Last week, Durant High School head football coach Byron Cordell was informed that his services at DHS in Durant, Oklahoma were no longer needed after 10 seasons with the school.

In other words, he was fired.

Instead of sulking in to clean out of his office, he and his family took some friendly advice from Taylor Swift, and "Shake it Off" with their own own parody video of the family packing up his belongings to the Swift song. The video quickly went viral.

Durant went 3-17 over the last two seasons. But Cordell holds no grudges toward the school.

'We just weren't successful enough in the last few years," Cordell told the Durant Democrat. "We didn't win enough games. It's part of the profession. I'm disappointed, but I understand.

"I had a great time in my nine years here in Durant. It was an honor and privilege to coach in my home town. I would like to thank everyone for the support, not just me, but the kids in the program. I had a lot of good times."
