Would you hire this guy as your head coach and pay him huge bucks?

So if I told you that a very successful college coach had never played in the NFL or even in college, had no experience as a coordinator or position coach in the NFL and prior to his current job coached at John Hopkins, Columbia, and New Hampshire. Would you be in a sure fire to hire him?

I wouldn't. People are so crazy about the read option and uptempo offense of Oregon that they forget that their coach has no NFL experience of any kind and has coached a good D-1 program for 4 years.

Name me one successful college coach who didn't play in college or in the pros with no NFL experience who was instantly successful in the NFL as a head coach.

I would ask you for more information about the guy you're describing before I said whether I wanted him or not.

You can't sum up a coach in a few paragraphs well enough to make a decision.

Name me one college head coach with his type of resume who was successful in the NFL as a head coach right off the bat.

I have my doubts about him too, but he does seem to be very well regarded in NFL circles (by coaches, GM's, etc.). That makes me take him a bit more seriously.

JR/new GM should probably at least talk to him to form their own impressions.

Harbaugh never played at Michigan or for the Bears, Colts, Ravens, Chargers, Lions and even the Panthers? What time dimension do you live in?

Looking at how he runs his practice is not the same thing as saying he would be great head coach. As I said, then hire his offensive coordinator as your coordinator. None of this means he will be a great HC. Rivera has a history of being a great defensive coordinator. People emulated his work but does it make him a great head coach??
