Two coaches fired in 24 hours? It's happened before
We asked , and you responded. Earlier tonight we wondered if any other city had ever fired two pro sports coaches in 24 hours. The answer, it turns out, is yes.
 
Credit where it's due: A Reddit user  pointed out that Atlanta fired both the coach of the Thrashers (Curt Fraser) and Hawks (Lon Kruger) on Dec. 26, 2002. (Merry Christmas, coaches, from your owners at AOL Time Warner!)
 
Cavaliers coach  Ty Lue  was fired Sunday morning. Twenty-four hours later, the Browns announced they were firing  Hue Jackson
 
Sadly, yet fittingly, Cleveland can't even win at being the quickest to fire two pro head coaches.
