The only downside to McDermott is that if he was to come here and change Carolina's D into a solid defense, it would only increase his chances of becoming a head coach for another team next year

Thought of that. An even bigger risk given the league's penchant for hiring youngsters these days.

Edwards isn't as likely to get another shot as a head coach since he did so poorly in his previous opportunities.

McGinnis, likewise, has been there and hasn't been on anyone's head coaching radar for a while.

McDermott would be the hot guy, but if you're looking for someone more likely to be long term, Edwards and McGinnis are the best fits.

I heard he was in town tomorrow.:angelsad2:

My sources say that they saw Marty Hurney picking him up personally at the airport, just a short time ago.

Who else is there to look at other than McDermott, McGinnis, and Edwards?

Mark Carrier of Baltimore?

Ray Horton of Pittsburgh?

Perry Fewell of Buffalo? (He is from Gastonia)

Joe Woods of Minnesota?

Sean McDermott

Secondary Coach

One of the brightest, young defensive minds in the league, Sean McDermott enters his 10th season in Philadelphia. McDermott was named secondary coach on January 28, 2008, after a successful one-year stint as linebackers coach last season.

"I don't think there are a lot of secondary coaches that are as good as Sean McDermott," Eagles head coach Andy Reid said. "He was a phenomenal linebackers coach and, really, his versatility I just think is second to none."

The linebacking group flourished under McDermott in 2007 as two youngsters – Omar Gaither (team-leading 170 tackles and 14 hurries) and Chris Gocong (92 tackles, including 7 for a loss) – progressed into full-time starters for the first time in their careers.

From 2004-06, McDermott served as the Eagles secondary/safeties coach. In 2004, he saw both of his starting safeties (Brian Dawkins and Michael Lewis) earn Pro Bowl berths for the first time in team history. Under McDermott's watch, Dawkins went on to earn two more Pro Bowl berths following the 2005 and 2006 seasons. In addition, McDermott has been credited with the development of Eagles S Quintin Mikell.

McDermott worked as the Eagles assistant secondary coach in 2003 and as the club's defensive assistant/quality control coach from 2001-02, working with the linebacker position. In all, McDermott is the longest tenured defensive assistant coach under Jim Johnson.

Under McDermott's watch, one of his players (Dawkins twice, Lewis and Gaither) has been the most productive player on defense in four out of the last five years.

Yada, yada, yada......

Wow sounds like a man-crush??

Good research though!! ;)

And btw, I don't know what type of DC Herm Edwards could be but he definitely is not that great of a head coach. Drove Parcell's solid Jets into the ground and took the top notch O-line and RBs in KC and made it completely atrocious.

Upside: He drafted Brandon Flowers
