(AP) It didn’t take long.

Barely 12 hours after the NFL season ended, five head coaches were unemployed. Fired on Monday were Washington’s Mike Shanahan, Detroit’s Jim Schwartz, Minnesota’s Leslie Frazier and Tampa Bay’s Greg Schiano.

The Cleveland Browns didn’t even wait that long, dismissing Rob Chudzinski on Sunday night after just one season on the job.

Schiano only got two years with the Buccaneeers. Shanahan, who won two Super Bowls in Denver in the 1990s, spent four seasons with the Redskins. Frazier had a little more than three seasons with the Vikings and Schwartz coached the Lions for five seasons.

One coach allegedly on the hot seat was retained: Rex Ryan, who has one more year on his contract, is staying with the New York Jets.
