Monday was the day that a lot of coaches in the NFL dread. The day after the regular season brings upon what’s affectionately known as ‘Black Monday.’

On this day, there is generally a myriad of underachieving coaches across the league that are shown the door by team management for their failures.

This year on Black Monday, Mike Shanahan of the Washington Redskins, Leslie Frazier of the Minnesota Vikings, Greg Schiano of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jim Schwartz of the Detroit Lions were given their walking papers as the organizations move in a new direction.

If you count the Cleveland Browns’ ousting of Rob Chudzinski, which actually happened on Sunday night because the Browns only like to waste time in promises they make to their fans, that’s 15% of the coaches in the league that were fired in a 24-hour span.

Now, if you think that’s remarkable, then this stat found by the Elias Sports Bureau may be even more incredible.

Whether you like New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick or not, you can’t question his longevity. And, nothing emphasizes how impressive that longevity really is more than the fact that there have now been 111 different head coaches in the league since the Pats hired the three-time Super Bowl-winner back in 2000:

Again, like him or not, that’s impressive.
