He's a dickbag, but he can write a pretty good column. Here it is:

He only did college coaches and current assistants (no retreads)


[quote]5. I think these sound like the top five college coaching candidates for NFL head coaching jobs, per chats with front office people in the last two weeks (in order):

1. Chip Kelly, Oregon
2. David Shaw, Stanford
3. Brian Kelly, Notre Dame
4. Kirk Ferentz, Iowa (even coming off the bad season at Iowa, he's well-respected in the NFL)
5. Doug Marrone, Syracuse.

I didn't include Bill O'Brien of Penn State because (and call me naïve) I can't see him preaching love of, and loyalty to, Penn State, and then leaving after 12 months. But never say never in this business.

6. I think these sound like the top 10 NFL assistants who will get sniffs for head coaching jobs in the league next year (in order):

1. Mike McCoy, Denver offensive coordinator
2. Mike Zimmer, Cincinnati defensive coordinator
3. Vic Fangio, San Francisco defensive coordinator
4. Perry Fewell, Giants defensive coordinator
5. Dirk Koetter, Atlanta offensive coordinator
6. Dave Toub, Chicago special teams coordinator
7. Bruce Arians, Indianapolis interim head coach/offensive coordinator
8. Ray Horton, Arizona defensive coordinator
9. Kyle Shanahan, Washington offensive coordinator
10. Clyde Christensen, Indianapolis quarterbacks coach.[/quote]

Not a fan of Brian Kelly. He's scummy. Reminds me of Bobby Petrino. I honestly don't think his ND defense has much to do with him.

I would absolutely love Fangio but I don't think he is interested in HC.

I would turn into a TruCatzFan type poster using misplaced all-cap words and explanation points after everything.

Count O'Brien from PSU out.

Although he did great things with a very talent depleted team this year and turned McGloin into a damn good QB, he has a $20 million buyout clause in his contract. He ain't going anywhere.
