Browns coach Eric Mangini isn’t getting fired, but his counterpart in Seattle is. Jim Mora, Jr. was let go by the Seahawks earlier today after just one year in the head job for which he had been groomed in the previous two.
The Seahawks finished 5-11 this year, third place in the NFC West. They finished the year on a four-game losing streak during which they failed to score more than 13 points in any game.
Mora, 48, previously coached the Atlanta Falcons from 2004-2006 and led them to an 11-5 record and the NFC championship game in his first season. He was an assistant head coach with the Seahawks from 2007-2008 before taking over the head job. –FOX Sports.
So fire up the Cowher-Dungy rumors again. I personally would love to see Cowher’s chin in Seattle, which I understand can store 12 ounces, or 15-dollars-worth of Starbucks coffee. But Jim Zorn, who was plucked from that same staff for Washington’s head job, might also be a candidate. But still, firing a guy after one year? Almost an entire week after the regular season has ended? Crazy. Don’t worry, Junior. I hear South Florida needs a coach. How’s your jab?
