Generally, in all walks of professional life, the last thing you want to feel after having a meeting with someone is confused. That's really the only point of a meeting. To lessen any confusion you might have. That's my working theory, at least. But then I've never been in a meeting with Todd Haley.
In one way, it's easy to see why the Chiefs and Dolphins fired their head coaches on Monday. Hefty losses in Week 14 served as the final straw in each case, as the two teams lost by a combined 43 points on Sunday. Both Kansas City's Todd Haley and Miami's Tony Sparano were likely to receive the boot out of their roles after the season ended, so their Monday morning dismissal merely put them out of their misery a few weeks before expected.
