Right now, eight NFL teams need new head coaches after a wild 24-hour stretch. Six coaches were fired, and the Cleveland Browns and Green Bay Packers already had openings.

If you're scoring at home, that is one-fourth of the league looking for a new coach. It should be a wild next few weeks.

When news of the Miami Dolphins firing Adam Gase broke earlier, Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry took to Twitter to dunk on his former coach. Turns out, Landry doesn't seem too fond of Gase, and the Dolphins actually traded the fifth-year wide receiver to Cleveland last offseason.

Some may find Landry's tweet petty, while others will think it is harmless. Either way, there is a chance he winds up regretting it soon. The reason? Cleveland is reportedly genuinely interested in potentially hiring Gase, per the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley.

Of course, the Browns just gave Landry a big contract extension before this season, and one would think they would consider his relationship with Gase before possibly hiring him.

If Gase does wind up in Cleveland, well, things will be quite awkward.
