Potential GM/HC/Coaches Thread

I think we can all pretty much agree, the whole coaching staff is gone after this year. Our HC leaving means our "GM" is gone too.

What candidates are y'all looking at? I haven't looked much into it yet. Someone mentioned Ben Johnson from the Lions. I'd definitely put him on the leaderboard as potential HC's.

Drop your thoughts here.

Note - My first thought was to do an Our Coaches Suck thread, which is 100% true. But thought this thread might actually be more helpful/enjoyable for Year 1 under Harris. I consider 2023 as Year 0.

Bring back Kyle Smith as GM and have him pick his coach. He did a great job here and also doing a great job in Atlanta.

I wouldn't be against that. Could definitely be a viable option.

Re: Potential GM/HC/Coaches Thread

If I were them I'd fire Mayhew and hire a real GM soon. Then let that GM have a bit of time before the off season gets here to learn all he needs to know. Being that Mayhew is really second fiddle to Rivera, it may mean you have to get rid of Rivera now. Does it matter who the interim coach is? just evaluate what is left, including every FO employee. Its time to clean house . . . very thoroughly!!

Hadn't crossed my mind before you mentioned it. Harris can simply keep Rivera as HC, but strip him of any GM jobs he has and hire a real GM now. He wouldn't even have to fire anyone yet, because we don't have an official General Manager. He can simply create the position now, hire someone, then fire the rest of the people after the year. Good post!

Mayhew is such fucking trash. I hated the hire

Re: Potential GM/HC/Coaches Thread

I don't have any potential suggestions. However, I am soooo glad EB came here now. Why, because had he been anywhere else, he likely would have been my top choice. I am officially cleared of that delusion.

I agree that Rivera has to go. However, what scares me is the predictions that Washington will hire Belichick. His record has not been much better than Rivera's since Brady left.

He is 71 years old. Such a hard pass on him!! Let's hire someone 51 or younger (I picked 51 because I like Tomlin lol).

I really like that idea. I'd move J Wright and Hurney right on out the door too while we're at it.

Re: Potential GM/HC/Coaches Thread

Idk about the GM position and how that will be handled. It's hard to judge Mayhew when Ron is over him. I would not be opposed to keeping him if he impresses ownership, is given power to pick players and his own coach. I'm not down on him as much as I am on Ron, EB and Jack. MM knows how important o-line play is. He saw it up close. But since he's attached to Ron, he'll most likely be shown the door.

I think Johnson has to be the number one guy on their list for HC.

I wouldn't say he did a great job here. But he's a solid talent evaluator. I'd welcome him back here. Like most guys he's had some hits and had some misses. Falcons have some good players but no QB and a awful head coach. They got 4 wins which is surprising, actually it's shocking.

I don’t about an awful coach, he had a bad game last week. Beat TB yesterday and are 4-3.

Re: Potential GM/HC/Coaches Thread

The main thing I’m worried about if Harris starts making personnel moves now is the disruptive effect it will have on our still fragile, Snyderized operation. An interim HC will not automatically have player loyalty, and if the team descends into chaos (we’re a crappy team but not a dysfunctional one), players will start calling out other players and coaches, and Harris will have a much harder job putting the parts back together.

Harris must have pieces of an FO or at least a GM in the shadows that he is “virtually”grooming to take over. My guess is that he has an NFL-tested consigliere type by his side now (along with Rales, Magic), helping to evaluate and formulate plans for new leadership. Somewhere there’s a 40-year old offensive coach or assistant making his bones right now, using this season to put himself on the map. (No retreads, please.)

How Harris treats RR, MM, and the rest during the transition will send strong signals to potential replacements about what kind of owner he is. This doesn’t mean bending over to be nice to everyone, but just being deliberative and decisive when the time comes. The last thing Harris wants is to be seen as a continuation of the impetuous, revolving door administration of Dan.

My guess is that the next GM and HC are under contract now with other NFL teams and that the Harris group will do their homework and work their magic to land them when they’re available for interviews.

Next 10-games = more fan pain, but more clarity on who’s got what it takes to be part of a winning franchise.
