Man that Jim Harbaugh is having a real tough time learning to coach too.


Harbaugh has been a head coach at the college level for years. Rivera has never been a head coach, but a coordinator or specialist.

Rivera is best suited as a DC in a 3-4 scheme imo

Way too early, but just for the record Mike Zimmer is the only name in this thread I could see taking seriously.

Biggest issue with Rivera right now is his not dancing with the one that brought him. He got the job for being aggressive. Now he seems like he's lost his nerve.

Only way Rivera gets fired is if we finish worse than last year and look really bad doing so. J.R. wants Cam to want to stay and he's going to worry if we continue to struggle on defense and special teams without any improvement. If we finish 6-10/7=9 Rivera stays, but heads into '13 on the hot seat.

That said, IF we're looking for a new coach next offseason I've always liked Bengals D.C. Mike Zimmer as a HC candidate. Not crazy about the idea of a retread like Gruden/Cowher, but I could get behind it if it came to that.

Vic Fangio (49ers D.C.) is going to be a hot name soon as is Jay Gruden. Cardinals D.C. Ray Horton as well. There's also a good chance Rex Ryan gets fired from the Jets; he might be good with an actual legit QB like Cam.

Packers O.C. Tom Clements could be a good get; he's also been a top-flight QB coach for years now. Also, dare I say Packers LB coach... Kevin Greene?

Ray Horton is a name I could see. He's been a rising star since his Steeler days. And the job he did against New England certainly got him some notice.

Still have to say though that, barring a total collapse, this discussion is moot.

some of you wouldn't be happy if Lombardi himself was our head coach.
