Josh McDaniels is head coach of the Denver Broncos no more, after the team fired him Monday night. McDaniels was not even two full years into a four-year contract as the head coach, but the turbulence of this season proved to be more than owner Pat Bowlen had the patience to endure.
McDaniels will be remembered for his miserable personnel choices, bad sportsmanship that put him on the wrong side of numerous coaching counterparts, and an utterly unnecessary scandal over taping a San Francisco 49ers practice in London in October.
He finished with an 11-17 record at the helm of the Broncos, which is perhaps as good a reason as any for his dismissal: The team is currently floundering its way to the bottom of the AFC West at 3-9.
No reason compels us to dwell on the past, so let us forget about McDaniels (who will be replaced for the remainder of the season by erstwhile running backs coach Eric Studesville) and set about the task of examining all of the NFL's remaining masterminds.
