There are a lot of guys you named who great coordinators, but they dont have real ambition to be HCs, they are more Xs and Os guys and while they are great at what they do, they probably wont become HCs ever, Im talking about guys like Monte Kiffin, Jim Johnson, Greg Williams....I think the best HC prospect there is Singletary, just like guys were talking about, he has incredible leadership skills and should be able to inspire his players and get the most out of them. He would need some good Xs and Os coordinators though because he is not a master strategist like Bellichick or anything.
Bob Bratkowski (Bengals OC) has recieved attention for a HC job and I think he'll get more this year when our offense is back on track and the team is hopefully more successful but I don't think he's worthy. Our old WR coach (Hue Jackson, now OC of the Falcons) is more worthy of an eventual HC job than he is.
These are Pittsburghs DL and LB coach respectively. They have been doing nothing short of amazing in pittsburgh. Mitchell is now an Assistant Coach and frankly with the Dominant DL/LB core we've had in just the past 10-15 years is any indication of their coaching talent, I think they'd be great guys.
I think Norm Chow's career is the perfect example of doing your niche job too well and not getting promoted for it. He is excellent with young QB's and offenses, and so far, that's all teams both college and NFL have really wanted him for. He may be a great HC, but he's viewed as a specialist. I think soon though he will be given his chance.
