These six NFL coaches got the axe based on a dismal football season with their teams.

The 2018 NFL regular season wrapped things up on Sunday with Week 17 results. That included several teams playing for playoff spots, and getting into the postseason. A number of other teams were still playing for pride or losing to get a better draft pick. However, after tough seasons, also come tough decisions and these six NFL coaches were let go by their organizations.

1

Todd Bowles - New York Jets

The Jets were hoping for Sam Darnold to lead a miraculous turnaround this season, but they ended up 4-12 after a season-ending loss. Bowles got the axe after that loss as he's spent four seasons as head coach and the team never reached the playoffs once.

Adam Gase - Miami Dolphins

Gase was with the Dolphins for free seasons, and ended up 23-25 during that time. One of those seasons saw the team go 10-6 and get into the playoffs. However, this was not a playoff season. Gase's squad was 7-9 in the AFC for 2018.
