I would like Rivera to stay on as the DC, but I know the chances of that are beyond slim....

 

I think he's got a great mind but is not a good head coach.

 

Assuming we could have any coach in the world, college or otherwise, who would we hire that would be available next season? 

 

Obvious former NFL head coaches that get linked with almost every job:

 

- Jon Gruden: I think he could do wonders with a QB like Cam. Plus I like the idea of trying an offensively minded head coach.

 

- Bill Cowher: a proven winner and could do a good job. 

 

- Brian Billick: did a good job at the Ravens for the most part, won a super bowl; and remember when he was the OC at the Vikings they broke the record for most points in a season, and were a good offense. 

 

- Lovie Smith: granted his offense can be dour, but he has a winning record as a HC, and could help continue this team's defense moving towards being an elite unit. 

 

A few potential coordinators looking for that first opportunity:

 

- Ray Horton: He can certainly coach a good defense. He has two super bowl rings as a coach, so he knows how to win. He might be worth a look if he can bring a good OC with him.

 

- Mike Zimmer: He's got a great pedigree in coaching up dominate defenses. He's a no nonsense kind of coach, so he might be what this team needs.

 

- Greg Roman: He's done a good job as the 49ers OC. He's worked with a dual threat Kaepernick, and would probably get the best out of Cam. 

 

- Jay Gruden: He's done a good job at the Bengals, and might be a good candidate from an offensive background. 

 

Then there are a few college candidates:

 

- David Shaw, Stanford: His record since replacing Harbaugh has been very good. He's been a coach in the NFL. He's well respected. And I think he could be one of the next college head coaches to get a chance. 

 

- Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M: Did a great job last season after replacing Sherman. His offense is NFL compatible, and his work with the dual threat Manziel would hopefully bode well for Cam. 

 

- Brian Kelly, Notre Dame: He's good head coach and tactician. 

 

- Bill O'Brien, Penn State: Proven coaching track record in the NFL, including being the QB coach and OC when Brady had his 5000 yard season. He's a good QB coach that might get the best out of Cam. He's also started well with Penn State. 

 

- Dabo Swinney, Clemson: Excellent record at Clemson. A very solid coach. I wonder, would Gettleman dare to go for a Swinney-Boyd combination  :ph34r: 

 

Overall I don't know who I want to replace Rivera. I honestly don't mind who we get, or where we get them from, as long as they build this team into a perennial play off and super bowl contender.

Great info.

Cause jerry is a control freak and a tightwad. The 2 are a lethal combo.

I wish someone would hold him accountable. He has a stadium bought and paid for by the people of Charlotte, the seats already sold out, and .10 cent beer for 9 bucks.

He loves money and control more than winning.

A GM shouldn't decide that a season is lost after a 1-3 start that includes 2 very close losses. You and I might not be very optimistic give past years, but this is year 1 for him, and he's not getting paid to blow a team up when there's still reason to think we could turn things around this year.

None of the former guys interest me at all.

The only college guy I could get behind (Shaw) isn't interested in leaving his current job.

Zimmer is my top choice. I could go with Horton. Nix on Roman or Gruden.

Tom Clements would be a better option if you want an offensive coach, but bear on mind that his roots are in a system (WCO) that doesn't suit Newton's skill set.

Also worth a look: Winston Moss.
