The Billick Era comes to an end!

Report: Ravens fire Billick
PA SportsTicker
Published: Monday, December 31, 2007

The Baltimore Ravens on Monday fired coach Brian Billick, according to a report on the Baltimore Sun web site.

The move comes less than a month after Billick was assured he would return.

The Ravens have scheduled a 3:30 p.m. ET press conference.

Billick was reportedly informed of owner Steve Bisciotti's decision a day after the Ravens wrapped up a dismal 5-11 season.

According to the report, the Ravens held their team meeting at 1:30 p.m. on Monday and Billick was not at team headquarters.

Billick, 53, is the winningest NFL coach in Baltimore history and guided the Ravens to their first Super Bowl title in January 2001.

Billick compiled an 85-67 record in nine seasons, but the Ravens, who won the AFC North championship in 2006, struggled to a 5-11 mark this season, including a nine-game losing streak

Is this about water polo or skeet shooting?

In the NFL world (as in other sports organizations of late) It's "What have you done for me Lately???" That counts.

The odd thing is, Bill will be picked up by another club within a month! Hmmmm....the Browns could use a new coach!

Absolutely, good riddance. He was done when the sideline called a time out at the last possible moment, on a play when the defense sacked Tom Brady with the lead against the Patriots. He's responsible, more than anyone, for the Pats march to 16-0. He can rot in hell.
