As it turns out, it is the Buffalo Bills who will be the first team to fire its head coach.
Dick Jauron is out in Buffalo, and he will be replaced by Perry Fewell on an interim basis. The firing of Jauron ends a period of mediocrity in Bills history. Jauron went 24-33 in his time with the Bills, including a dysfunctional 3-6 start to this season.
Last year, when Buffalo underachieved to a 7-9 record, many thought that the Bills would fire Jauron after the 2008 season, but, he was give an extension, which was a huge suprise.
Today, the Bills suprised us again with the firing, the first of what should be many to come this year.
The question now, is where the Bills will go from here? Mike Shanahan, Bill Cowher, Jon Gruden, Mike Holmgren, and Tony Dungy are all big named coaches with Super Bowl rings who are available. The Bills should seriously consider hiring one of these men to lead this franchise, which has not been to a playoff game since 1999.
