NFL Tickets – Fire the Guy

by on September 4, 2009 updated September 4, 2009

 In the NFL, we’re pretty used to seeing guys get fired at the end of the season. Some teams will even hand someone their walking papers mid-season. But this is the first time I can remember three guys getting their heads chopped off one week prior to opening day. This week in the NFL:

The Buffalo Bills fired O-Coordinator Turk Schonert.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired O-Coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski.

The Kansas City Chiefs fired O-Coordinator Chan Gailey.

 Man, it just doesn’t pay to be an offensive coordinator in the NFL these days. I remember when it was a path to becoming a head coach. Now it looks like the first step out the door. Three guys is almost 10% of the coordinators in the NFL. Wait, unemployment is running at about the same rate. Honestly, I’d say these guys probably got a head start on the competition for next year. None of these teams are expected to be super powers.
