Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.


It's the day those in NFL circles know as "Black Monday." Today is the first day players and coaches who did not earn a playoff spot head home with hopes of a better result next year. 


For coaches, it's also the day they will hear if they are out of a job. Several coaches have been sent packing today. 

The list includes Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano, Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz and Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier. Cleveland Browns coach Rob Chudzinski was also fired on Sunday after the team's loss which culminated in a 4-12 season. 

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak will not meet with Tommy Smith until later in the week.
