Breaking News: Gaints head coach Brian Daboll recently declared that he would shortly be retiring due to…

Head coaches and managers who were dismissed soon after winning a championship

In sports, no job is forever. Coaches are hired to be fired and no matter what kind of success you have at a franchise, the only certainty is that one day they will be replaced. Hopefully, you get to do so on your own terms.

For most franchises, winning a championship is a defining moment that hangs banners from the rafters, fills trophy cases with hardware, and coaches get honored with statues in front of the stadium or streets named after them. Some get revered to the point of legend (Ditka!) yet some see their honeymoon end rather quickly. There have been plenty of coaches and managers who didn’t last long after they brought their teams to the top of their sport.

It happens in a variety of ways. Some coaches have a toxic relationship with management that forces them out. Some struggled to recapture the glory days and were quickly let go. Sometimes outside forces bear down on the situation and force a move. It recently happened in the NBA when the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks fired their coaches after winning championships just a few years earlier. It can sour very quickly.

Here are several times a head coach was let go within four seasons from bringing their franchise a championship.Brenly left the broadcast booth to take over as the Arizona Diamondbacks’ manager in just their fourth year of existence. Behind pitchers Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling, the D-backs beat the New York Yankees in Game 7 of the World Series, ending the Yankees’ three-year run as champions. Arizona would win the NL West the following season but were swept by the Cardinals in the division round. After a 29-50 start to the 2004 season, Brenly was fired and replaced by Al Pedrique. He went back into broadcasting and is currently working for the Diamondbacks.
