Black Monday Primer: Definitive guide to 2013 coaching carousel
If Jacksonville swung for the fences and missed, Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is a young head coaching candidate who has generated strong reviews for his work the past two seasons with both Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning…Denver’s McCoy, Atlanta offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter or Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell might make the radar screen in Philly.
There’s also a chance New England gets proactive in an attempt to keep McDaniels around as an eventual replacement for head coach Bill Belichick, a move the Kraft family could dangle as enticement to stay put. Some sources say McDaniels’ interest in the Browns has been overstated in the media, because he feels he already has the best assistant coaching job in the NFL, working with Tom Brady and Belichick, and knows continued success will bring other head coaching opportunities…Colts interim head coach Bruce Arians and the Patriots’ McDaniels are two names mentioned in connection with the Chargers job, and both make sense from the standpoint that job No. 1 in San Diego this offseason is to revive quarterback Philip Rivers’ flagging fortunes.
A few thoughts:
- How would McCoy feel about having Tim Tebow potentially foisted upon him in his NFL head-coaching debut, after the same occurred to him in his first go-around as an NFL play-caller? It's hard to see that happening.
- Denver will face both Jacksonville and Philly next season.
- As great as the NE OC job may be, does McDaniels really want to inherit the HC gig from Belichick, and thus the enormous expectations that would come along with it?
- Don't you think Josh would love to face the Broncos twice yearly?
- It's just one column, by one reporter, but it sure is nice not to read of any Jack Del Rio rumors.
