The NFL’s ‘ready, set, fire’ day

The NFL’s regular season ended Sunday. And that means “Black Monday” followed, the day teams take stock of their wins and losses and, if they’re not happy, fire their head coaches and their staffs.

But finding new coaches means a scramble under intense pressure. Fans can turn into critics, teams are not allowed to recruit from their competition and owners are turning to executive search firms for help.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
