Raheem Morris of the Tampa Bay Buccanneers is the second NFL coach to be fired today, according to ESPN and the NFL Network.

Earlier, the St. Louis Rams’ Steve Spagnuolo was the first casualty on Black Monday. Morris was 17-31 in three seasons with the Bucs, who started 4-2, then cratered with 10 consecutive losses. (Eight of those came after the team picked up Albert Haynesworth.)

There now are five vacant head-coaching position in the league: Jacksonville, Kansas City, St. Louis, Miami and Tampa Bay.
