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.
