A person familiar with the decision says the Detroit Lions have fired coach Rod Marinelli.
The firing comes on the morning after the Lions became the first team in NFL history to finish with an 0-16 record.
The person, who said the move was made Monday morning, spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because an announcement had not been made.
The Lions completed their season with a loss to Green Bay on Sunday, pushing aside Tampa Bay's 1976 season of 0-14 as the league's worst.
Marinelli won only one of his last 24 games and was 10-38 in three years after former team president Matt Millen gave the former Buccaneers assistant his first head coaching job.
