Dan Reeves Fired

Most surprising thing about this is Dan's age (57), I thought he was a lot older than that.

From ajc.com | Falcons | Dan Reeves out:

"With one of the worst seasons of Dan Reeves' 23-year career as an NFL head coach winding down, Falcons owner Arthur Blank released his head coach from his contract Wednesday morning.
The Falcons are 3-10, with three games left in the season. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who followed Reeves as head coach in Denver after Reeves' contract was not renewed there following the '92 season, will finish the season as Atlanta's interim coach. Phillips also was a head coach in Buffalo, and recommended by Reeves to Blank as interim coach.

Reeves and Blank are expected to speak at a 10:30 a.m. press conference at team headquarters. Reeves also attended the press conference after he was fired by the Giants following the 1996 season."
