Red Sox fire President Dombroski and it makes me wonder if other coaches and the like have been shitcanned the season after attaining the ultimate prize

Marc Trestman was fired less than a year after leading the Toronto Argonauts to the Grey Cup.
Guys like Barry Trotz and Dick Vermeil resigned after winning a championship. And Tony LaRussa as well.

Billy Martin was let go as Yankee manager in the middle of 1978, despite the Yanks having won the World Series the previous year and being on their way (Bucky Dent) to a repeat championship that fall. I don't think that's ever happened in another sport.

Bob Lemon managed the Yanks to a WS victory in 1978 & was fired as manager
in 1979 - replaced by Billy Martin.

Not to hijack the thread but I can only imagine how good the Yankees could have been if Dick Howser didn't tell George to go fuck himself to his face at the end of the 1980 ALCS.

All parties claim it was by "mutual agreement", but how can you forget Jimmy Johnson being shitcanned 2 months after winning his second straight Super Bowl?
