ESPN report: Mora to be next head coach for Hawks after Holmgren retires

ESPN - Source: Mora reaches deal to be Hawks' head coach once Holmgren retires - NFL

Do you think this a good move for the Hawks?

I think it's a good move. I thought he was a good young coach on the rise with ATL.

Re: ESPN report: Mora to be next head coach for Hawks after Holmgren retires

I don't see the need for that announcement...what if the hawks are 5-11 with the worst defense in the league next year? Do you really want to promote Mora at that point? It seems to me that they over reacted to the Redskins interest in him. I didn't see the rest of the league lining up to hire him.

Looking back I would have liked Mora as long as he came with Zorn. However from the look of things Mora pretty much insist on working with Knapp who I don't trust as an OC.

On the other hand, in '05 when GW brought the skins D to an elite top 5 status, he was thought to be a head coaching candidate and we rewrote that clause into his contract to lock him up as Gibb's successor. Now with 20-20 hindsight we can see what that was really worth. There isn't any guarantee in this case either. The NFL is so different from year to year and new trends are being started all the time

I really don't know what to think of this cause it's so unique. I don't think I've ever heard of this before.

Well the Colts have done it with Caldwell, the Cowboys with Garrett (some rumors of the Giants offering it to Spags). It's the new in thing. Rams did it with Martz too

Matty's doing it with SGG (uh oh, spoke too soon)

I thought that was all "talk" though, nothing written in stone, and no one is retiring in a year (ie: Wilson etc.). For instance, Garrett isn't guarenteed the position because no one knows when Wilson is retiring.

Caldwell is officiall, as was Martz. I think you're right that Garrett is just speculation

I thought Caldwell was just verbally given the job after Dungy though? I didn't think they had anything in writing. I could be wrong though, I don't remember.
And what happens if Dungy never retires?

I don't have a link but I'm 99% positive Dungy is retiring after next season and Caldwell's contract was amended to give him the HC job

Well it was Caldwell going around telling everyone Dungy was finished and he was getting the job. I am a bit confused about what went down there. Clearly Caldwell thought the job was his right now but I don't remember it going down totally that way.

Maybe you're right. I just don't recall it going that way. You are closer to that situation than I am though working at ESPN so I'll take your word for it.
