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.
