2023 season coach firings, news, updates

January 8th, 2024

The first domino has fallen in the Black Monday NFL coaching cycle.

The Atlanta Falcons fired head coach Arthur Smith, the team confirmed Sunday night. Smith finished 7-10 for the third straight season, with an overall record of 21-30 as Falcons head coach and no playoff appearances.

Moreover, he seemed to have an envious stable of skill players at his disposal, such as tight end Kyle Pitts, wide receiver Drake London and running back Bijan Robinson, yet could never quite get the offense on track.

Who will join Smith looking for a new job? Three head coaches had previously been fired this season: the Las Vegas Raiders‘ Josh McDaniels, the Carolina Panthers‘ Frank Reich and Los Angeles Chargers‘ Brandon Staley. Additionally, two general managers, the Raiders’ Dave Ziegler and the Chargers’ Tom Telesco, were also let go.

Keep up with all the changes in some of the NFL’s top jobs right here with Yahoo Sports.

  • What’s next for Bill Belichick and the Patriots?

    Bill Belichick finished his 24th season in charge of the New England Patriots. Will there be a 25th?

    Yahoo Sports’ Jori Epstein was on site in Foxborough on Sunday, where Belichick confirmed he’ll meet with Patriots team owner Robert Kraft later this week — but offered nothing more.

    The biggest coaching domino of the offseason is arguably Belichick, who’s won six Super Bowls as New England head coach and built the greatest dynasty in NFL history. The entire league awaits what’s next.

  • Falcons fire Arthur Smith after another 7-10, playoff-less season

    The Atlanta Falcons kicked off the NFL’s Black Monday coaching news cycle, announcing they’ve fired head coach Arthur Smith.

    Smith spent three seasons in charge and finished 7-10 in each one of them, with no playoff appearances and an array of skill talent that left people wanting more out of the Falcons’ offense.

  • Rams head coach Sean McVay promises return to show in 2024

    This time last year, Rams head coach Sean McVay was mulling whether he wanted to step away from coaching. McVay had just signed an extension to keep him with the Rams through 2026, but he was coming off his only losing season and second year not making the playoffs since taking over in 2017.

    After some discussion, McVay decided to return. And with his recommitment, the Rams returned to their old ways. The 37-year-old also enjoyed a huge win off the field with the birth of his first child, a son, in October.

    Considering the marked improvement this season, host J.B. Long decided to ask the show’s namesake if viewers could expect him back.

    “That I can promise you,” McVay told Long.

  • Bears’ Matt Eberflus coaching himself off hot seat

    Bears head coach Matt Eberflus, long assumed to be gone after his second year in Chicago, now looks more and more like he’ll be given the chance to stay.

    The Bears hammered a playoff hopeful Falcons team 37-17 in Week 17, and quarterback Justin Fields has been playing well since his return from injury under Eberflus. Chicago is 7-9 and will miss the playoffs, but the franchise has to decide if what Eberflus and Fields have shown the second half of this season is worth investing in going forward — or if they should use the No. 1 overall pick on North Carolina’s Drake Maye or USC’s Caleb Williams, and go in a different direction at head coach.

  • Raiders interim head coach Antonio Pierce: ‘My résumé’s on the grass’

    Despite the fact the Raiders will miss the playoffs, interim coach Antonio Pierce is hopeful he’ll be hired as the full-time head coach.

    “My résumé’s on the grass, after a which I can put up a fancy presentation, I’ve seen that before,” Pierce said, a day after Las Vegas’ upset of the Chiefs at Arrowhead on Christmas. “I can put up stats. I can put up my résumé. But the best thing that happened for me was the opportunity. And like I said, maybe last week, the worst day I was going to be as a head coach was my first day. … I really take pride in growing each and every day to get better. No different than when I was a player — get better, and by the end you look at it, whatever your career was and whatever my coaching career is, that you sit there and say, ‘Look, this is what he was.'”
