Chip Kelly, Perry Fewell among top NFL head coach candidates

By Daniel Jeremiah
Analyst, NFL.com and NFL Network

The 2012 NFL season is far from over, but it's never too early to look ahead. There figures to be several head-coaching vacancies following the season, so let's get a jump on examining some potential candidates for those jobs. I've come up with a list of seven names that will likely garner serious consideration for any head-coaching opportunities that arise following the season. I've also included brief comments from sources inside the NFL about each of the seven candidates.

Chip Kelly
Age: 48
Current job: Head coach, University of Oregon

Kelly has only been a head coach for four seasons at the collegiate level, but he has already established a sterling résumé. He has captured three Pac-10/Pac-12 titles and his team is currently undefeated and ranked No. 2 in the nation. He turned down the Tampa Bay Buccaneers job last offseason, but will likely have another NFL opportunity in 2013. His up-tempo offense would need some alterations to work at the NFL level, but his organizational skills and creativity will be very attractive to NFL owners.

NFC executive: "He runs the best practices I've ever seen. I would hire him in a second if I ever had the opportunity."


Kyle Shanahan
Age: 32
Current job: Offensive coordinator, Washington Redskins

The Redskins' offense has been the talk of the 2012 NFL season. Robert Griffin III has been outstanding, but the design of the Redskins' scheme has been terrific, as well. Kyle Shanahan is getting a lot of praise around the NFL for quickly developing RG3 and designing a creative offense to fit his skills. Shanahan also was very successful during his two-year stint as the Houston Texans' offensive coordinator. In 2009, the Texans finished with the NFL's fourth-ranked offense under his leadership. Despite being only 32 years old, the son of Mike Shanahan already has coached in the NFL for nine seasons.

AFC executive: "Kyle is extremely smart and he's excellent with quarterbacks. He has all of his dad's qualities and he's going to be a great head coach."

Mike McCoy
Age: 40
Current job: Offensive coordinator, Denver Broncos

McCoy has 13 years of NFL coaching experience, including the past four as the Broncos offensive coordinator. Last season, his reputation around the NFL soared as a result of his handling of the transition from Kyle Orton to Tim Tebow. He completely overhauled his scheme in the middle of the season to accommodate Tebow's specific skill set. The Broncos finished the season with the NFL's No. 1 rushing attack. This season, he has smoothly transitioned his offense to suit Peyton Manning. They are currently ranked fourth in passing. Those rankings highlight McCoy's flexibility and willingness to adapt his scheme to his personnel.

NFC personnel executive: "I don't know Mike personally, but I've taken notice of the job he's done in Denver. He deserves a lot of credit for their success in 2011."

Perry Fewell
Age: 50
Current job: Defensive coordinator, New York Giants

Fewell has done an outstanding job with the Giants. Their run to the Super Bowl last season was largely the result of his punishing defensive unit. He has overcome several injuries to key personnel and his reputation around the league is rock solid. He has interviewed for head-coaching jobs in the past, but those teams chose to go in a different direction. Many around the NFL believe he will not be passed over again.

AFC personnel executive: "I've never heard anything negative about him. His results speak for themselves and he deserves a head-coaching opportunity."

Brad Seely
Age: 56
Current job: Special teams coordinator, San Francisco 49ers

Seely has an excellent résumé and should garner consideration for any head-coaching vacancies following the season. He has coached in the NFL for 22 seasons, 10 of which were spent as the special teams coach under Bill Belichick in New England. He has transformed the 49ers' special teams unit into the NFL's very best. The fact that Baltimore's John Harbaugh has successfully made the transition from special teams coach to head coach should help Seely's candidacy.

Former player: "Brad was very well respected in our locker room. He is very detailed and he knows how to communicate."

Ray Horton
Age: 52
Current job: Defensive coordinator, Arizona Cardinals

Horton has quickly established a strong reputation as one of the NFL's top defensive minds. Following a 10-year playing career, he's been a successful assistant coach for 18 years. He served as the secondary coach for the Steelers prior to joining the Cardinals staff as defensive coordinator. The Cardinals have one of the NFL's top defensive units and Horton's scheme is broadly praised around the league.

NFC personnel executive: "He's going to be impressive during the interview process. He's very smart and confident and he has the ability to relate to everyone."


Bill O'Brien
Age: 43
Current job: Head coach, Penn State

It is highly unlikely that O'Brien would depart Penn State after only one season on the job. He has an incredibly expensive buyout clause in his contract and that would be a major deterrent to potential NFL suitors. That being said, he is a very hot name around NFL circles. He was a successful assistant under Bill Belichick and he has shown incredible leadership in guiding the Penn State program through an extraordinarily difficult situation.

Former AFC personnel executive: "Knowing Bill, he has too much integrity to leave those kids, but he's eventually going to be a very successful NFL head coach. He's very tough and organized and he's a winner."

That's not the way I remember it. He took over a very bad squad and made them competitive. He went 3-4, which while not great, it was good for that particular team, which had been awful to that point.

I'm not stating that I'd like to see Fewell hired, I just don't think he sucked.

I think Shanahan would be awful. He's too young and needs either more experience or a college head coaching gig.

At this point, he's Lane Kiffin when he coached the Raiders.

Far from kick ass offenses. Houston was middle of the road at best while Shanahan was there.

Well one thing is for sure. We know what Shanahan has done is not a product of himself. It's a product of experienced and proven coaches around him like Kubiak and his dad.

Give me a coach who has proven he can be THE difference and not just part of the equation.

Well, other than the fact that he's a HEAD COACH and he's not going to jump to the NFL to be an offensive coordinator, especially when earning nearly $5 million per year, nor does he have NFL experience, nor does he fit any of the likely head coach's criteria, or the fact that he runs, the spread, well, nothing.

The problem is, as Lane Kiffin quickly learned, NFL players aren't going to immediately respect a 32 year old coach that's likely hired due to his father's name instead of actually doing something on his own.

Shanahan, at this point in time, would be an epic disaster.

His Big 12 record as a head coach is 64-32 and he's paid $3.75 million per year. He's never won anything significant and he runs the spread offense.

I don't see how he's even on a NFL team's radar.

I dont even know if you're a Kelly backer or not (at work, no time to read every post in threads), but would the players respect a first timer like him, straight from the college ranks with no NFL experience?

The respect factor would be a problem for him as well.

I like Kelly and his peers think he's special. I'm all in, if the Chiefs could hire him.

I don't think NFL players would have any problem playing for him. The guy has been successful at every stop. All you have to do is look at Oregon, which was far from a national power before he arrived.

Mark my words.

If Chip Kelly was the next HC of the Chiefs, he would build a perennial contender in KC. I have zero doubts about that.

He built the spread offense and recruited players that fit that image, capitalizing on the Nike brand and prestige to grab kids from California.

I have no doubt that with his organizational skills and intelligence, that he couldn't turn Jamaal Charles into the best weapon in the NFL, and that he'd do a great job of developing a QB.

I just think the guy has done an outstanding job replacing Jim Harbaugh and in the transition for Luck to Nunes, on top of the points you make above.

I also like that he's not sitting pat with a rather ineffectual Nunes, giving a freshman an extended look today.

I like what it says about Kelly running good practices. More then ever I'm convinced that winning consistently in the NFL is about preparation and execution, not Xs and Os.

My concern with Kelly would be surrounding staff. He has no NFL connections, and I'm not even sure of his NCAA connections. I want a HC that builds his own staff so he's not forced into working with a stranger that the GM picked. Do we really want a defensive staff made up of former New Hampshire coaches?

Of that list I would favor Horton. I would have to know about their leadership qualities, which is the most important thing for an HC. The scheme is usually left to the coordinators, but if he can pass the scheme along to someone that will coordinate it, it might be a plus. IMO we need our D to be more agressive.

I apologize if it's already been mentioned. I read the 1st page & didn't see it.

Chip Kelly said last year the reason he turned down Tampon Bay is he had unfinished work to do at Oregon. He said he's not going anywhere until he wins a National Title.

That's kind of a big thing up here. It's a double edged sword for the locals. They'll lose their coach but have a title.

I'd be happy with Chip Kelly. Plus if we did want to go the Geno route, Chip Kelly would be the perfect fit.

Kyle Shanahan + a QB in round #1

I don't understand why Chip Kelly is such a hot NFL prospect. This reeks of Steve Spurrier 10 years ago. Kelly doesn't run an NFL-style offense and doesn't have any experience or connection to the NFL.

Also, what kind of NFL coaching connections does Jim Harbaugh have? He spent 2 years with the Raiders as an assistant. That's it.

Chip Kelly is smart enough that he can find coaches. For instance, I have no doubt he would keep a lot of the talented guys currently on this staff like Emmitt Thomas

Don't be a spaz. Harbaugh brought his 2 coordinators from Stanford. But both of those guys have long NFL coaching resumes. Hell, Harbaugh himself had the least NFL coaching experience of that Stanford staff, but he obviously played.

By comparison, Kelly's entire staff is made up of career college coaches. In fact, they are mostly Oregon holdovers and retreads. He didn't even build the staff.

Harbaugh and Kelly couldn't be less comparable.

No trying to pick anyone in particular but there is a part of me that likes the idea of a special teams coordinator as a HC. They are use to working for both the offense and the defense. They are not completely tied to either side of the ball. Special Teams are important in making a shorter field for the offense and also pinning the opponent deep for the defense. A good special teams unit makes it easier for both the other squads.

I'd vote for Chip Kelly.

I want no more Bellicheck disciples and no coaches son. Kyle Shanahan was enamored with Rex Grossman at QB last year and ran a very conservative offense. He'd probably like Cassell as his QB ... but for the fact that he has seen a real franchise QB this year in RG III.

The dumbshits trying to compare Harbaugh and Kelly are clueless.

Harbaugh ran an NFL style offense at Stanford... Chip Kelly runs a college-spread offense that would not work in the NFL.

What about those of us that wanted neither of those turds?

People want Chip Kelly because (if he worked) he'd be the type of coach that transforms the game a little bit. He's not an old retread that will try to recreate the 80's or 90's.

Chip Kelly could bring the type of system into the NFL that other teams would copy, he's not the guy that see's what worked somewhere else and brings it to KC.

Running your QB like that in the NFL would get him killed. That would have to change. Chip Kelly is too stupid to know/see/change that. :evil:

Depends. Cam/Tebow are the only Qbs now I can see that physically could hold up. However, their other skills are abysmal, IMO.

I tend to think that Chip is smart enough guy that he would eliminate his zone read, and focus on utilizing his zone blocking scheme with a 1-back set. But who knows. Maybe he's a crazy fuck who would literally get Cassel IRd just for the hell of it.

His spread offense relying on a running QB would fail in the NFL.

The NFL is a passing league and Chip Kelly's offense is not a passing offense.

Oregon is 84th in passing offense this year, 68th last year, and the highest they've finished in passing offense/game since Kelly has been head coach is 39th in the country.

The Chiefs need someone who will bring the high powered passing offense you need to win in today's NFL and that is not Chip Kelly.

Brad Seely
Age: 56
Current job: Special teams coordinator, San Francisco 49ers

Seely has an excellent résumé and should garner consideration for any head-coaching vacancies following the season. He has coached in the NFL for 22 seasons, 10 of which were spent as the special teams coach under Bill Belichick in New England. He has transformed the 49ers' special teams unit into the NFL's very best. The fact that Baltimore's John Harbaugh has successfully made the transition from special teams coach to head coach should help Seely's candidacy.

Former player: "Brad was very well respected in our locker room. He is very detailed and he knows how to communicate."


Awesome.

Bring him in.

Fewell was hired as defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills in 2006 and served in the position through Week 10 of the 2009 season. After a disappointing start, the Bills fired head coach Dick Jauron and Fewell was appointed interim head coach, leading Buffalo to a 3-4 finish. Following the season finale, the Bills fired their entire coaching staff, including Fewell.
