(SportsIllustrated.com)—Black Monday is here. Which coaches and GMs will get their walking papers with the 2014 season in the books?
Find all the latest updates on firings below.
Fire: head coach Marc Trestman, GM Phil Emery
• Tale of tape: 5-11 in 2014; Trestman was 13-19 in the regular season; Emery was 23-25 in three seasons as general manager.
• What went wrong: The defense was an overwhelming debacle this season, hence the 5-11 record and 27.6 points allowed per game (second most in the NFL). At the heart of both Trestman and Emery’s downfalls, though, is Jay Cutler.
