One of the most unpredictable NFL regular seasons in history has now come to an end and the head coach carousel is well and truly spinning.
It wasn't long following the conclusion of Sunday's games that several managers were relieved of their duties.
With the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns all now without their head coach, one other team has lost their shot caller.

After 12 years and two Super Bowl titles, Tom Coughlin has stepped down as head coach of the New York Giants.
Coughlin met with Giants ownership on Monday and as a result, he has decided to step down and leave the team after 12 years.
Following the conclusion of a third losing season for New York, Coughlin will now leave the running of one of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL to someone else.
"I met with John Mara and Steve Tisch this afternoon, and I informed them that it is in the best interest of the organization that I step down as head coach," - Coughlin following his decision to step down
The Giants went 6-10 this season and only won one of their final seven games to end the season - despite them being contenders for the NFC East divisional title at one stage.
New York lost out on the divisional title to the Washington Redskins in the end but even with stars like Odell Beckham Jr and Eli Manning, they haven't reached the heights they should have for a long time.
Moving forward for the Giants, only time will tell who they get to replace the long serving coach and if that man can move them to the winning record that they crave.
Following the conclusion of the regular season, the 20 teams who missed out on the play-offs learnt their draft position.
The Giants sit 10th in the upcoming NFL Draft and with needs for a defensive lineman and runningback, they could be in for an interesting off-season.
