I'm betting a new coach will be named early next week - so now's the time to pick your horse.

Who's it gonna be?

Haley?

Shanahan?

Cowher?

Bowles?

Frazier?

Mystery Candidate?


Let's find out who the Planet thinks will be the 11th Head Coach in Chiefs history.

When I guess, I guess wrong, but let's say I guess: Haley

What the hell, I'll play.

I suck at this game, but Cowher's been at the top of my wishlist for a long time. I've always liked him. So, I've got my fingers crossed for Cowher. I think he'll be the next coach of the KC Chiefs.

PS - I'm almost always wrong about this stuff. Here's to hope!

All along I've been saying it will be a "WTF" hire - but as much as I hate to admit it, I'm starting to think that regardless of what the media says, Shanahan or Cowher could end up being the guy.

I'd actually be more surprised if we hire Haley - though everyone seems to think he's the favorite - than I would be if they hired Shanny or Cowher.

It's pretty much impossible for me to speculate, esp since they are going to be super quiet about whats going on. I assume when the SB is over we'll hear something shortly. There were some WTF candidates last year and they had some success, we'll just have to trust pioli. I definetly won't rule anyone out, even cowher and shanny.

01-30-2009, 01:23 PM
I don't know much about Pioli, so I can't really figure what he's going to do. That said, to now he's come across as a very cautious and deliberate person who covers all of his bases and who also has a plan. He has also said that philosophically, he looks more at production than potential when evaluating a player, so he strikes me as a person who would rather go for something he can quantify than something he'd have to guess on. So if that carries over to the coaching search, it would make more sense to me that he'd prefer to hire someone with past experience as a head coach rather than a rookie guy with no experience. So I am not sold that Haley is his choice, nor am I sold that it should be his choice.

The other thing I wonder about with Haley, and maybe this is an unfair statement, but he has four little kids as far as I know, and would he be OK with putting everything aside and making football and being in charge of turning around the Chiefs as the head guy the top priority? Because as much time as assistants have to put in, the HC will have to be all in, and Pioli has worked with guys like Bellichik and Parcells who lived football pretty much 24/7...

Initially, I thought that the Cowher rumor had legs, Mr. OnTheWarpath58. I mean, who's going to live in that house he bought? If it's unoccupied for too long, some lonely, half-mad, flea-infested hobo is going to claim squatter's rights and the neighborhood will go straight to hell. But now, I'm not so sure they were legs at all. They appear to have been more like pogo sticks. So, I'm going with Bruce Arians. He would be a first time HC (I believe that Pioli would prefer that), a guy who's offensive-minded, someone who has helped develop a young quarterback into a star (Payton The Ultra Magnificent For An AssClown Hillbilly), and - as a dark horse candidate - allows us to meet the requirements of the Rooney Rule all in one fell swoop ... or fell hop ... or something.

I don't know, I'm really starting to get this weird feeling it could be Cowher. A lot of things make sense for him being the next HC.

DaneMcCloud
01-30-2009, 01:30 PM
From a logical standpoint, I chose Haley.

IMO, it doesn't make any sense not to have hired a coach that's currently unemployed (Shanahan, Cowher, etc.) or a coach from the college ranks before the Senior Bowl, let alone the Super Bowl.

That leaves coordinators still coaching. Arians and LeBeau are out for obvious reasons, which leaves Pendergast and Haley.

Pendergast has never been mentioned as a head coaching candidate, anywhere. That leaves Haley.

Since Haley has ties with Pioli, I'd say he's the choice.

When would they have had time to interview all their candidates, and hire someone?

Herm was just fired a week ago today. Late in the day. Any potential new hire already missed the Senior Bowl.

That means they had 2 days to conduct interviews and make an announcement, as the NFL prefers you not overshadow the SB and make big news. Neither Pioli or Clark are the types to ruffle the feathers of the league, unlike Al Davis.

I think a lot of people are going to be surprised, and disappointed when it's not Haley.

ONTHEWARPATH58 THE HAPPY (TO SEE FAX BACK)

I had no idea Arians coached for the Chiefs.

Gretz interviewed him yesterday and has a piece on his blog about it. That Chiefs coaching staff that Marty had with him in the beginning was very impressive.

http://www.bobgretz.com/chiefs-football/friday-morning-cup-o%E2%80%99super-bowl.html#more-6718

And that staff of 12-men helped turn around the fortunes of the franchise. Consider the names Schottenheimer put together:


Joe Pendry Offensive Coordinator.
Al Saunders Wide receivers coach.
Bruce Arians Running backs coach.
Howard Mudd Offensive line coach.
Kurt Schottenheimer Special teams coach.
Bill Cowher Defensive Coordinator.
Tom Pratt Defensive line coach.
Tony Dungy Secondary coach.
Darvin Wallis Defensive quality control.
Dave Redding Strength & conditioning.
Russ Ball assistant strength & condition.

The question I've seen asked, but not yet answered (although I could have missed it) is which minority candidate will receive an interview.

Clark is a huge supporter of the Rooney rule, and he very well may have already done interviews with several people, including a minority candidate.

But there's been no word on who that person is or could be. So ... anyone have some ideas on that?

As to your other question, no one here has any idea what's going on a One Arrowhead Drive or what's in the minds of Scott Pioli and Clark Hunt. Maybe they've already satisfied the Rooney Rule by interviewing some like Romeo Crennel but they had Haley targeted as their guy all along.

Gil Brandt on Sirius said he heard the new HC will be announced on Monday or Tuesday at the latest and he couldn't divulge the name of who it was.

Who know if he knows but that's interesting...couldn't be Haley if that were the case.

I think I agree with you on that one right there Mr. Mr. Plow. I want to see the Chiefs start off with someone new. Preferably young. Offensive-minded. A guy who would rather have excellent assistants than the spotlight.

I wondered that myself. I am assuming he interpreted it as the announcement COULD be made before that, in which case it couldn't be Haley.

Can't see him being interviewed and hired in 1 or 2 days.

It wouldn't surprise me if Pioli surprised everybody.

Ever since that Carl guy hung up his leathers, there's been a whole lotta speculatin' going on. I mean, a year ago, how many peeps would have dreamed that we would land Pioli as GM? Very few, I would think. As Pioli's master plan unfolds before us like a beautiful, unblemished labia in the morning sun, I'm pretty sure a lot of prognosticators will find themselves in error. Do they play football in Japan?

'Course we haven't "Interviewed" him yet. But, if he's the one Clark and Scott are interested in, I'm sure they have already taken care of their homework. I wouldn't be surprised that, though they haven't talked to Haley themselves, they could talk to a third party - like someone's father in law that would be calling to chit chat with Haley on how things are going getting ready for the SB.


I would imagine things could move pretty quick once the SB is over.

I think it was stated in one of the Arizona papers that we haven't even asked for permission to speak with him.

I'd like it to be Cowher, but I'm afraid it won't happen. Haley appers to be the man considdering the inaction of scott (it seems we will have to wait till after the sb for him to make first contact with our new HC). I will say it is hard to forsee what will happen in this new era of the Chiefs, but imho that's how I see it.

I wouldn't look at it like that. If multiple calls are being made to coaches around the league on behalf of Haley, it should be pretty easy to verify.

The question is why Haley's doing it. Is it because he knows he has a new job waiting for him, or because he's letting all the media stuff lead him into thinking he's at the top of the list.

I would doubt it's the latter, but I don't know the guy.

After hearing Bill Parcels make a statement about his decision to stay with the Miami Dolphins and specifically mentioning his commitment to help Bowles and Sporano get the team stabilized in the right direction, I no longer think Bowles is the next KC HC.

I didn't know Saunders coached for Marty.

After Hackett left to coach USC, Marty was talking to Jimmy Raye, the Chiefs RB coach at the time, and Saunders, the Chiefs WR coach, about replacing Hackett.

I was pissed that he chose Raye over Saunders.

From that fat tub o' goo Peter King's article yesterday...

9. I think there's a chance Todd Haley's occasionally flaring temper will be a factor in whether he one day gets a head-coaching shot.

It's interesting that he says ONE DAY if he gets a head-coaching shot not that he's going to coach this year or be the guy in KC as everyone else claims as a lock but yours truly. You think he knows something as well? Especially if it involves Cowher?

And also Gil Brandt was on NFL Sirius Radio today and he said the KC job will be filled after the Super Bowl either on Monday or Tuesday. You guys still think Pioli is going to be able to hire Haley in a 24 hour period -especially when you consider he's never interviewed the man?

True, but he could have announced a new head coach after firing the old. While its possible it could be Frazier or Bowles, I would have thought a deal would have been done with them in time for the announcement. As tight lipped as the Chiefs have been throughout this whole thing, I don't think they could have kept the lid on a new coach having been hired this week.

When would they have had time to interview all their candidates, and hire someone?

Herm was just fired a week ago today. Late in the day. Any potential new hire already missed the Senior Bowl.

That means they had 2 days to conduct interviews and make an announcement, as the NFL prefers you not overshadow the SB and make big news. Neither Pioli or Clark are the types to ruffle the feathers of the league, unlike Al Davis.

I think a lot of people are going to be surprised, and disappointed when it's not Haley.

This! I say it's Cowher or Shanny but I got this weird feeling it is Shanny and Shefter will be soooooooooooooorely humbled.ROFL
