Black Monday rolls on as one NFL team just fired all three of its coordinators, but is keeping its head coach. The Atlanta Falcons have reportedly fired offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel and special teams coach Keith Armstrong, according to Adam Schefter.

The writing was on the wall for Sarkisian all season long as the offense struggled to find its rhythm. Atlanta's defense also struggled to stop anyone all season long as the Falcons finished near the bottom in yards allowed per game and points scored against per game.

Here's more from Schefter.

Dan Quinn remains as the team's head coach despite the moves around him. Atlanta finished in the top-10 in most offensive statistical categories thanks in large part to a suspect defense.

The offensive coordinator position will be highly coveted as coaches look to work with Matt Ryan and a bevy of offensive weapons.

Stay tuned.
