The Fort Worth Star pointed out that Rob Ryan was fired two years into a three year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, and that the defensive coordinator appears to be the one blamed for the team losing the most yards in the team's history.

And for those who think that sports players are the only ones getting the axe in 2013; think again. ESPN has fired Rob Parker, although the sports news leader issued a statement saying that "Rob Parker's contract expired at year's end," but the company spokesperson did acknowledge that when they "evaluated our needs and his work, including his recent RG3 comments," that they determined not to renew him.
