Broncos part ways with head coach Vic Fangio after three losing seasons
The Denver Broncos actually got the ball rolling a day early since their season ended Saturday with a 28-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Broncos fired Vic Fangio on Sunday after going 19-30 over three seasons at the helm.

Dolphins fire head coach Brian Flores after three seasons
The Miami Dolphins announced Monday they have fired head coach Brian Flores.
Flores missed the playoffs in all three seasons he coached the Dolphins and compiled a 24-25 record.
“I made a decision today to part ways with Brian Flores,” Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said in a statement. “After evaluating where we are as an organization and what we need going forward to improve, I determined that key dynamics of our football organization weren’t functioning at a level I want it to be and felt that this decision was in the best interest of the Miami Dolphins.
“I believe we have a talented young roster in place and have the opportunity to be much better in 2022. I want to thank Brian for his hard work and wish him nothing but the best in his future.”
