Re: Our next coach??

More news/rumors by them...

Buzz building for Holmgren to Seahawks
Posted by Mike Florio on November 23, 2009 8:53 PM ET
The chatter is intensifying regarding a possible return by former Packers and Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren to the organization with which he spent ten seasons, from 1999 through 2008.

We've been hearing the talk for a while, and the contractual status of current President of Football Operatons/G.M. Tim Ruskell could set the stage for Ruskell to depart after the year sans buyout, and for Holmgren to return as the high man on the totem pole.

There's even some talk it could happen within the next week or two, despite the reality that Holmgren could be hired only after at least one minority candidate is interviewed for the job.

But it's unclear whether the league would permit "permanent" hires of this nature to be made during the season, since possible candidates under contract with other teams cannot be considered until the season ends.

Regardless of how it all plays out, the Seahawks can't be overlooked as a potential candidate to re-employ Holmgren, who also is widely believed to be under consideration to join the Browns.

Re: Our next coach??

and yet more.....

Bills contact Bill Cowher
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on November 23, 2009 8:08 PM ET
The Buffalo Bills aren't going after coordinators this time around.

Frustrated by a decade of futility, Bills owner Ralph Wilson is hunting big game in the coaching field. He's expected to meet with Mike Shanahan this week, and the NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that the team also contacted Bill Cowher last week.

Cowher's policy is that he isn't interested in discussing any jobs until after the season -- out of respect to CBS and current coaches.

While nothing will happen on the Cowher front for a while, The Chin is reportedly closer to returning to coaching that he has been since retiring. And Buffalo will reportedly spend big bucks.

A "source close to Cowher" told NFL Network that compensation in Buffalo could reach $10 million-per-season. (Spittle comes free.) It sounds like Wilson is willing to pay a lot, but he also has to be worried about being used to drive up a coach's price for another team.

No matter how things shake out, it would be surprising if Wilson doesn't have plenty of competition for Shanahan and Cowher.

Apparently Cowher has hinted that he wouldn't mind the Bears job, not interested in the Bills job, and not surprisingly definitely interested in Carolina.

I could see Marty in Buffalo, I think he'd prefer to be in the AFC and Buffalo (the city-of which I actually know nothing) seems to fit his personality.

I like what i have heard from him, I imagine he will go somewhere else next year
It's looking more and more likely that he'll be coaching Fred Smith's son in Memphis. He's definitely a finalist

Re: Our next coach??

If Holmgren took Seattle's GM would he hire Zorn after we fire him(assuming we do)

Bears? I must be oblivious. I didn't even know they were thinking about canning their HC? I thought the only teams were

Bills
Browns
Skins
Panthers
Titans

and contingent on how well they do this yr...
Dallas
Chargers


I get the feeling I'm missing someone but I didn't think it was the Bears?

Re: Our next coach??

A Shanahan/Cutler reunion could happen in Chicago if they continue to slide. I'm wondering at this point if the fan base will be more excited by a name coach or by an unknown but well respected GM. I think as long as the Vinny/Zorn show mercifully ends we will all be happier.

After the last month I think Fischer stays there. Tenn is one of the better teams right now in football.

I wouldn't be shocked if we fired Zorn and hired Blache to take over full time. I'm surprised his name hasn't bubbled to the top. Bring in a new O-coordinator and retain Sherm Lewis. I know Blache has talked about retiring, but money talks and you would maintain some sense of continuity on the defensive side of the ball.

If Blache steps up or is even offered the deal, then I wouldn't mind us going after Greg Manusky for the 49ers to be our D-Coordinator/Assistant Head Coach. At the very least, I think Blache and Sherm Lewis get an interview because of the Rooney Rule.

Blache wanted to retire prior to the Zorn hiring. DS convinced him not too. I don't think there's much of a chance of Blache as a head coach.

I was thinking along the same lines as you, only instead of Blache how about Jerry Gray?

Yeah if the Bears continue to crash & burn there could be a change there at HC.

I think as long as we hire a capable GM, i'll be happy w/ their decision. If VC is here I don't think I'll be happy no matter who our new coach is.

I like Jerry Gray. He could be a candidate for many openings but purely from a fan standpoint, i just want a change. I can't take much more of the same team/coaches. We need a fresh start i think from the GM down.

Never say never, dude. That's all I'm saying. I don't think it's out of the question.

And the way Blache publicly defended Snyder has endeered him to Snyder for sure. Blache may not be many things, but loyal he is. I would say that's a quality Snyder values above all else.

I'm campaigning for Blache unless he says in no uncertain terms, he's not interested in being head coach of the Redskins.
