NFL coaching, GM tracker 2018: Firings, hirings, rumors, and news

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

With the end of the NFL regular season comes changes, as teams let go of head coaches and general managers in search of a fresh start. Black Monday is typically when the coaching carousel starts, since it’s the day that most teams fire underachieving coaches.

It can start earlier, such as when Ben McAdoo got released in December, but for the most part teams don’t start making moves until the regular season is done.
