lots of rapport with them: The Miami Dolphins have fired offensive coordinator Chad O’Shea, offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo and safeties coach Tony Oden.— Al Butler (@ALaboutSports) December 30, 2019
Update 11:15: The entire Dallas Cowboys staff has been fired.
I’m told entire #Cowboys coaching staff has been fired.— Mike Leslie (@MikeLeslieWFAA) December 30, 2019
UPDATE 9:36 : Looks like Rivera is going to be the next Washington head coach:
Black Monday got going a bit early with the prompt firings going on Sunday evening. That doesn’t mean things are over, they are just beginning. News about front office changes and coaching moves will be flying out Monday and we’ll use this thread to update accordingly.
We’ll post a full recap of the days moves vs what we’ve said in our primer where Pat will give out his yearly Vince’s. We’ll continue to update this as the day goes along.
The New York Giants have fired head coach Pat Shurmur, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He only lasted two years. That will be New York’s third head coach in five years.
The Browns have requested to interview Patriots’ offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels for their vacancy. The Panthers have requested to interview offensive coordinator Eric Bienemy from the Chiefs for their head coaching position. Finally, Washington has asked to interview former Panthers head coach Ron Rivera. Those two are scheduled to meet on Monday.
The first to go was the Sunday removal of Freddie Kitchens as head coach of the Cleveland Browns. as head coach. This was a given. Kitchens was on the old staff in 2018 and promoted to offensive coordinator, but it was clear that not only was his offense taking a huge step back in 2019, he was in over his head given his lack of experience.
The Dallas Cowboys are expected to fire Jason Garrett, but when/if this happens is anyone’s guess. I expect if they go through with it, it happens Monday.
It wasn’t announced Sunday, but the Atlanta Falcons have announced they are holding onto Dan Quinn for 2020. I can’t imagine his seat being all that cool after this season, but his players did play hard for his job to finish the season.
