With “Black Monday” on the horizon, the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that the Cleveland Browns will fire Pat Shurmer (9-22, .290) after today’s game vs. the Steelers.
Shurmer will more than likely be joined in the “Fired Coaches Club” by Norv Turner (SD), Ron Rivera (CAR), Chan Gailey (BUF), Andy Reid (PHI), Romeo Crennel (KC), Mike Munchak (TEN) and Ken Whisenhunt (ARI) fairly quickly.
The Chicago, Oakland, New York Jets and Jacksonville jobs are getting tossed around as soon-to-be open, but I see those coaches staying one for at least one more year.
Look for Andy Reid to be a Head Coach in San Diego and Crennel and Turner to be highly sought after coordinators for next season. Oregon Coach Chip Kelly and Colts OC Bruce Arians are at the top of many team’s wish lists.
