Rivera: Coached alongside Rivera for four years with the Chargers


Al Saunders, Senior Offensive Assistant, Raiders

Coryell: Worked directly under Don Coryell in his first NFL job, took the reins from him as Chargers head coach just a few years later

Rivera: No direct connection, but has coached against him with the Raiders a


Ken Zampese, QB Coach, Bengals

Coryell: The son of Norv Turner's mentor, Ernie Zampese

Rivera: Just missed; left the Eagles in 1999, the same year Rivera came aboard

Rivera: Another near miss; left the Chargers before Rivera joined


Hue Jackson, Assistant Coach, Bengals

Coryell: Was on the Redskins staff under Coryell disciple Joe Gibbs

Rivera: Coached against him while with the Raiders

If we don't get Turner, my first choice would probably be John Ramsdell, but Al Saunders and Ken Zampese would be up there too.

Rivera will probably go the safe route here since he doesn't have a lot of room for error next year. Pick someone he knows personally and roll with it.

If I had ten solid hours to google these connections, I still wouldn't know half of what mr scot knows.

Al Saunders is definitely not crap.

I think there are some decent options other than Turner, but Turner would be the most obvious.
