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.

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

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 holds the official title of GM. So they would have to fire him and strip Rivera of any personnel responsibilities (or just fire him too).

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

Absolutely the first move that should be made. It is possible he has his sights on someone currently employed though. Either way it is move 1, before the season ends or after, but I wouldn’t rush to get someone in there. If he wants to wait until the offseason Im fine with it actually.

If we're going to move any players by the trade deadline, Josh Harris just needs to call around to other owners for their recommendations of a competent former player personnel executive whom he can hire right now as a consultant to assist him with any trade deadline moves. He does not need to fire either Mayhew or Rivera; he can simply instruct them that he will handle any and all trades until further notice. If it tips his hand that they will both be fired before next season, so what? If they don't like it they are free to resign their positions. He should put a stop to any more Rivera/Mayhew foul ups right now.

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.

EB needs way more than 7 games calling plays in his career as an OC before anyone realistically should think he deserves an opportunity as a head coach. Hopefully the days of Jim Zorning are behind us

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.
