Less than 24 hours after losing 31-21 to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, Rod Marinelli has been fired as the head coach of the Detroit Lions.
Marinelli's Detroit Lions just capped off an 0-16 season to become the worst team in NFL history. The 1976 expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-14) were the last NFL team to complete a season without a victory.
Marinelli isn't the only coach to draw a pink slip today. Cleveland released head coach Romeo Crennel and Eric Mangini was fired in New York, which opens up the Jets coaching duties for former Steelers coach Bill Cowher.
