I know Pittsburgh is going to need an OL coach and Offensive Coordinator (Check that: Should find one)..

But who are the best prospects for OC and DC in the league right now? Or Who looks like they could make that Step up from College?

I'll write my list a little later. I have an opinion on this since the Saints will need a DC and hopefully an OC and take the play-calling out of Sean Payton's hands.

I know this thread will be everyone posting their own team's favorite position coaches but I think this guy is legit, so I'll contribute.

Raheem Morris. Defensive backs coach. Some Bucs fans are hoping that Monte Kiffin, the Bucs legendary DC, retires soon so Raheem and step up and take his position. They fear that he is on a fast track to a HC or DC spot. He is the reason behind Tanard Jackson (a 4th round CB) already being a borderline probowl safety and Phillip Buchanon being a 2nd tier CB. His enthusiasm just seems contagious and multiple players on the defense point to his attitude when asked about chemistry.

That's who I want the Saints to pick up as their new DC.

John Garrett is the Cowboys TE coach...and every now and then you hear people talking about him. He is a guy who will probably stay in the cowboys organization as long as Jason is around...and has the inside shot at the OC job if Jason ever becomes the HC.

Yeah, last offseason I heard his name alot as a guy many people wanted for the Ravens to pick up as our head coach until Harbaugh popped up....

Someone from the college ranks:

Chris Peterson, HC of Boise State would be a fantastic OC in the NFL.

Sal Sunsieri is the Dline coach of the Panthers and since his arrival we've had one of the better lines in the league, I'm surprised he hasn't been poached yet, same with Mike Trgovac our D coord who generally has our D in the top third of the league.

Other than that I can see the reigning secondary coach of the Giants (name escapes me) as a potential DC.

Another college HC I like is former Oklahoma OC and current Houston HC Kevin Sumlin. He could be a great OC and you could interview him as a part of the Rooney Rule.

Peterson is not going to leave Boise State to be an OC in the NFL. He loves coaching in Boise. Although I've wanted him to leave for 2 years now and I've come to terms now that it's not going to happen. He's a god here in Boise....

Miami Dolphins assistant head coach / secondary Todd Bowles - The overall improved play of the Miami secondary especially of Will Allen and Jason Allen may have good reason behind it after all. Bowles came over with Sparano to Miami from Dallas and is a former NFL defensive back who does a formidable job communicating with his players. Back in ’07 he was also apparently one of the finalists for the HC position in Dallas as well.

If Spags leaves to become a HC somewhere else, I hope we promote Sheridan. I don't want a guy to be brought in from somewhere else because I want to run the same scheme. Also what do you think of Mike Waufle, our D-line coach? I think he is our best position coach on defense, but that doesn't neccesarily mean he will make a good DC. As I'v seen Sheridan mentioned more often as well, to take over if Spags leaves.

I don't know where he could go, honestly.

List of teams that will more than likely need a new coach.

St. Louis
Detroit
Cincinnati
Cleveland (big possibility, but doubtful)
Kansas City (" ")
Minnesota
Oakland
San Francisco

Of those, the only teams i could see going with a young, inexperienced guy is Detroit and Kansas City.

I think the Bears could be in line for new Coordinators on both sides of the ball. The defense has sunk into nothingness so Babich needs to go....I wish Lovie would pull a Wade Phillips and take over the defensive playcalling, see if he can manage anything with it. And Ron Turner.....agghhh....if not for Minnesota, he would probably be the most uncreative playcaller in football.

I think I'd like to see if we have someone from within to promote to DC, but I'd like to find a new OC to bring in a different scheme. Possibly someone from the college ranks? idk.....

Mike Munchak - OL

I'll answer both of these since it pertains to the same individual. It's going to be interesting to see if Dave McGinnis will be given another shot at a head coaching job. He's done a great job as an assistant coach/linebackers coach for the Titans, however, he seems to lack the strategy necessary to become a successful HC. I didn't think he was that bad in Arizona but he seems more like a great assistant than head coach. Jim Schwartz I think will be given a chance more than any other coach on the Titans staff.

If Spags leaves to become a HC somewhere else, I hope we promote Sheridan. I don't want a guy to be brought in from somewhere else because I want to run the same scheme. Also what do you think of Mike Waufle, our D-line coach? I think he is our best position coach on defense, but that doesn't neccesarily mean he will make a good DC. As I'v seen Sheridan mentioned more often as well, to take over if Spags leaves.

I love the Giants DL and think there one of the most talented and disciplined in the league. He's mostly coached DL through his carrer and his units have posted some great numbers. What concerns me about him being promoted to DC is this: 1) he's old. Sure, there are old coordinators in the NFL but most have been in that position for quite a while. 2) He's not diversified enough. Looks at Spags: he coached linebackers and the secondary while in Philly. 28 of Waufle's 31 years as a coach are as a DL coach and for me that is a big concern.

IMO, Waufle is better suited as a phenomenal position coach but nothing more.

I know Pendergast and Grimm are on a lot of people HC watch lists

I'm a big fan of Grimm but not that big of a fan of Pendergast for some reason. I think Grimm will be a HC within the year.

Rex Ryan

Defensive Coordinator; born December 13, 1962, Ardmore, Okla. Defensive end Southwest Oklahoma State 1983-86. No pro playing experience. College coach: Eastern Kentucky 1987-88, New Mexico Highlands 1989, Morehead State 1990-93, Cincinnati 1996-97, Oklahoma 1998. Pro coach: Arizona Cardinals 1994-95, joined Ravens in 1999.

I like Rex Ryan, and think he's a great DC, but I don't think his success will translate well as a HC, must like happened with his father.

Ron Rivera

Defensive Coordinator; born January 7, 1962, Fort Ord, Calif. Linebacker California 1980-83. Pro linebacker Chicago Bears 1984-1992. Pro coach: Chicago Bears 1997-98, Philadelphia Eagles 1999-2003, re-joined Bears in 2004.

I really like him as a HC candidate and think he'd work wonders in a place like St. Louis. Not so much Detroit, though.


Mike Shula

Quarterbacks; born June 3, 1965, Baltimore. Quarterback, Alabama 1984-86. No pro playing experience. College coach: Alabama 2003-06 (head coach). Pro coach: Miami Dolphins 1991-92, Chicago Bears 1993-95, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1996-99, Miami Dolphins 2000-02, joined Jaguars in 2007.

He's a long way off from being considered as a HC or even an OC for that matter. I like his run-first mentality, and his persona harkens back to the old-school days of smash mouth, but he didn't have success as a college HC. His Alabama team was known for not finishing games and regularly got their asses handed to them in the 4th quarter. Not someone I'd want coaching my team.

Josh McDainels

Offensive Coordinator/ Quarterbacks; born April 22, 1976, Canton, Ohio. Wide receiver John Carroll 1995-98. No pro playing experience. College coach: Michigan State 1999-2000. Pro coach: Joined Patriots in 2001.

He will become a HC sooner than later despite Bill Belichick wanting to keep him. I credit a lot of Bellichick and Brady's success to him esp after he made the Patriots respectable even with Jabar Gaffney as their go-to-guy one year. I think he's a more balanced version of Jason Garrett.

Brian Schottenheimer

Offensive Coordinator; born October 16, 1973, Denver. Quarterback Kansas 1992, Florida 1993-96. No pro playing experience. College coach: Syracuse 1999, Southern California 2000. Pro coach: St. Louis Rams 1997, Kansas City Chiefs 1998, Washington Redskins 2001, San Diego Chargers 2002-05, joined Jets in 2006.

Always a hot name to bring up just based on last name recognition. What concerns me is how often he has hopped around, with his longest stint being with a team for only 4 years and that was while his Dad was HC. What I like about him is that he tries to put the ball in the hands of his playmakers but this can also backfire. I'm not 100% sold on him yet until he proves to me that he can be a successful OC. He's starting to prove that, though.

Jason Garret

Offensive Coordinator; born March 28, 1966, 1966 Abington, Pa. Quarterback Princeton 1987-88. Pro quarterback San Antonio Riders (World League) 1991, Ottawa Roughriders (CFL) 1991, Dallas Cowboys 1993-99, New York Giants 2000-03, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2004, Miami Dolphins 2004. College coach: Princeton 1990. Pro coach: Miami Dolphins 2005-06, joined Cowboys in 2007.

He's going to be a HC.


Rob Ryan

Defensive Coordinator; born December 13, 1962, Ardmore, Okla. Linebacker Oklahoma State 1984, Southwestern Oklahoma State 1985-86. No pro playing experience. College coach: Western Kentucky 1987, Ohio State 1988, Tennessee State 1989-1993, Hutchinson (Kan.) C.C. 1996, Oklahoma State 1997-99. Pro coach: Arizona Cardinals 1994-95, New England Patriots 2000-03, joined Raiders in 2004.

Eh. Most people love or hate him. If he would have gone anywhere else other than Oakland I think he would have been given a chance at a HC position. He's done more with less talent than his brother, Rex. I see him as a moderately successful HC but an excellent DC.

Ken Anderson

Quarterbacks; born february 15, 1949, Batavia, Ill. Quarterback Augustana (Ill.) 1967-1970. Pro Quarterback Cincinnati Bengals 1971-1986. Pro coach: Cincinnati Bengals 1992-2002, Jacksonville Jaguars 2003-2006, joined Steelers in 2007.

He's going to have to prove a lot more to me. I'll give him a mulligan this year since Roethlisberger can't complete a pass while laying down or getting smacked harder than Jenna Jameson's ass in an adult movie. He's someone to keep an eye on but isn't a noticeable rising star.... Yet.

Clarence Shelmon

Offensive coordinator; born September 17, 1952, Bossier City, La. Running back Houston 1971-75. No pro playing experience. College coach: Army 1978-1980, Indiana 1981-83, Arizona 1984-86, Southern California 1987-1990. Pro coach: Los Angeles Rams 1991, Seattle Seahawks 1992-97, Dallas Cowboys 1998-2001, joined Chargers in 2002.

Uh. Eh. Hmm... I'm not so sure about this one.

Jim Hostler

Offensive Coordinator; born November 11, 1966, Pittsburgh. Defensive back Indiana (Pa.) 1986-89. College coach: Indiana (Pa.) 1990-92, 1994-99, Juanita (Pa.) 1993. Pro coach: Kansas City Chiefs 2000, New Orleans Saints 2001-02, New York Jets 2003-04, joined 49ers in 2005.

Hahahahahahahahahaha. Yeah. Right...


Chuck Cecil

Asst. Coach/Safeties And Nickel Backs; born November 8, 1964, Red Bluff, Calif. Defensive back Arizona 1983-87. Pro safety Green Bay Packers 1988-1992, Phoenix Cardinals 1993, Houston Oilers 1995. Pro coach: Joined Titans in 2001.

Definitely can see him getting a job as a DC somewhere in the near future, esp. with the success that the Tennessee secondary is having now.

Jim Schwartz

Defensive Coordinator; born June 2, 1966, Baltimore. Linebacker Georgetown 1984-88. No pro playing experience. College coach: Maryland 1989, Minnesota 1990, North Carolina Central 1991, Colgate 1992. Pro coach: Cleveland Browns/Baltimore Ravens 1995-98, joined Titans in 1999.

He will be given a shot as a HC some time in the near future. I like him a lot and think he'd be a very tough HC to play against.

Schwartz will make an excellent HC, and whichever team puts in the patience towards him will be rewarded. I'd expect McGinnis to take over the DC position at Tennessee, or expect Fisher to promote someone else from within.

I don't think Munchak will go anywehere, I mean the Titans should be grateful to him for churning out great lineman who come via mid round picks. If anything, probably Washburn has the best chance to make it to DC somewhere.

I hope we retain as many coaches as possible. Munchak and Washburn are two of the best position coaches in the NFL, in my opinion.

I think both stay. For whatever reason, I think Chuck Cecil will get a DC gig somewhere. Nothing but my gut is telling me that - especially if Schwartz pulls a Spagnuolo and stays. I certainly didn't see Sherman being offered OC by the Redskins last offseason.

So here's the question who would possibly be an OC to run close to this scheme...

Run game:
*Utilizes the Fullback position as both a runner and a blocker.
*Designs plays to get the best out of their players (Build the pass off the playaction and use screens/sweeps and misdirection plays to get their Speedy RB on the outside)

Pass Game:

*Build off the run but can build the run off the pass depending on opponent.
*Doesn't abandon something.
*Isn't afraid of 1/3 Step drops
*Is a "Qb's coach/Coordinator"

I know I'm looking for the perfect coordinator but even someone 70% of this good would take Pittsburghs offense to a new level

Why can't you see Oakland, a team who has broken the record for hiring the youngest head coach in the NFL three times, hiring a young guy?
Because Fassel's the only one willing to take the job.

Josh McDaniels would never interview for the Raiders job. In fact no well respected OC or DC will waste their time. Raider fans should be jumping up and down for Fassel, we are extremely lucky anyone would want to coach this disaster.

Come on now. Kiffin was an assistant offensive coordinator and scouting director in college before being Oakland's head coach. There's plenty of people who could be fasttracked into the NFL limelight in Al Davis' coaching search. Fassell is a thought, but there's no doubt that some previously unheard names will surface, and I'm sure some of them will be pretty young.

With multiple media outlets announcing that Kiffin is following his son to Tennessee, I guess we can assume Raheem is now the Bucs heir to the T2 throne.

Yeah, add the fact that you only get 1-1.5 seasons and then you're a free agent.

And with Oakland, and Al Davis, you're name will be in the news.. a lot!

Lucky for you. There was a rumor going around that if we win the Superbowl this year that LeBeau was going to retire and Pitt was supposedly going to transition to a T2... (I don't know why) but there was a rumor going around.

I would've assumed that Morris would have been Tomlins first choice for DC.
