Black Monday

What is Black Monday?

The day after the NFL regular season ends, when coaches and General Managers on the hot seat may anticipate being fired.

Sporting Charts explains Black Monday

The firing of a head coach in the NFL is not a rare occurrence. It is a league based on performance and results, much like most professions. But in a high-pressure position in a high-stakes business, you need to win sooner rather than later in order to keep your job. The average coaching span in the NFL is three to four years.
