Who is likely to be our assistant coaches for LBers, DBs, and DL?

Any ideas?

I can really see H.Edwards here as a db's coach..... I think that would a be a good move for the Panthers.

also, Tim Krumrie as another option on the DL. It's a few days old so excuse any out of date info. I'm not writing all that again.

[I](might be merge worthy, depending on the mods)[/I]

My current thoughts, with Meeks now in the fold...

On DL, please, anyone but John Teerlink :nonod:

I'd be okay with Board, Krumrie or Denny Marcin. If you could get a motor like Krumrie had into a player with Peppers athletic ability, in theory you'd have a nearly unstoppable player. Moot point with Peppers leaving, of course. I suppose even Crennel is possible if he doesn't stay in Cleveland or get a DC gig. Shame all this happened too late for us to make a run at Rod Marinelli.

Linebackers? I was a big fan of McGinnis for DC. If he doesn't get a gig elsewhere I wonder if he'd take a lateral move. Haluchak has the Fox connection, of course. Venturi wouldn't be a bad hire, and he'd know the NFC South well enough. Also just recently noticed that Dat Nguyen had become a coach (assistant LB coach for the Cowboys). Don't know enough about him as a coach but he was a smart player.

In the secondary? Herm would be nice but I don't expect it. Gantt suggested former Fox assistant Johnnie Lynn as a possible. Former Panther DB and coach Brett Maxie was of late with the Cowboys but I don't know his contract status. I do know that former Cowboys DC Brian Stewart was a DB coach, but I think Boltergeist had a negative opinion of his time with the Chargers.

As an aside, When they were predicting the coaching hires, Yasinskas said that the process would be sloooooooowwww. Gantt said it would be over by next Sunday. With Meeks hired one day into the week, I'd give round one in the prediction bowl to Gantt.

I figured it would be fast for the DC, the other coaches will just fall in place once meek gets back in NC and starts his talks with fox. I'd expect at least two of the positions to be filled by the end of the week or early next week at the latest.

Reasonable.

If they get it done this week, then you can assume they had no interest in anyone from the staff of the Cards or the Steelers (despite the 'emulation' talk).

Dunno about the DL, or LB, but I'm thinking Herm Edwards would be a good fit, with him having ties to both Meeks and Fox.
