The Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings, Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers all fired their head coaches a day after the regular season concluded as part of the NFL's so-called "Black Monday."

The Redskins axed Mike Shanahan, the Vikings parted ways with Leslie Frazier, the Buccaneers fired Greg Schiano and the Lions axed Jim Schwartz after each team finished well out of the playoff picture.

Shanahan's Redskins went 3-13, Frazier's Vikings finished 5-10-1 and Schiano's Bucs went 4-12 as all teams finished last in their respective divisions. Schwartz's Lions were 7-9.

The announcements came a day after the Cleveland Browns fired head coach Rob Chudzinski after his team closed out the 2013 season with a seven-game losing streak to finish 4-12.
