After 4 seasons with the Lions, head coach Jim Caldwell has been fired. This move comes less than a year after he signed an extension. The announcement was made Monday morning New Years Day!

From ESPN, the move comes despite Caldwell, 62, having winning seasons in three of his four years. But the Lions missed the playoffs twice in the past three years, including this season, when they went 9-7.
