The Cincinnati Bengals will no longer have deal with Chad Ochocinco and his high-profile personality of bragging and calling out opposing defensive backs. But he is going to a team where having a big ego will not be tolerated.

Ochocinco has always said that he liked and respected Bill Belichick as a head coach. Well now, he’ll get to see and play for the no-nonsense coach on a regular basis.

The Bengals traded the controversial wide receiver to the New England Patriots for a fifth-round pick in 2012 and a sixth-round pick in 2013.

Ochocinco will be a part of a receiving corps of Wes Welker and Brandon Tate.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft still recalls the day that his organization traded a #1 draft choice to the New York Jets for the right to sign Bill Belichick as their head coach. He said people thought he and the Patriots were nuts.

Then Belichick goes out and is 5-11 in his first season at New England and the fans began to wonder themselves. But all of that is history as he is one of the NFL’s top head coaches.

The Patriots coach won the Associated Press 2010 NFL Coach of the Year award, the third time he has earned theĀ  honor.

Belichick, who also was selected in 2003 and 2007, trails only Don Shula, a four-time winner of the award.

The controversial Belichick led the Patriots to a 14-2 record, the best in the NFL and beat out Tampa Bay’s Raheem Morris for the award.

Belichick has four 14-win regular seasons, no other coach has accomplished that mark. His .716 career winning percentage of .716 ranks eighth which ties him with Hall of Famer Paul Brown.

He is 126-50 overall and 14-5 in the playoffs with New England.

After the recently completed NFL regular-season, the Tennessee Titans announced that head coach Jeff Fisher would be returning for 2011.

But in a mind-boggling, shocking move, the team parted ways with the popular Fisher, the franchise’s coach since 1994, when it was the Houston Oilers.

Fisher, who put in 16 years with the franchise, was on track to coach the final year of his contract and be paid $6.5 million.

There had been a power struggle between controversial quarterback Vince Young and Jeff Fisher when the coach benched him early in the season.

After the season, Titans owner Bud Adams said he was on Fisher’s side, but changed his mind this week.

Fisher, a USC alumnus and former NFL player, was promoted from defensive coordinator to interim coach with six games left in the 1994 season.

The 52-year-old Fisher, compiled a 147-126 record with the Titans and Oilers including postseason. He won four division titles and made the playoffs six times. His 1999 team, led by the late Steve McNair at quarterback, lost to the St. Louis Rams in the Super Bowl.

Fisher has coached more NFL games for one franchise than all but six Hall of Fame coaches: George Halas, Tom Landry, Don Shula, Chuck Noll, Curly Lambeau and Bud Grant. He ranks third among active coaches in career wins, behind only Bill Belichick (176) and Mike Shanahan (160) and he is 20th all-time in coaching wins.

Most Denver fans and media felt that owner Pat Bowlen had made a mistake hiring Josh McDaniels as head coach just because he was a highly-decorated assistant coach of Bill Belichick at New England.

After less than two years, the 34-year-old McDaniels is out as head coach. His record of 11-17, videotape scandal, personal blunders and the franchises worst losing times in four years prompted the firing.

Running backs coach Eric Stoudesville takes over for the final 4 games.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen was not pleased with the direction of the team.

McDaniels started out hot as the head coach in Denver, winning his first six games but ended up losing 17 of the last 22.

He becomes the third head coach who has been fired this season following Wade Phillips of Dallas and Brad Childress of Minnesota.
