UNDATED (WHTC) -- It’s Black Monday and the firing of NFL head coaches has begun. As expected, the Lions fired Jim Schwartz after the Lions' collapse. Detroit had a 6-3 record following a win in Chicago on Nov. 10, but lost six of its last seven games to finish a disappointing 7-9. Schwartz finished his five-year tenure with a 29-51 record and one winning season. Other coaches were also fired today. Minnesota made the first move this morning, firing Leslie Frazier after three plus seasons. Washington canned Mike Shanahan after four seasons. Tampa Bay's fired both coach Greg Schiano and general manager Mark Dominik.
