It's officially Black Monday for NFL head coaches. The 2022 season has come to a close and there are a number of guys firmly on the hot seat. Follow along as we update all the latest firings and coaching changes from across the league.

Arizona Cardinals fire Kliff Kingsbury

The Cardinals have moved on from Kliff Kingsbury after four lackluster seasons. The 43-year-old compiled a record of 28-37-1 in his time in the desert but could never create any kind of consistent success. Arizona general manager Steve Keim exited at the same time, announcing he was stepping aside on Monday. We already have a list of potential Kingsbury replacements up.

Houston Texans fire Lovie Smith

After one season, the Houston Texans had enough of the Lovie Smith Era. The Texans went 3-13-1 in 2022, and missed out on securing the top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft because they beat the Indianapolis Colts 32-31 on Sunday. That comeback win handed the No. 1 pick to the Chicago Bears. I doubt that had much with Smith's ouster.

Smith was officially let go just after the final game came to a close. He became the first coach to be fired at the completion of the 2022 season. While he didn't technically get the boot on "Black Monday" we're still counting it.
