Peter King coaching candidates for 2013
5. I think these sound like the top five college coaching candidates for NFL head coaching jobs, per chats with front office people in the last two weeks (in order):

1. Chip Kelly, Oregon
2. David Shaw, Stanford
3. Brian Kelly, Notre Dame
4. Kirk Ferentz, Iowa (even coming off the bad season at Iowa, he's well-respected in the NFL)
5. Doug Marrone, Syracuse.

I didn't include Bill O'Brien of Penn State because (and call me na´ve) I can't see him preaching love of, and loyalty to, Penn State, and then leaving after 12 months. But never say never in this business.

6. I think these sound like the top 10 NFL assistants who will get sniffs for head coaching jobs in the league next year (in order):

1. Mike McCoy, Denver offensive coordinator
2. Mike Zimmer, Cincinnati defensive coordinator
3. Vic Fangio, San Francisco defensive coordinator
4. Perry Fewell, Giants defensive coordinator
5. Dirk Koetter, Atlanta offensive coordinator
6. Dave Toub, Chicago special teams coordinator
7. Bruce Arians, Indianapolis interim head coach/offensive coordinator
8. Ray Horton, Arizona defensive coordinator
9. Kyle Shanahan, Washington offensive coordinator
10. Clyde Christensen, Indianapolis quarterbacks coach.

I wouldn't touch any of the college guys.

11-26-2012 09:08 AM

Ferentz? LMAO

11-26-2012 09:08 AM

Gotta have Greg Roman on that list, too.

11-26-2012 09:09 AM

As assistants go, I like fewell, fangio, and Horton. Don't think its the route we should go, however.

If Pioli remains in KC, hes probably the only option on that list.

11-26-2012 09:13 AM

No to anyone from the "tree". I want new fresh blood to coach this team.

11-26-2012 09:13 AM

McCoy and Fangio would be high on my list if i was running things.

He's got a ton of respect in NFL circles. What Joe Philbin (a former Ferentz assistant) is doing in Miami doesn't hurt.

That being said, as a Hawkeye fan and Chiefs fan, I don't want this guy in KC. He's too conservative for my taste.

Peter King is smart.

11-26-2012 09:24 AM

no "Josh McD" ????? I guess he's already locked up here.

11-26-2012 09:25 AM

Ferentz would make RAC look like an Arena coach.

Greg Schiano's success has made the hiring of a college coach more palatable.

I'd love Kelly (either one) or Shaw. I'd like McCoy or Roman.

11-26-2012 09:28 AM

McCoy would be my top choice. I want an offensive guy that will bring in a top DC to take care of the defense.

11-26-2012 09:32 AM

Interesting that Jay Gruden didn't make the cut.
