Reid Among 4 NFL Coaches Sacked In Firing Frenzy

Posted: Updated:

Less than 24 hours after the regular season ended, NFL firings began at a furious pace.
    
In a span of about 90 minutes before lunch Monday, coaches Andy Reid, Pat Shurmur, Romeo Crennel and Chan Gailey were let go by their teams after losing seasons. None of the moves were surprising, and more are expected.
    
The Jets decided to keep their coach, Rex Ryan, but fired general manager Mike Tannenbaum.
    
The Browns made it a clean sweep, dismissing GM Tom Heckert along with Shurmur.
    
Reid was the longest tenured of the group, let go after 14 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.
    
Gailey was dumped after three seasons with the Bills, Shurmur after two in Cleveland and Crennel was coach of the Chiefs for one full season.
    
Jacksonville fired GM Gene Smith.
