2 Lesser Discussed HC Candidates

I just wanted to showcase some of the lesser known HC candidates in a particular niche: those with Assistant HC experience, young, and in my opinion the John Harbaugh/Tomlin types. There are two in particular who I think we could very well give a look:

Gus Bradley

Considering our potential/maybe current interest in Idzik for GM, Gus Bradley DC of the Seahawks could definitely be a candidate.

Handpicked by Monte Kiffin after being an AHC for North Dakota St....Quality control and position coach type under Kiffin in Tampa who now is running that D and practices with Pete. Again, he has been an Assistant Head Coach and pretty much fills that role with the Seahawks. He is the one DC without HC experience I like.

Winston Moss

Packers Assistant HC for 5 years / Linebackers Coach

McCarthy's right hand man for 5 years who he kept from even earlier. Moss is discussed every now and again and I think would be a very interesting choice. Every little article bit I read about this guy sounds good and many analysts and people around the league think he is a future HC. I think he would be a helluva coach for Kuechly (especially) and Cam. Given his reputation, I think he could reel in a good offensive mind.

I like Bradley. The Seahawk D is just stupid. Im not willing to risk promoting a LB coach to HC. That being said, I like Shaw more and more.everyday.

Gus Bradley = Fantastic choice, would love him, listen to how Monte Kiffin sold him to Jim Mora Jr. as the Seahawks DC

"J.L., listen to me. I have got a guy here in Tampa that is one of, if not, the finest football coaches I have ever worked with. He's an A-plus. He's a once-in-a-lifetime coach. You need to talk to him."

Done miracles with Seattles D, worked wonders with what was available even despite flops like Aaron Curry, Seattle is 4th in Total Defence, and 3rd in points allowed per game would love to pair him with an innovative OC that could use Cam the way he was meant to

I'm kind of over having a DC for a HC

We need a coach that's been on offense, defense and maybe ST

I don't know about Moss. I kind of hope we leave the defensive guys alone, and choose someone with an offensive background.

no, just throwing out names

We have an owner who has only hired previous DCs so might as well showcase the lesser mentioned one's midst the Shaw, Kellys, Cowher, Reid, Dungy, Gruden talk that's not gonna happen imo

Both of these guys are viable candidates and should be part of the process.

I agree and I would prefer an offensive mind. Roman really jumps out and I think he will be pursued by multiple teams. Other than him, I'd like to see Dennison and Arians considered.

JR did not hire Acorsi so he could simply hire another DC, everything is on the table.

It would not surprise me at all if we went for a guy with more of an offensive background.
