Dick MacPherson, Patriots
After making Syracuse a national powerhouse in the 1980s, Dick MacPherson was hired to coach the New England Patriots. He failed to turn around a team that resided in the NFL's basement and had major ownership issues (including threats of moving the team). He was fired after two years and an 8-24 record and never returned to coaching.—Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
