NFL Black Monday: Full List of Firings After End of 2018-19 Regular Season

Black Monday hit the NFL hard this year.

The 2018 regular season came to an end Sunday, and teams wasted little time moving on from their coaches. The Arizona Cardinals' Steve Wilks, the Denver Broncos' Vance Joseph, the Miami Dolphins' Adam Gase and the Cincinnati Bengals' Marvin Lewis were all relieved of their duties on Monday.

These moves came after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired Dirk Koetter and the New York Jets fired Todd Bowles on Sunday. There are also openings with the Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns after they fired Mike McCarthy and Hue Jackson, respectively, earlier in the season.

While all the moves were notable, Cincinnati's decision to fire Lewis after 16 years at the helm stood out, given the length of his tenure. The Bengals failed to win a playoff game during Lewis' time on the sidelines, finishing an abysmal 0-7 in the postseason. He went 131-122-3 with Cincinnati but missed the playoffs with losing records in each of the last three seasons.

1. It seems unfair to dump Steve Wilks after only one season

They asked him to make major changes, especially in defense, without giving him a lot of new talent. That obviously takes more than a year. Iím not a Cardinals fan or a Cardinals hater; that just seems weird to me.
