Obviously, on top of my list would be Herm Edwards... Didn't do well as a head coach but as DC would be a solid choice under Fox.

Dave McGinnis is a name that continues to float in the mix

DeMonte from the Eagles would bring aggression

Or any members of the Steelers staff would be good for me too!

One darkhorse candidate for me would be Chuck Pagano who is the secondary coach for the Baltimore Ravens... Look what he has done with Ed Reed this year

Sean McDermott

Secondary Coach

One of the brightest, young defensive minds in the league, Sean McDermott enters his 10th season in Philadelphia. McDermott was named secondary coach on January 28, 2008, after a successful one-year stint as linebackers coach last season.

"I don't think there are a lot of secondary coaches that are as good as Sean McDermott," Eagles head coach Andy Reid said. "He was a phenomenal linebackers coach and, really, his versatility I just think is second to none."

The linebacking group flourished under McDermott in 2007 as two youngsters – Omar Gaither (team-leading 170 tackles and 14 hurries) and Chris Gocong (92 tackles, including 7 for a loss) – progressed into full-time starters for the first time in their careers.

From 2004-06, McDermott served as the Eagles secondary/safeties coach. In 2004, he saw both of his starting safeties (Brian Dawkins and Michael Lewis) earn Pro Bowl berths for the first time in team history. Under McDermott's watch, Dawkins went on to earn two more Pro Bowl berths following the 2005 and 2006 seasons. In addition, McDermott has been credited with the development of Eagles S Quintin Mikell.

McDermott worked as the Eagles assistant secondary coach in 2003 and as the club's defensive assistant/quality control coach from 2001-02, working with the linebacker position. In all, McDermott is the longest tenured defensive assistant coach under Jim Johnson.

Under McDermott's watch, one of his players (Dawkins twice, Lewis and Gaither) has been the most productive player on defense in four out of the last five years.

McDermott originally joined the Eagles in 1998 as a scouting administrative coordinator, a position he held until being promoted to assistant to the head coach in 1999.

From 1993-97, McDermott was a safety at the College of William and Mary, earning all-conference honors in 1997, Academic all-conference honors in 1996 and 1997, and NSCA Strength and Conditioning All-America accolades. In 1998, he was the recipient of the prestigious Benjamin Ewell Award for his tremendous leadership and excellence on campus and in the community. In the spring of 1998, McDermott began his coaching career at William and Mary.

A 1993 graduate of LaSalle HS, McDermott was named All-Southeastern Pennsylvania at defensive back in 1992. An all-around athlete, he was also a national prep school wrestling champion in his junior and senior year and lettered twice in track.

In 2005, McDermott was named to the Philadelphia Daily News All-Catholic league team for standout players over the last three decades.

A native of Omaha, Nebraska, McDermott (born 3/21/74) earned a bachelor degree in finance while at William and Mary. He enjoys exercising, playing golf and is an active member of the Church. He and his wife, Jamie, and their newborn daughter, Madeline, reside in Phoenixville, PA.

Dave McGinnis is a longtime favorite of mine. he ran great defenses as the DC and head coach of the Cardinals and has been working on the staff of defensive mind Jeff Fisher since being let go from Arizona. Add in that he and Fox are acquainted from their days coaching against each other in the old NFC East.

"Acquainted" doesn't quite cover Fox and Herman Edwards though. They're old buddies and you'd have to believe Fox would want Herm here if, as expected, the Chiefs let him go. Herm's never been a DC, but he was a defensive coach and like Fox is a "player's coach". Plus, he's been a head coach, so DC should actually be a little less demanding.

Then there's Sean McDermott. No connection to Fox that I know of, but he's the "hot young name" out there now and comes from Jim Johnson's school of aggressive D in Philly.

Deep enough?

Possibly, but only if he goes to a system working underneath a defensive minded head coach.

The only downside to McDermott is that if he was to come here and change Carolina's D into a solid defense, it would only increase his chances of becoming a head coach for another team next year
