It’s “Black Monday” in the NFL, and so far five coaches have been fired (six if you count Houston Texans’ coach Gary Kubiak, who was let go earlier this month).
Rob Chudzinski, Leslie Frasier, Greg Schiano, Jim Schwartz, and Mike Shanahan all met with Donald Trump. He only had two words to say.

I thought Leslie Frazier should've been coach of the year in 2012. In 2013, he's out of a job. Tough business. #Vikings
