The darkhorse Candidates for HC....

Recommended Posts

Who do you think are some of darkhorse candidates are for Head Coach? We all know about McDaniels, Roman, Harbaugh, Rhule, Riley but who are some guys flying under the radar? 

Obviously pure speculation here but here are a few names to look out for in the interview process:

Brian Daboll, Buffalo Bills OC: His name has actually been mention in some threads before but not to the degree that the names above have gotten. Daboll comes from the Belichick tree as he was an assistant in New England before moving on to another championship winning team in Alabama under Nick Saban. He is highly intelligent and has put the Bills' offense in prime position and is actually making Josh Allen look decent. Considering recent reports that Carolina is looking at Caserio for the GM position and add in the fact that Carolina has several connections in Buffalo, if McDaniels somehow is not in play, don't be surprised if Daboll's name does come up.

Brian Schotteinheimer, Seahawks OC: Now I know there will be some out there who won't like this choice but Schotty is actually doing fairly well for himself in Seattle by having a top tier offense led by Russell Wilson. I think right now, Seattle is 4th in scoring and 9th in yardage and could really do wonders with Cam and CMC. Plus, his dad has ties to the area and may want to be closer here.

Don "Wink" Martindale, DC for the Ravens: More than likely Carolina will be looking at an offensive guy for the head coaching position, however, I have a feeling that Martindale will get a lot of looks once the season is done. "Wink" (as they call him) has the Ravens' defense in prime position and is producing one of the best Ravens defense that hasn't been seen since the days of Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs were there . The Ravens also run a hybrid defense and would fit well with the continuation of what the Panthers were trying to do this season. The only requirement would be for him to bring in someone who is willing to put the offense in prime position ( one possibility could be QB coach, James Urban) 

There may be more names but these are guys to keep an eye come interview time. They may be complete long shots but worth mentioning. Thoughts?

Based on Tepper's comments, the one thing I'm practically certain about is that it will be an offensive oriented coach.

More than likely that is true, however, he did not rule out the possibility of a defensive minded coach either.

Tepper left open options for both college and defensive coaches, but it really doesn't sound like they're going with either.

LaCanfora mentioned Brian Daboll as a strong possibility. He also said they're going to be "casting a wide net" but it wasn't clear whether that would just be in the initial stages or the actual interviews.

I for one am Glad that Tepper has gone on record that he wants an Offensive minded coach. It's time guys. We've had so many damn 'Defensive' Gurus in this organization that we need to think outside the box. The league itself is implementing more offensive minded thinking than Defense. Although no completely disregarding defense either. Don't get that twisted. 

 

There are only a few guy's I'd want if they decide to go Defensive Coordinator again, Ravens DC and SF DC. Those are the guys I wouldn't be mad at.

And your point is?

Please be specific...

Jim Harbaugh or Matt Rhule.

This, or Kevin Stefanski.  I love everything I’ve read about him.  Plus he’s probably learned some things from Kubiak, who was a terrific offensive coordinator

Top 5 Candidates should be:

1.Josh McDaniels    2. Kevin Stefanski     3. Matt Rhule      4. Lincoln Riley      5. Brian Dabboll 

Also look at: Greg Roman, Robert Saleh, Eric Bieniemy,  Shane Waldron (possible OC), Nick Sirianni, and  Urban Myer if he would listen.

McDaniels should not even be considered.
