OK, Ken, let me help you out with some reasons you were dismissed:

-Your record as the coach here was 3-20.  That is the second worst record of any coach since the merger in 1970.

-You never made adjustments to keep your quarterbacks from being killed.  20% of the games you coached here saw your QB leave the game with an injury.  Your (former) team spent the 2nd round pick on a guy in Marcus Mariota that is going to be the face of the franchise.  You were going to get him killed.

-You were terrible at making in-game adjustments.  (See above.)

-Your in-game decisions on using timeouts and challenges was really, really bad.

-Your team has ranked in the 30s in points scored both years, and you were the one calling the plays.

-You failed to take the players on your team and put them in the best places to succeed.  Instead, you blamed the players for everything and talked about how you didn't have the players you need to run your scheme.

That is just a few.  Help Ken out by listing others in the comments.
