Michael DiRocco, ESPN Staff Writer wrote:Jaguars owner Shad Khan spokesman Jim Woodcock says coach Doug Marrone has not been informed he has been fired: "Reports that Doug Marrone will be dismissed after Sunday's game are 100 percent incorrect. Owner Shad Khan will meet with his football staff, which includes coaching and personnel, midweek next week."

I'm actually ok with it. Defense played much better in the second half, offense was good most of the season. Team played very hard the last half but just had too big of a hole to climb out of. Just unfortunate to see what the team might have been and yet wasted the season.

Allen had a 10-year run atop the Redskins' organization, "graduating" from EVP to GM to president, but it was evident Allen was the one calling the shots in D.C. He has a history with the Grudens, and once Jay Gruden was canned earlier in the season, the writing was on the wall for Allen. The Skins went to the playoffs twice under Allen, losing both times in the Wild Card round. Early reports out of the area are that Ron Rivera is expected to get the Redskins' coaching job. Owner Dan Snyder will probably still get involved in this situation, but Rivera is expected to be able to hire his own GM should he get the job.

RapSheet reports it should be done by the end of the day Monday. It's unclear if the Redskins even interviewed anyone else for the job, as Rivera emerged quickly as the man for owner Dan Snyder. Rivera was let go by the Panthers earlier this month and was always expected to land on his feet in short order. It's somewhat surprising he chooses to go try and fix the years-long mess in D.C., however, as Rivera probably could have gotten into a better situation. The hiring should be official in the next 12-24 hours.
