In something of a surprise move, the Carolina Panthers fired head coach Frank Reich on Monday, reliving him of his duties after just 8 games at the helm. It makes him the shortest-tenured NFL coach since 1976, as even Urban Meyer lasted two more games than Reich, but things are apparently bad enough with the 1–10 Panthers that a move needed to be made immediately.

Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor will take over the head coaching duties on an interim basis for the remainder of the season, but there will be a search for a new head man as soon as the regular season concludes for Carolina.
