The Detroit Lions have fired coach Jim Caldwell.
Detroit made the move Monday, dismissing a coach who received a multiyear contract extension before the season.
The Lions ended their season with a 35-11 win over to Green Bay. They went 9-7, their third winning record in four years.
Detroit met relatively modest expectations this season, but raised hopes by starting with a 3-1 record before fading.

Raiders fire Del Rio after 3 seasons
Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio has been fired after a disappointing season.
Del Rio said owner Mark Davis told him after the team's season-ending 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday that he would not be retained as coach in Oakland. Del Rio had signed a four-year contract extension last February after Oakland ended a 13-year playoff drought with a 12-win season last year.
The Raiders followed that up with one of the most disappointing seasons in the NFL. Oakland went 6-10 for the second biggest one-season drops in wins in franchise history.
Pagano, Colts part ways
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts fired coach Chuck Pagano on Sunday, less than two hours after they ended a 4-12 season with a 22-13 victory over Houston.
Team owner Jimmy Irsay made the announcement in a statement, wishing Pagano and his wife well in the future.
The move comes after Indy missed the playoffs for the third straight year, the team's longest postseason drought since a seven-season absence from 1988-94.
With Andrew Luck missing the entire 2017 season, Indy never had a chance. The Colts wound up with their first losing season since 2011, their second since 2002, and the first in Pagano's six seasons as coach.
Pagano finished his first head coaching job with a 56-46 record, including a 3-3 mark in the playoffs.
