All four of our coaches have been DCs. If that comes from Jerry, then don't be surprised if the fifth is as well.


it's practically a requirement for richardson that a head coach have a defensive background.

Not Perry Fewell or Mike McCoy, please. Chip Kelly, Jay Gruden, Bruce Arians I would all be alright with.

Jon Gruden had seven years of pro coaching experience before he got the Raiders job, including three as an Offensive Coordinator. Kelly has no NFL experience at all.

I hear what you're saying though, but I've heard it before. They said it about Spurrier too. Here's a few other names--Mike Riley, Lou Holtz, Nick Saban, Butch Davis, Bobby Petrino,

Kelly will get hyped, and get a job, and look really really bad. He can't even win the NCAA championship, how is he supposed to win in the NFL?



IMO you can't lump Saban in that convo. Was he an ass the way he left? Yeah. But he had probably the worst QB situation in the league and won more games than our current coach who people are clammoring to keep.

JR should be hands off with that part of the decision. The guy is 76 and doesn't know how to run an NFL team..it's why he's hiring a new GM. So hopefully he'll let the GM do his job.

Fair enough. He also had NFL coaching experience.

Kelly, however, does not. :)

Give me Mike Zimmer, Gus Bradley, Vic Fangio, or Greg Roman.

I just dont believe in Fewell or Arians.

Other notable honor(s) for me: Mike McCoy

At this point. I want Rivera to have one more year. People are spoiled, mainly our fan base. Because John Fox had early success, we expect the next guy to do the same. The bar was set too damn high and patience has been thrown out the window.

I woud prefer Rivera over any of those guys.

yeah Rivera's resume is better then all those options, if we are going to fire Rivera I want a clear upgrade and not another coordinator at this point we would be better off keeping Rivera one more year then highering any of them
