Gus Bradley hired as head coach in Jacksonville


Well damn.. I was hoping he would get passed over so if Rivera fails next year, he would get a look by the Panthers.

Also, that just leaves Arizona with the only vacancy.

And it leaves Ken Whisenhunt with no head coaching options.

And that may not be for long, with Arians on his 2nd day there.

And Denver just named a new OC (Adam Gase).

Wonder if Whisenhunt would be Arians' OC.

So Mr. Scot, assumming that Arians is hired in Arizona, who are some the candidates for next year?

He'd be more likely to switch jobs with Arians should Arians go to the desert. He could be a great vet sounding board for McCoy or Rivera. He could also do the same for Bradley in JAX, although that O needs more of a turnaround that SD or CAR.

From what I've read, Arians is considered the frontrunner for the AZ job, so no way he goes back to AZ to be the OC, not when he'd get paid more from his contract.

We're free and clear to interview Whis now, he's not gonna be a HC and only the Jets and Panthers need an OC (besides AZ obviously). I don't think Whis would want to go to Chicago under another offensive coach.

edit: d'oh, didn't think of the Colts needing an OC if Arians leave. So them too.

His signing back on in Arizona is one of those things I seriously doubt would happen, Only reason I'd even think it plausible is their previous working relationship in Pittsburgh. But even there, who knows if they're friends or were just coworkers?

First name that likely pops up on people's radar next year is Greg Roman since he was shut out this season. You could rightly expect Lovie Smith to be a popular option too. Ken Whisenhunt will be looking to get back in the game. Maybe Josh McDaniels as well.

If you mean the Panthers specifically, it'd depend on whether Gettleman could convince Richardson to look at something other than just defensive coordinators, though for all we know that may be his preference too.
