Updated Assistant Coach Options

I don't understand why it's taking so fuging long to hire a OC?

For one, a guy like Ken Wisenhunt was in play for head coaching jobs. Now it looks like he isn't getting one.

Replace Shula with Beane and we have his tweets from two weeks ago.

Ouch :(

Joe Person@josephperson

He wants it, and has a good shot at it. RT @boxemoutdave @josephpersonwhat's your thoughts on Shulas chance or desire for OC job?

Yeah...I know it's Person and all speculation, but it would be a very "Panther" move.

I don't want him, but I wouldn't be too quick to completely rule him out just yet considering he's already a step below it at the moment.

I acknowledge it's a real possibility, though I admit the fact they were quick to bring in other candidates makes me wonder how high it is on their list of options.

Possible.

Rivera seemed to indicate they were proceeding with interviews for other positions but there's been no word on when or with whom. Could conceivably have just been with internal options like Proehl and Shula.

And of course, there's the annual coaching job fair at the Senior Bowl yet to come.

Have there been any other teams showing interest in Shurmur?

My fear is that if we were the only one and our better options are soon taken, we would be left with him.

Jets have been said to have interest in both Jackson and Shurmur.

I can just imagine how well the personalities of Hue Jackson and Rex Ryan would click :lol:

Well, Kevin O'Dea is out. He followed Toub to KC and will be his assistant there too.

Bobby April is my preference for special teams anyway.

I'm not depending on our beat guys folks. For all we know they could be interviewing someone right now and they don't even know it.
