Lane Kiffin

Oakland Raiders

After Kiffin ended his first season as Raiders head coach with a 4-12 record, it was reported that owner Al Davis gave him a letter of resignation to sign. The drama continued through the summer, and finally Kiffin learned through a team executive that he would likely be fired after Oakland's Week 3 game against Buffalo. Davis acted the next week, firing Kiffin after a 1-3 start to the season.
