But these guys could all be HC's within 5 years

I guess all you have to do is list every OC and DC and state that they all have HCing potential. Some of the guys you listed have zero chance of ever being NFL HC's and some will be NFL HC's.

I've been wondering this for months now:

How about Jeff Tedford? Why isn't he a head coaching candidate?

I'm not sure why he isn't more strongly considered, he's head coach material and he's a legit quarterback guru. Bobby Petrino can't hold his play sheet, how does Petrino from baby sister school Louisville get the nod from the pros before Tedford who has sent countless prospects to the pros? Tedford has done a very good job of fielding teams at Cal that aren't the most talented but are effective, plus he has a great eye for (underrated) talent.

Tedford is a college QB guru, but his guys suck in the NFL.

He should be getting a HC job soon.

Pepper Johnson ..Dean Peas. Maybe our offensive cordinator Mr. McDaniels


Pepper would be a DC first though..while Peas currently is ours

where's Norm Chow?

I think both him and Rob Ryan should become HC next year, and I'm not sold on Rex Ryan for this offseason he just seems to me like he will have an Mike Nolan type HC career.

Singletary strikes me more as head coaching material than defensive coordinator.

No Cordinators have 0 chance. If they get really lucky to cordinate an offense/defense with a ton of talent people will label them a genius and they'll get a job.

Before the Bears hired Lovie Smith they asked Tedford for an interview and he said no. That could be part of the reason why. I agree that he should get a chance if he wants it though.

he did interview for the san diego HC job. He would be a good HC just needs some quality coordinators

Mr. Stiller
11-03-2007, 08:35 PM
Ken Anderson? Seriously?

Yeah He's worked wonders with Ben Roethlisberger. But He'll have to be an OC first. I don't see it happening.

Arians as well? He's been Ok as a QB/WR coach and he's doing Ok as a OC, but he's far and away no where near HC possibility...



I'd say..

Russ Grimm, Rob Ryan, Mike Singletary, Brian Schottenheimer, Norm Chow, and Jason Garrett should be the next in line...
