Jets, Falcons, Bears sack coaches after bad years


NEW YORK: The New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons and Chicago Bears fired their coaches Monday, only hours after concluding woeful National Football League campaigns. The Jets dumped coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik after a 4-12 season, the Bears sacked coach Marc Trestman and general manager Phil Emery following a 5-11 campaign, and the Falcons axed coach Mike Smith after a 6-10 record this year. Two other NFL clubs are in the market for new coaches as well. The San Francisco 49ers parted ways with Jim Harbaugh minutes after a Sunday win over Arizona concluded an 8-8 campaign and Oakland finished the season 3-13 under interim coach Tony Sporano after Dennis Allen was fired following an 0-4 start.
