Black Monday is always one of the busiest days in the NFL calendar.
At the conclusion of the regular season, teams make the decision to move on or keep their head coaches.
On the most recent edition of Black Monday, the number of NFL openings continues to grow by the hour.

“There are now five NFL head coaching vacancies: #Panthers #Colts #Broncos #Texans #Cardinals,” Tom Pelissero tweeted.
There are five NFL head coaching jobs opened, although the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, and Denver Broncos have been opened after they fired their coaches during the season.
Dallas Cowboys DC Dan Quinn has already been pegged as a potential option to go to Denver, so things are moving fast.
The Houston Texans fired Lovie Smith on Sunday evening after just one year with the team in another perplexing move by the organization.
Then, Kliff Kingsbury got fired from the Arizona Cardinals on Monday despite inking a contract extension through 2027 following a playoff trip last season.
One other job rumored to come open is the Los Angeles Rams, and head coach Sean McVay has been thinking about his future with a TV move being rumored for a couple of years now.
The Las Vegas Raiders are another franchise that endured a rough season, although firing Josh McDaniels after just one year would be a tough decision to make for the front office in Vegas.
Nonetheless, that makes five NFL teams with head coach openings as of Monday morning, and there could be more decisions being announced as a flurry of changes are expected to be made in the next few days.NEXT: The Cardinals May Decide To Retain A Key Leader
