It's Black Monday in the NFL and as of this writing (3 p.m.), coaches Mike Smith, Marc Tressman and Rex Ryan, along with GMs John Idzik and Phil Emery, have been fired, with the 49ers and coach Jim Harbaugh agreeing to a mutual separation. Those teams are not alone in cleaning house. Here's a look at the coaches and managers fired across professional sports in 2014.
Michigan Gets Its Man
After months of rumors, Jim Harbaugh is officially heading to Michigan and students are planning a "Khaki Out" on Tuesday in his honor. The Detroit Free Press was so excited about the impending move that it put the wrong Harbaugh on the front page of Monday's editions. Harbaugh is expected to attend Tuesday's basketball matchup between Michigan and Illinois; ticket prices are soaring for the game.
