No job security in Carolina?

All would be fools to come here because Rivera is already on the hot seat. There a lot of pressure to perform as a player/coach in the NFL already.

Why come to a place that is expecting a lot right out the gate and if you fall short- there is a good possibility you will be looking for work again next year?

I'm now in the mindset that we might as well just get rid of Rivera and let Getty put together a coaching staff from the ground up. No?

I'm probably over-reacting, but I totally understand why Toub would go to the Chiefs.

We always seem to miss the bullseye on staff decisions. It's the scourge of this franchise.

Hue Jackson would be a moron to give up a chance coordinating an offense with Cam Newton so that he could continue working as the assistant Defensive backs coach for the Bengals or whatever gig he currently has. Whisenhunt doesn't have a ton of job security at the time being, having just been fired.

Besides. Every NFL coach is one bad season from being on the hot seat. It's just the nature of the business now. Coaches are used to it.

It's a gamble for guys to come here, but if it pays off; it could be huge.

At the same point though anybody who came here would get to coach Cam Newton and an offense that finished twelth last season despite a disaster of an offensive line. It would be a risk to join the staff of a coach on such a hot seat, but it also is a hell of an opportunity to earn job security for a long time and possibly put oneself in position to make the jump to HC in the not too distant future.

Because these guys like a challenge and thrive under those conditions. It's like business world where executives are given opportunities to turn around a struggling company and department. Competitive people like challenges and like to reap the rewards of tacking such situations.

Coordinators are usually working on a year to year basis to begin with.

This is a 10 win team as it stands now with a potentially explosive offense. OC candidates will jump on the chance.

There is no job security anywhere in the NFL. The Carolina job is as good as any. Why do you think there are so many OC's are looking for a job now. Think about it, when Rivera came here, everyone was saying with a rookie QB it would probably take something like 3 years. However because we had some success and Cam was so impressive, he timetable got shortened to the point where he was almost out of job.

Hurney as much hate as he gets (I am not a huge fan myself), will probably be fired after drafting both the offensive rookie of the year, and quite possibly the defensive rookie of the year. Yes he has made some questionable cap decisions, but how much of that was based of mandate from the owner? What if some of the contracts were made a year earlier thus mitigating the cap hits?

People want results based on wins. If we don't make the playoffs next year Rivera is fired pretty much. That could be said for anyone. In 2010, Raheem Morris was coach of the year, in 2011 he was fired. Look at the coach of Auburn, I bet his staff was saying they were golden after winning the national championship (although Malzan came back ). There is no safety in pro, hell not even pro sports. There is no safety anywhere unless you are the owner.

If they do their job I highly doubt they will be fired.

There is also the possibility of being promoted if Rivera is canned. Should that happen, the new HC would inherit a much better roster than the average new HC.

depends...

You have Cam now in year 3. Better odds of coming here and winning in 2013 or righting the ship in Clev in two?

If you are looking for a career that has job security you should not be an NFL coach or coordinator
