View Full Version : yet again... Who is the next Head Coach?

10-01-2009, 11:35 AM
Kevin Gilbride, New York Giants Offensive Coordinator
Was rumored to be in the running for the job last year.

Jim Fassel, UFL Coach
Fassel has recently told the media he has not spoken with the Raiders as of 1/19/10

Jim Harbaugh, Stanford Head Coach
Probably Al's #1 guy but he won't take the job.

Mike Leach, formerly of Texas Tech
Profootballtalk.com has heard that Mike Leach, formerly of Texas Tech, is a candidate for the Raiders' head coaching job.

Hue Jackson, Ravens QB Coach
Rumored to be interviewing for OC job but could get a head coaching interview.

Marc Trestman, Montreal Alouettes Head Coach
Another favorite of Al's.

Winston Moss, Green Packers LB coach
Interviewed last year, could be back again.

Rob Ryan, Cleavland Browns DC.
Ryan told the media, Hell Ya! I'm interested in the Raiders job, if it opens.

I can't believe people want to coach for the Raiders, while Al Davis is around.

10-01-2009, 01:54 PM
If Cable gets fired, I have a feeling Fassell will be our coach

10-01-2009, 07:58 PM
Hopefully we keep Gilbride around for whoever the new coach is....if not then we might as well give up on Russell. We're doing what the 49er's did with Alex Smith, but with a lazier QB.

10-02-2009, 01:03 AM
Plz dont take Harbaugh! He is saving Stanford

10-02-2009, 02:25 PM
We have Gilbride??? Really? I dont even know who our coordinators are....

I have been doing some research, looking around at other teams coaching staffs, etc. and I came across David Lee the Miami Dolphins Quarterbacks coach, check him out.

this is from miamidolphins.com

David Lee is entering his second season as part of the Dolphins’ coaching staff in 2009. He joined the team following a one-year stay at the University of Arkansas (2007), where he ran the offense and tutored the quarterbacks as the team posted a regular season record of 8-4 and went on to appear in the Cotton Bowl. Following the 2007 season, he had assumed a similar role at Ole Miss under Head Coach Houston Nutt before joining the Dolphins’ staff on January 10, 2008.

In 2008, Lee was charged with preparing Chad Pennington for the starting role despite the fact that Pennington was not signed until the day of the Dolphins’ first preseason game. Pennington went on to earn NFL Comeback Player of the Year accolades as he started all 16 regular season games and led the NFL with a completion mark of 67.4 percent. His passer rating of 97.4 ranked second in the NFL and was the second-best figure both in Dolphins history and of his career. His 3,653 yards passing represented the top figure of his NFL career. In addition to his work with Pennington, Lee was largely responsible for employing the Dolphins’ ‘Wildcat’ offense. Out of this formation, the Dolphins scored eight touchdowns and amassed 580 yards of total offense, a 6.4-yard average per play.

In 2007, Lee presided over a Razorbacks offense that averaged 38.8 points per game and 457.4 yards per contest in the regular season, figures that ranked 12th and 18th nationally, respectively, and were school records. The running game in 2007 ranked fourth nationally, as it averaged 286.5 yards an outing and 6.0-yards per attempt led by Darren McFadden, who amassed 1,830 yards and 16 touchdowns on 325 attempts. As a team, Arkansas threw for 1,928 yards with 24 touchdown passes and only 10 interceptions. The 2007 season marked Lee’s third stint at Arkansas, having also coached the fullbacks and quarterbacks there from 1984-88 and the quarterbacks from 2001-02.

Lee’s first NFL coaching position came with the Dallas Cowboys in 2003, when he served as the team’s offensive quality control coach. He added the title of quarterbacks coach for the 2005 season. In Lee’s four years in Dallas, three different Cowboys quarterbacks threw for 3,000 yards in a single season, while a fourth, Tony Romo, went from being an undrafted college free agent in 2003 to a starter in 2006 and was selected to the Pro Bowl.

Overall, Lee possesses 29 years of experience at the collegiate level, including five as a head coach, when he served in that role at Texas-El Paso from 1989-93. In Lee’s collegiate coaching career, nine of his former quarterbacks were either drafted or signed as free agents in the NFL following their collegiate stints. Lee got his start in the coaching profession tutoring the quarterbacks and receivers at Tennessee-Martin from 1975-76. A one-year stint as quarterbacks coach at Vanderbilt (1977) preceded a five-year run in the same role at Ole Miss, from 1978-82. He moved on to head up the offense at New Mexico in 1983 before embarking on his initial stint at Arkansas. Over that five-year period with the Razorbacks (1984-198, Arkansas compiled a composite record of 45-15-1 and appeared in a bowl game all five years, including an Orange Bowl and a Cotton Bowl. That success helped catapult him to the head coaching position at Texas-El Paso in 1989. After five seasons in that post, he became offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Rice University from 1994-2000. He returned to Arkansas in 2001, where for two years Lee tutored future NFL players Matt Jones and Tarvaris Jackson during their first two collegiate seasons, before taking on his first NFL coaching role, with the Cowboys in 2003.

A three-year letterman as a quarterback at Vanderbilt (1972-74), Lee was the team captain and the most valuable player as a senior in 1974 when he led the Southeastern Conference in passing. That same year, he helped the Commodores to a record of 7-3-2, including a 24-10 upset win over No. 5-ranked Florida. In Lee’s final two years there, Dolphins Executive Vice President of Football Operations, Bill Parcells, served as Vanderbilt’s defensive coordinator. Lee earned his degree in history from Vanderbilt. A native of Dexter, Mo., he attended Woodham High School in Pensacola, Fla. Lee and his wife, Lynne, have two daughters, Dana and Shannon, and two sons, Brian and Jordan.

Seems like to good of a pick up, I say we give Art Shell another try!!!!!!

10-06-2009, 12:50 AM
If it can get McFadden to produce like he is capable of, then it'd be the right move, and we'd be a much better team because of it.

10-06-2009, 12:52 AM
Why havent we ran any wildcat this year? Thats another way our offence could get more yards

10-06-2009, 12:57 AM
Our offense really is vanilla; that reverse run for DHB is something we should've attempted earlier in the season. Everyone is quick to blame Russell, but the playcalling has been brutal.

10-06-2009, 01:47 AM
Idk why we dont use the guy that popularized the wildcat in his days in Arkansas and run it.

10-06-2009, 01:56 AM
also Chad Pennington is a free agent, that's right.

David Lee for Head Coach
Chad Pennington for QB
Draft OT Russell Okung

and McFadden runs wild, this is my plan. :)

Easy to blame Russell when that fat slob makes 60mil and comes late to practice and claps and laughs when they are getting shut out has no drive to inspire his team like a leader should regardless of the situation! Its also very easy to blame the coaching staff when your starting QB cant comprehend a ******* coloring book! He should take his *** looking mohawk back to the bayou....Russell can go **** him self that lazy turd!

As for Al davis he should scoot his wheelchair into on coming traffic!

01-09-2010, 09:44 AM
Marc Trestman is an option but whats funny is Marc coached Gannon and they have nothing but good things to say about each other, would Al really hire a guy that would probably would like to have Gannon on his staff?

Al may have shot myself in the foot with his Gannon bashing.

Out of Fassel, Gilbride and Marc Trestman I would take Trestman in a second.


01-09-2010, 10:28 AM
Harbaugh already said he won't leave Stanford for nothing.

I don't mind the offense when the O-line is playing well.

I really would like a defensive guy to help develop the young talent we have on that side.

01-09-2010, 11:07 AM
lol. Giants' fans refer to Kevin Gilbride as Kevin Killdrive. priceless nickname xD.`

01-09-2010, 02:03 PM
I want David Lee QB Coach for the Dolphins. He brought the wildcat to them and with our skill set of players it would work perfectly.

I would hire him as OC (we currently don't have one).

Sorry thats what I meant, keep Cable as the HC and let Lee come in as the OC and play caller

01-09-2010, 07:52 PM
I'm a fan of keeping the coaching staff pretty much as is. I think the team played fairly well over the last 1/2 of the season. We managed a decent record while playing against the best division in football in the crossover. I think you will see the offense take a big step forward next year with a little bit of OL help through the draft/FA and with more consistent QB play (whoever that may be....they will be better than Jamarcus)

01-19-2010, 01:09 AM
A small part of me just wants to sign Mike Leach to see what happens. Because, **** it, we're not going to hire anyone I like anyway.

Jim Harbaugh or Jon Gruden would the perfect fits.....but Al Davis is an old fool and shell of his former self.

So if Cable doesn't stay, they will hire some lousy old retread like Fassel, Gilbride, or reach for Trestman.

However, Im hearing a stealth candidate is Saints RB coach/assistant OC Aaron Kormer. He is a former Gruden assistant with the Raiders and Bucs who has some upside.

01-20-2010, 07:05 PM
I still think that Cable will be the coach next year. However, if Al decides to go in another direction I think Marc Trestman would be a good pick. He was extremely well liked in Montreal by both players and fans. He has a bit of an edge to him that I think would fit in well with the organization.

01-21-2010, 10:57 AM
i'm starting to think Cable will stay but Al will hire an OC and might even make Cable dump the zone-blocking scheme. Al isn't a fan i hear.

01-21-2010, 01:38 PM
Which means he will want big olinemen... Anthony Davis
