Two Coaches Out? Rams Could Fire Scott Linehan, Raiders Could Fire Lane Kiffin

Filed under: , ,

Today could be one of the biggest Mondays in recent NFL history, as not one but two head coaches are rumored to be in danger of losing their jobs.

A report prior to the Rams-Bills game said that Rams head coach Scott Linehan would be fired if the Rams lost. They did. And reports have been swirling for more than a week that Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin could be fired any day now.

For two head coaches to be fired on the same day this early in the season would be unprecedented: Only five head coaches have been fired this early in the season since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. None of those were during the same season, let alone on the same day.

But there's a good chance of it happening today, thanks to the Rams looking absolutely horrible this season, Raiders owner Al Davis hating Kiffin, and the coincidence that the Rams and Raiders both have their bye weeks. For fans of both teams -- and, of course, Linehan and Kiffin themselves -- today will be a day of waiting for the ax to fall.
