Sadly, most of the axing is going to happen one day before the new board move, but we can certainly repost any people that are inevitable to be released on Monday.

Still, I insist that Chris gets the honor of putting Norv in this thread for good.

7 coaches down so far, with Rivera still in the air( they may be trying to see how Chip Kelly feels about Carolina before dropping the axe) and lots of talk about Garrett going as well. then you have Jacksonville and NYJ thinking they will keep the Head Coaches while Firing the GMs, so it wouldnt shock me to see both of them get Fired as well. any more im not thinking of? possibly 11 teams looking for a coach, Crazy

Man, Bud Adams is a tough boss.

http://blogs.tennessean.com/titans/2013 ... reinfeldt/

So why did Bud Adams fire Mike Reinfeldt?
January 1st, 2013 | by JIM WYATT, The Tennessean

Turn your focus away from the draft picks who didn’t pan out for the Titans under Mike Reinfeldt’s watch.

Look past some of the free agency acquisitions who failed to make the desired impact during his tenure as General Manager.

Reinfeldt wasn’t fired on Monday by owner Bud Adams for those reasons.

In my mind, one of the biggest reasons Reinfeldt is out the door is because of something else: Adams felt like Reinfeldt didn’t act fast enough – or at all — when he told him he wanted in the Peyton Manning chase last spring.

And he’s held it against him ever since.

If you remember, Adams went public with his desire to acquire the former Colts quarterback last March. He told The Tennessean he’d be “disappointed” if the Titans didn’t get him.

The Titans didn’t get Manning, of course. He ended up signing with the Broncos after being courted by several teams, including the Titans.

In the days leading up to Adams going public with his interest in Manning, he’d repeatedly told Reinfeldt he wanted the team to get involved. As senior executive vice president and COO, Reinfeldt stayed in regularly communication with the 89-year-old Adams.

Adams felt like Reinfeldt didn’t take him seriously enough, and wondered if he even spread the news to General Manager Ruston Webster or Coach Mike Munchak. At the time, the Titans were focused on making it work with quarterbacks Jake Locker and Matt Hasselbeck.

Manning, of course, turned in a great comeback season in Denver, and the Broncos have the No.1 seed in the AFC. The Titans finished 6-10 in part because of disappointing play at the quarterback position. Adams has wondered since what might have been.

Was the delayed pursuit of Manning the sole reason Reinfeldt lost his job with two years left on his contract? No. I’m sure other factors played into the decision as well.

But one thing everyone always says about Adams is you don’t want to get on his bad side. Reinfeldt never got off it, and today he’s out of a job.

Oh, but remember, he wasn't fired . . . ESPN just elected not to renew his contract after suspending him for the final one month of said contract.
