I haven't seen my reasoning for voting defensive yet so I'm going to throw it out there.

Personally I want a defensive oriented coach because I want my offense to be independent of him. I think that the offense requires more solidarity in decision and as a result I want to have an OC that is in charge of offense, maybe I'm biased by the Vikings and the way that BC constantly interfering has made us horrible, but that is how I see it.

I want the coach to get the defense right and let his aides do what they are paid to do on offense. Seems to have worked well for several teams over the last couple of years such as Atlanta and Pittsburgh.

Defense is the key for me also though, if I want extra focus on an area that is it, defensive coaches also have a tendency to care more about special teams, which again, as a Vikings fan I have seen how easily they can kill a team.

I really wouldn't care which side of the ball he came from or whether he was a coordinator or not.
I want a HC who has some real emotion for the game, a great motivator who inspires people to play beyond their abilities. A man who understands how hard you have to work to be successful in this profession. A man who can delegate authority but still has the ability to make input on both sides of the ball. A HC who likes to teach and isn't too aloof to get dirty with his players if it is necessary.
I would never give my HC control over the draft, my GM would handle that aspect of the job with some input from the HC but the GM retains the last decision on any player drafted.
I would give my HC Carte Blanche in his first year and I would live with whatever record he produced as I would expect him to clean house and get rid of the deadwood. I would expect marked improvement in year 2, somewhere close to a .500 record and in year 3 I would expect a serious playoff run. Most of the great HC's have followed this pattern and I'd be watching to see if my new hire did so as well.
During the interview process, I'd be looking for an intelligent HC who realized how to build a winner and I'd ask him what his plans for the team were for the next 3 years. If his plan didn't correspond to mine in any way, it is doubtful I would hire him. I want a realist as my HC not some pie in the sky type.

I'd personally prefer a special teams coordinator as my HC, a la Harbaugh. Someone who has worked with everyone on the team, not one specific group. Also, this way, you can bring in two coordinators and let them coach.

Depends on my team 100%. I think the most ideal is an former DC for HC with a talented OC.
