The veteran NFL coach is not happy with the Worldwide Leader.

ESPN has let go of some big NFL names as part of the company's layoffs.

This week, we learned that lovable NFL reporter John Clayton had been laid off by the company, joining fellow veteran NFL insider Ed Werder, who announced that he was out at ESPN a couple of weeks ago.

This doesn't sit well with one of the most-veteran coaches in the NFL - Wade Phillips.

Phillips, the defensive coordinator for the Rams and a coach in the league since 1976, called out ESPN on Twitter.

"Ed Werder and now John Clayton-what can ESPN be thinking letting go 2 of the best at what they do and 2 great guys," he said.

ESPN's NFL coverage is certainly going to look different next season.
