A basic look at some potential offensive coordinator options, their connections to the Coryell system and to Panthers head coach Ron Rivera.


Norv Turner, Former Head Coach, Chargers

Coryell: Mentor was Coryell disciple Ernie Zampese

Rivera: Hired Rivera in San Diego; Rivera considers him a good friend and hired his son for the Panthers


John Ramsdell, QB Coach, Chargers

Coryell: Has worked under some of the best known Coryell system coaches, specifically Norv Turner, Mike Martz and Cam Cameron.

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


Cam Cameron, former OC, Ravens

Coryell: Long time Coryell system coach

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


Bob Bratkowski, QB Coach, Jaguars

Coryell: Coryell proponent who, similar to Mike Martz, tends to like a wide-open approach

Rivera: no direct connections found


Charlie Joiner, WR Coach, Chargers

Coryell: Both played and coached in the Coryell system with the Chargers

Rivera: Joined the Chargers coaching staff a year after Rivera did

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.

Al Saunders is definitely not crap.

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

Whisenhunt's a Steelers guy. They run Erhardt-Perkins. It's an offshoot of Coryell but not quite the same system.

You'd probably like Bratkowski then.

He incorporated spread elements when he was running the Bengals offense.

Mr. Scot, thank you for all you hard work lately. I like to see this stuff that I would never know about other wise. You've been very busy lately.

I think Rivera goes with the guy tht gives him the best chance to still be employed this time next year.

And cross off Turner, fiery prophet posted in the not confirmed thread that it has now been confirmed he's going to Cleveland.
