Default What Kind of Coaching Background Do You Want?

I was thinking about this today. When you are looking for a new coach for a team, do you want one with a defensive background (D Coordinator, DBs coach, LBs coach etc..), offensive background (O Coordinator, WRs coach, RBs coach etc..), former college head coach, or a former NFL head coach?

Seeing as college to NFL transitions don't work out very well most of the time, and the reason some coaches are former head coaches means they got fired (could have retired, but still they have been out of the game a bit), and as a defensive guy, I'd go with a Defensive coordinator, and young coordinators turned coaches have been quite successful lately, Harbaugh, Sparano, etc.

Really? Weis sucks, Crennel sucks, Mangini is w/e, and we'll have to wait and see about Daniels. Bellichick disciples don't have a good track record right now.

wow, i voted defensive guy, but i certainly didn't expect the poll to be this one sided. I'd say a former HC, but it really depends on which head coach it really is...there are some i would like, and many i wouldn't. I'm a defense first guy, so if a DC is in the discussion, he is probably doing a pretty darn good job of it. This is part of the reason i'm so pumped about Rex Ryan

Neither Harbaugh or Sparano have ever been defensive coordinators...

Personally I'd prefer a DC but I like former Oline coaches aswell.

I like the idea of a defensive guy being the HC and hiring a talented OC to have complete control of the offense, minus calling dumb plays like Sean Payton and Jason Garrett have a tendency to do.

In the poll it says, D Coordinators, DB coaches etc. and I brought up Harbaugh and Sparano to prove that inexperienced coaches have been very successful as of late, not to bring up examples of D Coordinators.

Depends what team. If I'm putting together a coaching staff for an expansion team then I would take a former head coach because of how young the team would be and the expierience brought in by a former head coach. I'd prefer for him to be defensive minded, though.

If I was looking for a head coach for the Packers then I would stay on the offensive side of the ball.

I would interview a handful of both, and ask them questions based on their past, and even Xs and Os. Perhaps I would show them cutups of a game and ask them what they would call in certain situation based on the call sheet.

I also want see their rules and regulations and how they conduct practice. So give me your practice schedule as well. Basically I want to see how organized they are with everything as well as their attention to detail. I want to know how they will utilize their roster, and what coaches, in terms of style fit their vision.

The interview is where the job is won. That's why you see 4 hour interviews and such. I want to make sure the guy is a perfect fit, and honestly could careless what side of the ball he is from. Also, depending on the market, he has to be able to handle the media well. I know in the NY market that is huge. Mangini was cold to the media and that hurt him as he stayed here. Ironic because he was the toast of the town his first year. But they have to be able to work the media just like the media will work them. So charisma is a huge plus in a big market.

Ideally, give me a great defensive minded head coach and have him hire someone experienced to run the offense.

i think it really depends on the guys around.

If im the Steelers or the Eagles i wouldnt take a defensive guy, just let those geniuses do what they can. (Obviously kinda weird with Tomlin but meh)

Keep in mind that at this point you're a general manager..

It really depends, I wouldn't say its that simple.

I want a guy who emphasizes trench play, toughness on both sides of the ball, and smashmouth football. A guy with leadership and accountability, and discipline.

That could be a defensive guy, or an offensive guy. Its more about personality and identity than it is Xs and Os really.

Yeah, well both coaches and GM's use that method to interview. I had a coach on my staff get interviewed to another position and said they basically ask all this stuff. It varies with GMs of course, I mean we all are human and have different styles, but usually the 4 hour interviews, if thorough ask and go over everything.

If I get to be a HC at any level, that's how I would pick my coaches. I mean I would tailor it of course, but I'd keep it similar. If I was a GM I would make it hard and let the person's interview dictate it. I want to know how organized the coach can be.
