Andy Reid: Fired by Philadelphia Eagles

by at .

It's Black Monday in the NFL, as multiple teams have given the axe to their head coaches less than 24 hours after completing their final game of the regular season.

Foremost among the men looking for new jobs? Andy Reid, the Eagles' career leader in wins whose squad stumbled to a 4-12 record this year.

"Andy Reid won the most games of any head coach in Eagles history and he is someone I respect greatly and will remain friends with for many years to come," owner Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement. "But, it is time for the Eagles to move in a new direction. Coach Reid leaves us with a winning tradition that we can build upon. And we are very excited about the future."

Other coaches also fired this morning include Pat Shurmur of the Browns and, most likely,  Romeo Crennel of the Chiefs and Norv Turner of the Chargers.

Rex Ryan, conversely, is expected to keep his job in New York, although General Manager Mike Tannenbaum has been fired.
