Dan Reeves Fired

The Atlanta Falcons notified head coach Dan Reeves that he would be released at the end of the 2003 season. With one year left in his contract, Reeves then asked to be relieved of his contract immediately - a request that was granted. Born in Rome, Georgia, Reeves became Falcons head coach in 1997. At the time of his release, he was in his 23rd consecutive season as a head coach - the longest tenure of any active coach in the NFL.
