8 Coaches Who Were Unfairly Fired
When it comes to coaching, a termination is much more than the loss of a job. It has the potential to tarnish one's reputation and damage a coaching career for life.

They depend on the talent, health, and cooperation of their players to make wins happen, but when the team falls short, somebody is to blame. And as the figurehead of team, it's typically the coaches who get the boot first. Sometimes the win-loss ratio isn't the problem at all, but actually an issue of insubordination or bad judgment on the coach's part. But are these good enough reasons to fire a coach and damage the team morale? If everyone deserves a second chance, then maybe we should reconsider the fairness in these eight coaches' dismissals.
